Well this is a hot topic 😳, is it too early to put up the Christmas decorations,

This is my first Christmas as a newly single women with a teenager daughter and after last year I’m thinking what the hell and so tempted to start pulling the Dec’s out of loft and going for it, what do you think 🤔

      Go for it! No one is judging.

      Made me remember – if you have a lot of Christmas lights go to Aldi for batteries! I was reading the Which report on batteries – Aldi is the clear winner and a fraction of the price of the big names.

      I don’t put mine up til December.,i don’t get excited by the thought of Christmas at all now, at least you can get them down and see what you’ve got

      I’m pretty much anti Christmas but last year, in lockdown, with only garden centres open, we bought some new tree decorations, so looking forward to getting them out this year. But not till December 1st at the least.

      It’s too early for me, but if you love the decorations then go for it! Chez moi decorations go up a few days before Christmas and come down by 6 January (although I can’t remember why it’s 6 January). That’s enough tinsel and glitter for me.

      Don’t bother much with Christmas, just a few ornaments that mum likes but they don’t go up till the week before Christmas.
      If it cheers you up go for it !

      Remember one year put them up on November 14 was our son’s second birthday 🙃

      I don’t mind putting them up early – but I prefer them down on January 2nd – it’s all over by then.

      Well never used to put them until 2 weeks before Christmas… But found myself newly single and I now think anything goes as lifestyle changes and time flys..
      If it makes you smile go for it 😁
