It was about a week ago when I first drove down my street (actually it was John driving) and I noticed all the Christmas lights lining the streets of my apartment complex. The apartment owners had strung the trees with glowing lights. I was taken aback. The first week of November, and Christmas lights already?
Since then I have seen them all around the apartment complex. Individual tennants have "gotten into the Christmas spirit" and hung their Christmas decorations also. I have gone downtown, and seen them on houses there also.
I'm a little perplexed. It's still a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving! When I was growing up, you didn't do Christmas until after Thanksgiving. At first it was much after. And then it was the day after. Now it's before!
Another thing that's a little funny about my town. After decorating for Christmas, we leave the Christmas lights up until April or May. Even June! Now that part I like! It makes everybody a little more festive and nicer to each other, LOL!
So how is it done where you live? Are your Christmas lights and decorations already up in your town? And if so, do you think it is too early? As for me, it's way too early. I plan on enjoying Thanksgiving first!
