2020 has definitely been what I'd describe as an annus horribilis, so it's no surprise that many people have already began to capitalise on the Christmas celebrations - quite a few people I know have already put up their Christmas trees! :headfire:

How does this make you feel? Do you think it's OK to do it so early or do you have a specific time when it's acceptable? I really want to put my tree up but we have a family tradition not to do that until my brother's birthday in December

We put ours up yesterday - not sure how I feel about it since I had a rough time last Christmas and it's reminding me of that, but my family love it.

Thank you, it's heading in a much better direction this year, and it's lovely seeing my mum all excited by the pretty lights anyway, so I think early Christmas is acceptable this year

Just noticed that there's a tree at the entrance to my college and am not a fan
In my opinion you shouldn't put anything up until December 1 at the earliest

I'm so glad to hear this! :grin: I think it probably is too, I've been listening to Christmas music since October...

I put all my Christmas tree and decorations up on 1 December.
My friend is Christmas obsessed; plays Christmassy music all year round and has her decorations up every day- changes the decorations three times a year.

Oh my god! That’s certainly some dedication :laugh: does that mean you get gifts and Christmas dinner all year round too....?

Why has the idea of a Halloween tree never occurred to me before?! Genius!

I’ve never celebrated Christmas but I do rather enjoy it, if I were to put one up it’d be a week before Christmas break, just to help me push through college work with some festivity..

Yeah I saw that they were putting one up and decorating it at the entrance. My friend was writing a program just to test something out and as the text inside it she put the lyrics to All I Want For Christmas Is You as well :lol:
