I swear every year there’s a huge debate about Christmas. When is it okay to play Christmas music? When is it okay to start selling Christmas stuff? When is it okay to put decorations up? It’s never ending.
I’ll admit that Christmas music can be slightly frustrating if the festive season is the furthest thing from your mind. I once worked in a shop that put Christmas music on the day after Halloween. Yup. Imagine having every single customer that comes through the door moaning about it for two months.
And as for decorations? Some people wait until December 1st, some people wait until 12 days before the big event. Now I don’t work in a public place that has been shoving everything Christmas related down my throat, I really don’t care much. And not just about the decorations – about the whole thing. *cue audible gasps from all around*
With that in mind, I have still been buying a few Christmas presents for my family (they’ve all got an orange and a bit of coal) and I’ve even tried to jolly myself up by putting some fairy lights in my bedroom!
I’ve had the silver beads up since last Christmas (they’re cute okay!), and I do actually have fairy lights wrapped around my headboard… so lights don’t make me think ‘BE FESTIVE’ as much as they used to. They still look nice though! And they were only £2.50 from Tesco, so I didn’t break the bank.
I’ll keep trying! I spend a lot of time in my car for work, so I might get some tinsel and decorate the inside! That’s not illegal… is it?
When do you put your decorations up? What’s the earliest you’ve ever known anyone to put them up?
