Too early for Christmas?

Went to Kohl's yesterday and found out they were having a HUGE sale on their Christmas decorations (like, 50% off!) ..since we don't have any Christmas stuff yet, I decided to go ahead and get some things.. and since the trip to Kohl's put me in the Christmas Decorating shopping mood-- on my way to get groceries at Wal-Mart (who doesn't have their Christmas stuff up yet, boo!) I stopped by the Goodwill.

I want to put snowmen in the bathroom and here are some things that you'll be seeing again when I actually decorate:

*This guy plugs in and lights up..loveeee it. *Found this (above) at GOODWILL!!

Since the bathroom is going to be snowmen, without a lot of color, I am going to do the living and dining room in color. (But NOT colored lights on the tree..I hate those)

Stockings!! I loveeee stockings.

[love these placemats]

When can you decorate for Christmas? It is okay to decorate before Thanksgiving? I just LOVE Christmas and can't wait to put up all of the cool stuff I got!

Decorate now if you want, it's November so go for it. All the Christmas commercials will be on anytime, anyway. Besides, it's a bummer to have tons of cute decorations and only use it for 3 or 4 weeks.

I just asked my husband when I can put up our Christmas stuff, and he said Thanksgiving.

I'm OK with the stores putting it out November 1st, but I really wanted to punch Santa last week.

I love your decorations.

There is a house in our neighborhood that already has their Christmas tree up! And they have no shame, since they have it in front of the window all lit up after dark! haha.

I am soooo excited for Christmas, but I'm having trouble deciding whether I should spend $$ on Christmas deco's or more paint and new curtains. (sigh)

Hi Megan ~ you can definitely decorate any time you'd like to. I put mine up the day after Thanksgiving, but might do it earlier this year, since we're in a new house!

My entire tree is for snowmen only. I love them.

I don't decorate until after Thanksgiving and it comes down just after New Year's, otherwise I would get sick of looking at it.
