Christmas is my favorite holiday, so I am usually one of the first people to get excited about Christmas lights and hear Christmas songs. The day AFTER Thanksgiving is my ideal time to start the festivities. Many families decorate before Thanksgiving as they host families traveling from far away who won’t be there on Christmas. Many people wait until December 1st.
My family actually falls into the “too busy to stick to our schedule” category and end up talking about decorating for days without actually doing it. This year is the worst for getting our decorations up because we have just moved and haven’t even been able to unpack everything yet! Needless to say, it’s preferred in my family to get a full month worth of decorations rather than just a couple weeks.
So what is your preference? Should the decorations come up as soon as possible, or closer to the day-of? Let me know in the comments below!
Advent Day 2
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
