In a culture where malls are putting up Christmas decorations as early as October, the question begs to be asked:
When is it time to decorate?
In my debut novel, Wildflowers from Winter, the hero, Evan Price, has this thought about his brother and sister-in-law:
Unlit Christmas lights wrapped around the gutters. Micah always put the lights up at the beginning of November. They were that couple. The couple that skipped right over Thanksgiving in their eagerness to spread yuletide cheer.
On the other hand, the heroine, Bethany, thinks decorating before Thanksgiving should be illegal.
In our house, it’s a tradition to put the tree up on black Friday while all the rest of the crazy world goes shopping.
So this week, as we get ready to gorge ourselves on turkey and stuffing and cranberry sauce (bleck) and pumpkin pie, this is what I would like to know….
Let’s Talk: When do you start putting up the Christmas decorations?
Happy Thanksgiving! Join me next Monday as we kick off the Christmas festivities and learn about a whole slew of holiday giveaways.
