Does anyone already have their homes lit & have their inflatable Santa & Rudolph on their lawns? I have a neighbor who apparently has forgotten that Christmas is still 45 days away...

I knew a lady years ago who had Christmas yard ornaments all year long.
I dont understand inflatables it like wasted electricity especially a month and half away. Then during the day its deflated and looks like pieces of plastic rubbish laying over the yard.

If its windy santa will fly. If he lands in your yard keep him til Christmas.

Yea, they're already playing Christmas music in department stores? The season used to start after Thanksgiving.

It is my favorite time of the year but too early for me and I get tired of it.

I like starting w/ the decorations the weekend after Thanksgiving, weather permitting. I am pretty restrained w/ outdoor decorations, tho. White lights and candles/wreaths in windows - and some greenery around entry way fixtures . . . I don't like a lot of yard art . . . plus it is a pain to take it all down! :-)

I say it is pretty much when one has free time to get it put up. Maybe they had free time on hand and thought, just get it up. I have been guility of decorating early, maybe not this early, but definitely before Thanksgiving.

Tis the season!

Typically I would imagine it would be right after Thanksgiving. But then again, most people are morons and simply do what anyone tells them
