We asked Plant City: When is the appropriate time to start putting up Christmas decorations? When is it too early to start putting them up?
“I usually wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving, but I may start early this year.” – Crystal Reilly
“After Thanksgiving, but if you want to do it before I support that also. And I take it all down the day after Christmas.” – Ashley Adkins-Melendez
“After Thanksgiving. One holiday away a time. Shopping for a big family though can start anytime during the year.” – Carrie Harper
“Everyone has their own tradition so there’s going to be dozens of differing opinions. None of them will be wrong. Personally mine go up the weekend after Thanksgiving and come down the weekend after New Year’s.” – Yvonne Simonds Walker
“For most of my life I’ve always waited until after Thanksgiving dinner, usually the tree goes up after we’ve cleared the table and while watching The Muppet Christmas Carol, but last year we put them up right after Halloween because we needed extra cheer. Now this year the kids are already asking to decorate so I may give in and switch the decorations early again.” – Teena Garbus
“Whatever your heart desires. If it makes you happy, do it.” – Karen Young
