I will watch a christmas movie or listen to christmas music anytime through out the year when the mood strikes me which happens alot. LOL!
Thanksgiving weekend is the big kick off to the Christmas season for us. We will let the kids put up their tree in their bedroom between Halloween and Thanksgiving and we may start putting up the outide decoration the weekend before Thanksgiving but the rest of the inside decorations and outside lights do not go up and get turned on until Thanksgiving weekend.
We enjoy Halloween and Thanksgiving. We also decorate for those holidays as well.
