I quit caring long ago what people thought or said about me putting things up early. My inlaws would say a rude comment here or there and sometimes others..HOWEVER when they realized it didn't work and year after year after year I STILL put my stuff up Nov 1st-ish they quit When we moved to the lake 6 yrs ago, I think I shocked a few neighbors when they seen I had all my stuff up.. but now guess what? There are several around here that followed my lead and have even beaten me and put up their outdoor decore before us! I say the longer it is up to enjoy it the better! My kids haven't stopped talking about "in 2 weeks mom! In 2 weeks!!" they are so excited. My youngest son said to me this morning.. "We are so lucky our mom loves Christmas so much".
Where has this year gone! cant believe it is here already. Im putting my stuff up early this year too. I was going to wait til the 23rd,but decided Im going to put everything up in my yard and home on the 12th!

Ya...me too! Now...the entire family knows me - and they know how I am so full of the Christms spirit that they don't tease me anymore. They might giggle a little...but that's totally okay with me. They just know that I am who I am...and they would think there was something really wrong with me if I didn't put the Christmas Tree up early!
