How Soon is Now?

How soon is too soon to start letting the holiday decor creep into my house? Not asking for a friend.

The winter holidays are my favorite time of year: I love cold weather, I love paid time off work, I love sparkly lights and the smell of fir trees and festive foods. It is the best. I also love my paper snowflake garlands and fair isle stockings and candles and, well, what I’m asking is: when can I get them out? Now? How about now?

I already put up these little white ceramic candle holders that look like snow-covered houses ($3 at Target dollar spot!) and when my husband saw them he kind of gently chided me about starting the Christmas decorating so early. I quickly informed him that this is in fact not Christmas decor but rather winter hygge decor. So that’s handled.

When do you unleash the holiday spirit at your house?



  1. We’re planning on chopping down a tree at a tree farm the Sat after Thanksgiving. We waited until the first weekend in Dec last year and the trees were too picked over, so we had to settle for one that was pre-cut. Since orange is my favorite color I like keeping my pumpkins and orange items out as long as I can!
