Day 866's question
When we were in New York last week, the sidewalks were filled with workers stringing lights, hanging garland and tying bows. The Macy's at Herald Square was so crowded that I don't even want to think about what it will be like in December. The snowflakes lights were up at Saks (though I never saw them on). I thought this early decorating was isolated to New York, which obviously draws a big holiday crowd, but sure enough, the garland is up at the mall near my office and even at the grocery store. One of my facebook friends announced yesterday that she was putting up her Christmas Tree.
Personally, my Christmas decorations will stay in the box until after Thanksgiving, but that doesn't necessarily mean that seeing them around town doesn't get me in a festive mood. So what about you? When will you decorate for Christmas (or what-have-you)? And while we're on the topic, is this year going to be different than years past (I hate to use the dreaded e-word!)?
