    The Christmas season shouldn`t officially start until Santa makes his appearance at the Macy`s Day Parade.

    In Canada, I give anything after November 11th fair game. Our Thanksgiving is in early October but I think it`s disrespectful to start celebrating until after Remembrance Day (our Veterans Day)

    There`s no point in forcing the XMas decorating of anything until the end of November, the feeling and anticipation of XMas doesn`t even start until December 15th anyways. Planning everything, gifts, travel, etc... up to XMas is not my idea of "Tis the season".

    Why? Because economic forecasts tell us no one is spanding any money anyway so we`ll defer the cost of seasonal employees and decorations until a later time as this is the most fiscally responsible thing to do.

    December the 1st is the earliest that decorations should go up. Of course as we don`t have Thanksgiving in this part of the world, decorations usually go up sometime in mid November.

    I like doing my Christmas art and crafts gifts/projects in October. That way I can actually relax and enjoy the holidays when they roll around. For me theres nothing worse than trying to be artsy during a holiday rush.

    I can remember the days when you didn`t see Xmas stuff until after Thanksgiving. I don`t care about their motive, I think it`s great anyway!

    Love it. Do it too early and it sorta takes some of the magic out of it by the time the holiday actually rolls around. Though for people like me, it`s definitely time to start thinking about gifts...I`m a horrible Christmas shopper.

    While I DO need to start considering gifts right around now, being a terrible gift shopper for any holiday, I DO NOT need to hear Christmas music already.

    The fact that they ARE playing the music already is further proof that Christmas is no longer about ANY of it`s original ideals, pagan or Christian, but instead about making money. The earlier they can usher in the "holiday shopping season," the more sales they can get.

    But I`m pretty sure we all knew that already.

    I can understand my store, because it`s a craft store, and people like me take forever to make crafts, but still.

    I work at B&Q (it`s a big diy store like home depot for those of you not from the UK) and they`ve just finished putting up the full Christmas display and products inc a 12ft fake tree. It`s just depressing to walk the the "Christmas wonderland" in the middle of Oct.

    Harrods over here were the first to start on Christmas, with decorations and their xmas dept to open. Same with Selfridges, and this was July!

    Gathering presents fine, crafting deparments carrying xmas ware from whenever really is fine, because people want to shop early, but I hate seeing Xmas crap when we haven`t even done halloween! Three weeks ago, the Xmas Box opened in our town, there`s been Xmas decorations, gifts etc in the super market for several weeks.

    In some places of the UK they`ve even put up their Xmas Display lights in Sept!

    It`s fun to see xmas, just not 5 months onwards before it actually hits us.

    The Kmart down the street has had a whole section of their store devoted to Christmas stuff since early September. Who buys this stuff that early?

    Hurrah for Nordstrom.
    The others take a great holiday and start so early we`re sick of it before it arrives.

    Where I work they started putting Christmas stuff out a week ago. This week there`s now more Christmas things in the department than Halloween. We didn`t even decorate for Halloween this year! Very sad...

    My neighbor`s leave their Christmas lights up year-round to save themselves the hassle and hardship of taking down and subsequently reassembling the festive decorations each fall. To act otherwise would be un-American.
