Notice all the houses decorated for Christmas before Thanksgiving Day?
Driving around town you see more than one cement goose lawn ornament dressed as a pilgrim. There is a Minnie Mouse statue dressed as Pocahontas.
Early in the week you could hear the leaf blowers throughout the different neighborhoods. Streets were lined with piles of leaves waiting on city crews.
Yes, at our house we opted to get ahead of the bad weather and decorate with the outside lights. Although we will NOT turn the lights on until it gets closer to Christmas, it was easier to string the lights along the eaves when our fingers weren’t so cold.
There is a house in Greene County that has Christmas lights up and lit for display the day after Halloween. I’m afraid if we start with the Christmas decorations in October, we might tire of them by December.
But then again, there is a house that has their holidays up already. Simply because they have never taken them down all year.
It is difficult to get in the Christmas spirit still munching Halloween candy.
