Kay???? Report 1 Dec 2017 18:15

and so soon in the day,staff probally thought they would get in early to save the whinging,


SylviaInCanada Report 1 Dec 2017 18:18

nice to see that GR is on the ball, but it's a bit early don't you think??

Certainly is for me!

I'll have forgotten they are there by the time Christmas week comes around

But then, we've never decorated until the weekend before Christmas.

A guy near here lit up for halloween and has added to by the week with all sorts of christmas stuff to the point it looks tacky and can be seen from outer space I'm sure. :-D.

a few door garlands are going up aswell,some will be house decorated over the weekend,,,,,,I always wonder how they clean their house full of decorations gathering dust for a month........ :-D

Kay ............

re ",,,,I always wonder how they clean their house full of decorations gathering dust for a month........ "

I also wonder that!!!

I know my daughter and her OH put up the outside lights last weekend, and that they will have the tree up and decorated this coming weekend, along with lots of other decorations. That also involves some moving of furniture (including "banishing" to upstairs).

I also know I won't look into the corners of rooms when we arrive in about 3 weeks time ;-)


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 3 Dec 2017 11:17

Our eldest has a birthday approx. a week before Christmas Day. We used to put the tree & decorations up a couple of days before then. The beginning of the month seems much too soon.


SylviaInCanada Report 3 Dec 2017 20:14

A group my OH belonged to had a Christmas dinner in the week before Christmas that was attractive to both parents with children (Santa Claus and his elves visited) and to older folk (excellent food).

That was the start of our Christmas ............ the tree was bought and decorated over the following weekend. Everything came down, packed away, etc on the evening of Twelfth Night.
