POLL: When is the Right Time to Decorate for Christmas in Idaho?
I'll admit, and it isn't really a secret, that I love Christmas. My house is the one on the street that will most years have some Christmas lights still up in August. I also have LED lighting around my house so I can pick colorful lights all year. I turn them green for St. Patrick's Day, pink and red around Valentine's Day, orange and purple at Halloween, and red, white, and blue on patriotic holidays.
My house is easy to find and it makes me happy to see the lights when I am home. When the Christmas season comes around (anytime after Halloween) is when I put up the Christmas exclusive lights.
The Best Reason To Put Up Christmas Decorations Early
Some people may think that Christmas decorations early are silly, dumb, or disrespectful. I like them, but I also have a much more scientific reason for putting it all up a little early. Winter is cold. Seriously, why in the world would you wait until the temperature is single digits, ice on everything, and snow on the ground to climb up a ladder and put up lights? Do it now when you won't freeze.
Worried your decorations will upset your neighbors? You could always try to incorporate them for all seasons like some are doing this year with skeletons.
Whether you decorate now, later, or never - we wish you a merry Christmas!
