Christmas Trees
Started by: peter g (2059)  Report abuse
I saw two Christmas trees in houses last night. It'a a bit early isn't it I'd be sick of the sight of it by Christmas. Second week in December is early enough for us. What do you think?

It'll be dead by Christmas, brown with all the needles on carpet and it'll serve em reet

I think we've gone a tad over the top this year.

Can't wait for those cheesy Christmas tunes being played over the Tannoy in stores.

it's too early! children should feel excited about Christmas and putting up the tree is part of that, if the tree is say there for 7 weeks it just fades into the background and that excitement is lost.

what really annoys me are the houses with the icicle lights hanging there all year because they can't be bothered to take them down

Couldn't agree more about the Christmas Icicle lights left up all year(how lazy can you get....) Also about Christmas trees being put up in November.For years I always used to put ours up around 22nd December, but even now it's no earlier than 14th December.

Mine goes up one week before Christmas - down one week after new year.

My lights will go up next week and probably be there until Easter!!!! Not lazy, it's just too cold to climb aluminium ladders to mess on aluminium gutters in the in between period. No light up reindeers in the garden either as it was May before I got them out last year.

Two weeks before Christmas, no sooner.

If we had icicle lights (which we wouldn't) I'd be tempted to leave them in situ, not being lazy I just wouldn't like every year to have to hitch and unhitch them 25 feet up using a ladder, not too bad on a bungalow, but not a tall house with a freezing east wind blowing up your pants legs.

It's got too Americanised now, like how Halloween has become. The houses on Beech Hill Avenue and Scot Lane will soon be having their grand switch on, wonder if the mini-bus Christmas lights tours will be on again.
