When To Put Up Holiday Decorations
Holiday decorations, particularly for this time of year, and between holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years, should be put up before the designated holiday, and not before the holidays that come before it, or any holidays, regardless of the timeframe between it, and other holidays that fall near them, and, or around the same day as them.
It is too early for Christmas decorations to be put up when it hasn’t even been, and Thanksgiving hasn’t even happened yet, but which is coming up this week, particularly this Thursday Nov. 23, 2017.
In terms of decorations being too early for holidays like Christmas, the same is true, and goes for Hanukkah, and other holidays like the celebration of Kwanzaa.
However, it is completely understandable, and some people may think that putting holiday decorations up for, and before a specific holiday, is ok to do, is something they prefer to do, and that Thanksgiving is not a religious and, or culture-related, and culturally-related holiday, but an overall holiday so-to-speak so they put up their Christmas, Hanukkah, and, or Kwanzaa decorations before Thanksgiving respectively so-to-speak, and whichever holiday they may celebrate, and their culture they may be a part of.
This time of year is also unique because lots of, and several holidays fall on, or before, and after each other as previously mentioned in this story.
Thanksgiving comes before Hanukkah, and both holidays come before the holidays of Christmas, and celebration of Kwanzaa. Halloween comes before all of the aforementioned holidays though, hence starting the slate of Fall season holiday galore, decor, festivities, observations and celebrations.
For Thanksgiving, people may decorate their homes, and, or offices with Thanksgiving related items like pilgrims, and non-edible Turkeys, also known as Turkey centerpieces,, for the purpose of decorating for the holiday of course. Some decorators put out decorations that they use for the occasion every year, or buy new ones from party supply stores like Party City annually for the purpose, depending on what they want, and need to do for the holiday, and, or holidays that they are decorating for.
Holiday decoration displays may be small in size, and, or some may be more extravagant than others with decorations like enlarged, and life-sized candy canes, Santa Clauses, Christmas Trees, and even snowmen all of which are for the Christmas holiday.
For Hanukah, which may also be the same scenario, decorators for this particular holiday may put out items like Menorahs with eight candles representing the eight days of the holiday, and Dreidals with some letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
For Kwanzaa, there are also tall, and long, red, and green candles that people who celebrate the holiday can display, and along with posters, put around their abodes, houses, condominiums, apartments or wherever they may live, and lay their heads down at night, that show the seven principles, or the Nguzo Saba, of the holiday.
Halloween decorations might consist of ghosts, goblins and also pumpkins, a squash plant of which is very fitting for the next holiday, a few weeks after it, of Thanksgiving, which also happens to be this week on Thursday Nov. 23, 2017 as previously mentioned in this story, and is a time when people who celebrate it may enjoy pumpkins, and even make it, and, or them, depending on how many they use, into a pie, or pies, depending on how many they make, called pumpkin pie generally speaking, a favorite dessert at the holiday if a host of a Thanksgiving Dinner is making, it, or made it, or a guest to a Thanksgiving Dinner has made it, and brought it to the table to share with others.
And it is also way too early to put decorations up for Easter, Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, St. Patrick’s Day, Memorial Day, and The Fourth of July, also known as July 4th, and all of the other holidays that may, or, may not have holiday decorations associated with them, so it is good, and important to wait until at least four weeks before the, and, a holiday, and not four weeks before a holiday, if a holiday precedes one like the ones mentioned at the beginning of this story do depending on the situation, and unless decorators like to keep decorations for certain holidays up year-round like Christmas, and the holiday’s Christmas lights sometimes are.
