It’s been a debate for many years. People laugh and judge for putting up your Christmas tree before Thanksgiving. People are insulted when you forget about Thanksgiving. There are weird glares from drivers when you are rocking out to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” But, Christmas is so magical and heartwarming for every family we can’t help but celebrate a little early. So, we must ask the question. Is it okay to start celebrating Christmas Early?
Christmas is one of those holidays that everyone can’t get enough of. There are dedicated Christmas stores that are open all year round. Then the mythical story of Santa Clause in the North Pole. Spoiler alert, Santa isn’t real, but the story to all is real. Holding in the magic of being good and being gifted with presents. The magic of Rudolph and the other reindeer. And even the magic of having your whole family around to celebrate a wonderful holiday. That excitement can’t be held in, it needs to be released and not just for December.
December, 31 days but only 25 days to get prepared and celebrate Christmas. That’s not enough time, that’s why people want to celebrate right after Halloween. But, there is a negative viewpoint on this with forgetting Thanksgiving which is another important holiday. Maybe, the appropriate time to start celebrating Christmas is the day after Thanksgiving.
Studies have shown that celebrating Christmas early will make you happier. Putting the Christmas tree up, baking cookies, listening to happy Christmas music puts you in a better mood. It makes sense of wanting to celebrate early because it is a bright and magical holiday that brings a smile to your face. So, wouldn’t you want to be happy and forget about the people who are judging you?
In all honesty, celebrate Christmas whenever you want. You could start celebrating after Halloween, after Thanksgiving, or be that person who leaves up their Christmas tree all year long. There is no judgment. As long as it makes you happy. But, if you disagree with us, we want to bring one example that backs up our point. After Halloween, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts change their menu to Christmas themed. If coffee can celebrate Christmas early, so can we!
