Have you seen any homes decorated for Christmas yet? If not it won't be long as people get ready to celebrate the holidays. Our home is decorated for autumn and Thanksgiving and will stay that way until Thanksgiving weekend when we will switch to Christmas. I don't judge on most things, I say "You do you" and it's none of my business how you live, but that's my outlook, just be happy.
