Christmas Before Thanksgiving

Rachel Habing | FEATURES EDITOR

Months before the holidays, stores play Christmas music and look like winter wonder lands with Christmas displays. There are even radio stations that play holiday tunes all year long.  For stores to have holiday products and décor ready for black Friday, they have to go Christmas crazy before Thanksgiving.  The holiday season is a big selling time for most stores, and the earlier they display Christmas products on shelves, the longer that selling time is. Many people also decorate their homes for Christmas before Thanksgiving.

When is the right time to start decorating for the holidays?  Junior Jenny Hartman said, “I think the day after Thanksgiving is when it becomes socially acceptable to decorate for Christmas because there are no other holidays to get in the way.” Taking time to pause and feel gratitude during Thanksgiving break is important before the rush of the Christmas shopping season.  Junior Robin Oetting said, “I get why stores decorate really early but I wouldn’t decorate my house for the holidays before Thanksgiving.”
