How Long Should You Really Keep Up Your Holiday Decorations?

Alright, so I’ll be up front here: I grew up in a household that had its Christmas decorations up before Thanksgiving and after New Year’s. Now that that’s out of the way, I can explain a little more about the timing of things regarding winter holiday decorations.

My mom never had too much Halloween stuff up in October, but rather would opt to have fall-themed decorations up. So, in a way, I always looked at her decorations as a way to match the season and not just the holiday. She’d typically transition from fall decorations to winter (which coincides with Christmas, I know) around the second week of November. A lot of people find this to be off putting for some reason, as if Christmas decorations should not be up before Thanksgiving.

I think those people are silly.

For some reason, people are cool with autumn decor being up in the middle of September (a month and a half before Halloween) all the way through the end of November (a month after Halloween), yet the same rule doesn’t apply for winter decorations. There’s this tight window of sorts for winter holiday decor where before Thanksgiving is too early and after New Year’s is too late.

Again, I think it all depends on the season itself. Where I’m from, winter lasts from early November all the way through March. Now I’m not saying Christmas decorations should be up at the start of spring, but lasting throughout November and January seems perfectly reasonable, especially if most of your decor is evergreen garland, wreaths, and whatnot. Sleds, mittens, greenery, woodland creatures, and rustic and wooden items all greatly accentuate a house during the winter, whether you’re celebrating Christmas or not.

This is how I see it, at least. The problem is, so many people love to associate winter decor and winter items with Christmas because Christmas is such an integral holiday to American culture. If people could take a step back and see what things actually are associated with Christmas (such as the tree itself and nativity sets), they’d realize people who put decorations up “early” and leave them up late into January aren’t crazy at all. They’re just consistent with their seasons.

Note: Certain parts of the States don’t experience the snow and cold weather that the midwest, north, and eastern states do, so perhaps they’re not wrong to think winter decorations are weird in any other month besides December.
