Christmas decorations

I’ve seen some extreme decorations on my Facebook recently and thought wow people must think we are Scrooge’s as our decorations aren’t up yet (going up this weekend I believe)

Anyone got there’s up yet and wanna show it off with a pic??

Please note there are no prizes available and this isn’t a competition :tongue:


There is a contest at soundcore about that.
Is’nt it better to use Christmas than Xmas? :wink:

We got a little bored between Halloween and Thanksgiving this year and decided to put up our decorations mid-November! :rofl:

Perfect! Thank you!

Oh well, if we’re changing thread names, can you change it to Winter Solstice Pagan Mas? Otherwise known as Yule.

That’s it true original name and the source of all the decoration and traditions.

Christmas is mostly a Victorian era rename bringing in German traditions with Prince Albert, and further embellished via Dickens.

During the UK civil war and the resulting form of Christianity which disapproved of decoration, the Pagan traditions were banned. The English hated that and fought to bring back pagan traditions.

So actually the decoration are primarily pagan.

USA tradition is now just happy holidays and put decoration up around Thanksgiving and keep up til January. This neatly allow for it to cover Jewish festival around the same time.

No we not put up our winter solstice pagan decoration yet.

I can probably make that happen for you here in the near future. My wife had me put decoration out like November 10th. :rofl:

To be fair she did wait a couple of days to turn them on and then we went on vacation to FL. :rofl: I will say that I did turn on the Eufy indoor cam that we placed near the window while we were gone to watch for anybody coming near the house.

Pics will be coming soon…

Yes!!! I love this story!! Definitely a classic!!
