I’m proud of my family, they waited until yesterday to start putting up decorations. We respect November in my family.
This is one of the things that makes me read Commissioned Comic, O´ is really proud about the things he believes and he points out his view every fucking year, that´s awesome!
My family respects november, but yesterday they already started.
We usually don’t decorate at all with the exception of the tree.
I NEVER disrespect november. I decorate my home somwhere between 22-24 december. The decorations stay on till march, but that’s another issue
I would really prefer folks wait until after my birthday (11/29) but really, after Thanksgiving at least. These stations playing Christmas Music on Nov 1 are just…so disrespectful. Put the lights up when it’s warm…sure (posting from New York)… but don’t turn ‘em on!
I put spikes on my roof to keep that fat red bastard away. No one’s stealing my cookies.
Nope. November hates my Roommate. She put the tree up on November 1st. I still have the Halloween lights up on our porch.
we still haven’t put up any decorations, we will probably do so sometime in November, maybe January, who knows. In Sydney the have had signs up for at least a month saying happy christmas, I mean, HAPPY christmas, it’s just not right. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, that’s how it goes, and in December, as O says. I myself am an atheist but still celebrate the holidays, Saturnalia is a good one, can’t stand fanatics who tell me I can’t celebrate because I’m not christian, those holiday stealing bastards. We got drunk and overate and pathetically hit on girls who ignored us long before christ came, and we’ll get drunk and overeat and pathetically hit on girls who ignore us long after christ has left the party.
fe de erratas- sorry, meant sometime in December, not november,
Absolutely no disrespect here. We barely decorate the house anyway, and I didn’t even start to think about x-mas presents before a week ago, and only yesterday went to shop for materials the first time.
I have a few thoughts though, about things that many people like to associate with christmas yet indulge in them far too early to be considered such. First, the lights: if they are somewhat normal, pretty lights (no santa-look-alikes and such kitch) then it’s wholly ok to put them out as soon as the days get darker – especially here in the north, where it REALLY gets dark. Just don’t call them christmas lights and everything’s fine.
Second, the hot drinks: you know, mulled wine/cider, glühwein, (glögi, here in Finland) etc what people call them. Some consider those an aspect of the holiday season, I think they are more of a _winter_season thing. Because below zero temperatures tend to chill your bones and a hot drink is the best remedy.
What other things you people consider “wrongly associated” with christmas?
What I hate is when they start putting Christmas sweets in the shops at the end of August. I mean, really – end of August? Have you no shame? (One year, we had a blasting heat wave in September, and all the chocolate santas melted in the shops. Serve em right.)
