How early is too early to put up Christmas decor?

When's the best time to buy holiday plane tickets

Some other people believe that Thanksgiving is just one of those holidays that seems like a pre-holiday to Christmas, and that's why so many people decide to celebrate earlier.

But Christmas is a holiday much better observed when spread out. Thanksgiving and Christmas are two of the most extravagant holidays, and it's easy to get caught up in their waves of cheerful madness.

Thanksgiving is more than just the ideal picture everyone posts on Instagram.

Shoppers really have nothing to worry about compared to those most at risk this holiday season: retail workers.

Clearly, corporate America already gets it. While my employer claimed that they always work with students' schedules, I worked through one holiday season in which I had to switch a shift seven times in one month because my manager continually scheduled me during a class time.

Even if you don't like peppermint or hot chocolate, this could also mean a more inclusive holiday season. For example, Starbucks receives public criticism for their holiday cups seemingly every year. Last year's controversy was even enough to spark national interest this year in alleged leaked photos of the 2017 holiday cups.

Nothing gets you into the holiday spirit more than festive d├ęcor.

The "Christmas spirit" today has expanded to include a whole range of non-religious traditions that are considered equally as important to the cheer as the story of Jesus' birth - so it might be better to call it the holiday season. Several people said that they have their decorations up, even their Christmas trees and lights around their house.

"I think we should embrace Thanksgiving", Rachel Byer (freshman-animal sciences) said. There's little to no exclusive Thanksgiving music, no tradition of gift-giving and it certainly isn't a cross-cultural holiday.

How soon is too soon to celebrate the holidays? Depending on which holiday you want to decorate for, you can plan how insane you want your decorations to be. 'Tis a fantastic season, and we should spread it out as long as possible.

As Turner told the Tampa Bay Times, he often recommends that retailers blend together holiday music with non-holiday tunes to help customers mix it up and not feel so beaten down by Santa Claus and his eight tiny reindeer.

Friendsgiving - Spending Thanksgiving with your friends can be a great way to avoid the stress of familial gatherings while still enjoying the communal celebration of the holiday. I challenge everyone to make a conscious effort on November 23 to take a few minutes to think about what you're truly grateful for. Some years it's snowy on Halloween yet raining by Christmas - all we know is the weather is unpredictable here.

Jackie Krevis agreed that we should jump right into the holidays.
