The hype for Halloween is now over, no more trick or treats or costume themed party. Does it mean is time to get out the Christmas decorations or we are getting way ahead of ourselves?
I have always been the kind of person who is obsessed with Christmas. I’ve watched every Christmas film ever made, I have a Christmas playlist on my phone and I’m the proud owner of many Christmas sweaters, with bells and incorporated lights.
Yes, my name is Martina and I’m a Christmas-holic.
There are two kinds of people in the world, people that start celebrating Christmas in December and people that start listening to Michael Buble’s Christmas album from the first of November. I think I made pretty clear which kind of person I am. But what’s the right time for you to start singing All I Want for Christmas is You?
Before we start our investigation, we need to take in consideration another category of Christmas fans. I’m talking about hard core Christmas addicted people, that start as soon as the end of September. They get ahead of their Christmas shopping, months before the joyful event and in October they decorate their house with Halloween trees (exactly like a Christmas one, just spookier).
That’s too much even for me.
If you are not part of any of these categories and you are looking for the right time to decorate you Christmas tree, the ideal time is after Bonfire night (November 5) or the beginning of December. I asked around campus and it seems as this is the “acceptable time” to start the Christmas excitement.
The truth is, that no matter when you feel it’s the right time for you to watch Home Alone and wear Christmas sweaters, own it and have fun!
In the meantime, I’ll be listening to Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, from now till the beginning of January.
