When it comes to decking the halls and putting the Christmas tree up, many people have their own preferred way of doing so.
Some might like to get theirs up as soon as they feel a chill in the air, while others will hold off until December 1 rolls around.
And while we won’t judge you either way, it seems like there are plenty of people out there who take this incredibly seriously and won’t hold back their thoughts.
A number of parents have taken to Mumsnet to respond to a post asking if November 25 was too early to put up a tree.
Many people were quick to brand those who put their tree up before December “tacky” and “vulgar”.
One person said: “Ridiculously too early! Were you born in a barn?”
Another went as far as to claim putting the tree up early should be ‘illegal’.
They wrote: “NOT before December 1st. We need laws. Including the death penalty for shops who put Xmas stuff out in September.”
A third commented: “No it’s stupidly, embarrassingly early.”
Someone else branded the idea of putting the decorations up before December “ludicrous”.
Others weren’t too bothered by the whole thing and encouraged the original poster to do whatever she liked in her own house.
However, with some people, it seems you simply cannot win.
A few users confessed they refused to put their trees up until the weekend before Christmas, with some even saying they waited right up until the night before.
“Trees up this early is so tacky! Don’t do it. Christmas Eve to Twelfth Night. Anything else is a bit vulgar really,” proclaimed one mum.
A second thought mid-December was the right time to do it, saying: “25th November is insanely early too! 15th December is the earliest it should go up. Down on the 6th of January.”
These people were also slammed and risked being referred to as The Grinch for waiting so long to get into the festive spirit.
So it looks like you’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t… you might as well just go ahead and do it anyway. It’s been a heck of a year, you deserve a little sparkle in your life!
