Many peo­ple have had their Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions up for weeks al­ready. How soon is too soon to deck the halls?

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - OPINION -

With all the doom and gloom over Brexit, peo­ple need cheer­ing up. But if you spread Christ­mas over too long a pe­riod, you lose the mean­ing and feel flat when it fi­nally ar­rives.

El­iz­a­beth O’regan, Lin­coln

Putting up dec­o­ra­tions early dilutes the im­pact. It also seems to be a rea­son for re­tail­ers to off­load more tat.

Ron­ald James, An­gus

We never put dec­o­ra­tions up till later as the cat tries to climb the tree and thinks baubles are for play­ing with.

Lorna Smith, North York­shire

I get fed up of my dec­o­ra­tions af­ter a cou­ple of weeks – they are down by Jan­uary 2.

Fiona Reid, For­far

Trees are up for such a short time; it can be nice for chil­dren. If you live alone the at­tic is the best place for it.

Lor­raine An­der­son, Ed­in­burgh

Putting dec­o­ra­tions up be­fore De­cem­ber is far too early.

Mar­garet Brown, Ruther­glen

By the time Christ­mas comes the tree is a bit of a mess. Two weeks be­fore­hand is about right.

Hamil­ton Mclean, Har­wood

I wait till the sec­ond week in De­cem­ber and take them down be­fore Jan­uary 6.

Linda Cox, Aberdeen

I’m al­ready sick to the back teeth of the word “Christ­mas”.

Liz Kelly, Glas­gow

If you have chil­dren, go with the flow!

Carol White­head, Prest­wich

Mid­dle of De­cem­ber is soon enough.

Bob Mitchell, Elder­slie

This is no longer Christ­mas; it is the Amer­i­can­i­sa­tion of our tra­di­tions.

Hugh Mchardy, Keith
