Decorating for the Holidays

When do you decorate for the holidays? Some families prepare for Christmas before Thanksgiving, and some prepare after.


A poll on Instagram showed the 41/154 people decorate before Thanksgiving, and 113/154 decorate after. When it comes to decorating, many families have traditions for this, and approach is in many different ways.


“My family’s tradition is to decorate on Thanksgiving. We have done this for a long time and it’s something I always look forward to,” said freshman Madi Garvin.


Decorating trees, hanging stockings, and putting up Christmas lights are a huge part of Christmas time, and brings happiness to many people. However, some people get a little too excited when it comes to decorating.


“I wish I could decorate before Thanksgiving, but my mom makes me wait until after Thanksgiving. When I move out I will definitely  be putting my decorations up before,” said senior Lexi Puckett.
