Default Christmas Tree Watch 2010

Shops are beginning to fill with Christmas items... the first TV adverts with sleighbells and snowflakes have started appearing... but who will be first to spot Real Christmas Decorations at a private house? Surely it can only be any day now?

Karma to the first posted pic of real 2010 house Christmas decorations!

Damn, private houses only?? The local fancy dress town has had it's decorations up and lit since last week. Does that count for anything?

Swiss Chalet has the "festive special" on the menu already. I was tempted, but I agree with Tangram that Rememberance day should be past at least before getting into the Festive season. I think my Santa Clause parade season starts on the 19th Nov, but there might be one before then

"Proper" thanksgiving, not "local" thanksgiving presumably.

I've got my small artificial tree up in the flat - the missus got it out from under the stairs at the same time as putting Halloween stuff away. No pictures though

Haven't 'turned the lights on' yet though, other than to test them. Have already got a christmas present though to give to the lady's mum - the earliest I've ever possesed such an item!

Starbucks in downtown TO this morning, had decorated Christmas stockings on the wall, and staff dressed in either elf or santa fancy dress outfits. Wrong. So very wrong

My girls were trick-or-treating on Sunday and one of the houses in our road is fully decorated with candy canes going up the stairs and a tree up.

(Sorry, no photos).

Wrong!
