As Crystal Lake and Cary shoppers headed to the store for Halloween candy in October, they were met with a now-familiar sight: holiday decorations.
Christmas trees, lights, blow-up Menorahs, Santas riding motorcycles and manger scenes line the aisles already at Home Depot, Target, Walmart and other stores.
So when it comes to your holiday decorations, how soon do you start?
Does your tree goes up while the jack-o-lanterns are still on the porch?
Do you stick to the "nothing-until-after-Thanksgiving rule?"
Do you hang the outdoor lights when it's warm, and wait to turn them on the day after Thanksgiving?
Or, are you one of those people who like to put up the Christmas tree, wreaths and outdoor decorations to make your home more inviting to Thanksgiving guests?
Tell us: When will you decorate for the holidays?
