How early is too early to put up Christmas decor?

Don't skip out on Thanksgiving

The roughly monthlong period between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day is just not enough time to properly celebrate - and not just because Christmas music is the greatest genre ever. For some, it's getting close to graduation, and for others it's time to work extra hard to ace finals and pass those critical classes. "So, I think they're more excited about the holiday in which they get presents as opposed to the holiday in which they don't [Thanksgiving]". Most of the controversy centered on the fact that the cups removed religious symbols of Christmas in favor of a "holiday spirit" - something many would claim is part of a larger "war on Christmas".

Honestly, celebrate how you want. "I wanted to tell you because I haven't told you in a while". Don't be afraid to go all out. Working retail during the holidays means that you are lucky if you have Thanksgiving Day off, and more than likely can't go anywhere more than an hour's drive away if you know you have a brutal Black Friday weekend ahead. Do whatever you need to create the ideal Thanksgiving setting. Around the time when school starts really crunching without cease just happens to also be the time when working in retail is the most exhausting.

The decorations are out, the lines are packed and the Christmas music is already playing.

Gather up a bunch of your friends and do some DIY activities that cater towards the holidays.

A Christmas tree has been placed along the sidewalk on College Ave. The sky is the limit when it comes to making your own decorations, and you can have your own personalized ones as well. According to The Odyssey Online, Christmas and Thanksgiving music all have a certain tune that will make you think of the holidays. Fifteen percent said Halloween is a good threshold, and 18% said Christmas music should never be played at all.

Don't skip out on Thanksgiving

After experiencing two holiday seasons as a full-time student, I have nothing but awe for those who have gone longer while trying to pay for everything and finish their homework. Even in a year, I have changed for the better.

Many students have to go home to visit family, but can't due to their job.

Jackie Krevis agreed that we should jump right into the holidays. There's little to no exclusive Thanksgiving music, no tradition of gift-giving and it certainly isn't a cross-cultural holiday. The warm atmosphere and familiar company will put you in the mood to have a happy holiday season.

There are plenty of other ways to get into the holiday spirt. I hear people every year groan over holiday cheer unless it's within the strict confines of December. Remember that it won't always be like this- you will find something better, don't be afraid to lean on someone for help, even a co-worker.
