Time for the great Christmas tree debate?

SALT LAKE CITY — You may roll your eyes if you see your neighbor putting up their Christmas tree. But, is it really too early to put up a Christmas tree?
According to Fox News from 2019, 43% of Americans think putting up holiday décor the day after Halloween is acceptable.
A spirited debate is happening on the Weber/Davis County mom’s Facebook page. Responses for and against are neck and neck.
Victoria Hall from Ogden said she’s not a fan of the holiday getting pushed earlier and earlier every year. She won’t put up her Christmas décor until after Thanksgiving.
“Kind of a little pushback in my own way against retail [that are] putting Christmas stuff out in October, September.”
However, some Facebook users said they are setting up early because they can use some extra cheer this year. And some people are saying it helps them with seasonal depression.
Perhaps it’s time to move on to a new debate: real or artificial trees?
- Fire officials warn residents to avoid dry Christmas trees
- Upcoming holiday season will see overspending and more credit card usage
- Thanksgiving dinner will cost 20% more this year because of inflation
