My DD (3) has had a terrible bug, a horrible time having to leave nursery, and now has been struck down with a miserable cold!

Asking her what she wants and the answer is 'Christmas'.

Is this madness? wink

Pancakeflipper Sun 17-Nov-13 11:48:47

Yes. Bah humbug.

Personally I love Christmas but its my idea of hell to decorate in November.

Chopchopbusybusy Sun 17-Nov-13 11:50:23

It's mid November!

BearsBeetsBattlestarGalactica Sun 17-Nov-13 11:51:31

Totally cray cray

I'm sorry but I think mid November is total madness, at least wait till 1sr December.

Pancakeflipper Sun 17-Nov-13 11:54:48

Make some decorations or Christmas cards?

ThreeMyselfAndI Sun 17-Nov-13 11:55:38

I've seen a few crazy people with their decorations up. Go for it she's had a crap time lately if it will cheer her up why not.

Aww enjoy hope little gets week soon

Aquariusgirl86 Sun 17-Nov-13 11:58:22

Far too early for my liking but if you can make her happy why not grin

Yes it is madness. You can call me an old grump, but why not try and keep Christmas really exciting and special by restricting it to a couple of weeks of the year?

However, if you have already told her that you are going to put the decorations up then you can't disappoint her by changing your mind.

Oh dear.

I adore Christmas but I draw the line at tree/decorations in December!

I'd second making decorations or cards. Or Christmas DVD and hot chocolate with marshmallows grin

Funkybutnot Sun 17-Nov-13 12:01:41

Awe go for it! She deserves it.

fuzzpig Sun 17-Nov-13 12:13:08

Ah bless her. I wouldn't put the tree up this early - it will be very hard for her to understand why it will still be more than a month (eternity to a young child!) til the big day, and may lead to more upset.

Love the idea of making cards or decorations, then when done you can put them away and it'll be exciting all over again when you get them back out to decorate!

NannyPlumForPM Sun 17-Nov-13 13:29:29

Iv already started decorations grin but it takes me a month to put them up!

LumpySpacePrincessOhMyGlob Sun 17-Nov-13 13:33:54

God no way. I love chrismas and my tree goes up on the 1 st of December but they have no place in November.

decorate her bedroom maybe? then you don't have to look at it for the rest of november

Pollywallywinkles Sun 17-Nov-13 13:42:19

Absolute madness. You will be fed up of it all before Christmas. 1 December is early enough (far to early for me though).

YoureBeingASillyBilly Sun 17-Nov-13 13:46:14

Why do people do this? Surely they sicken themselves of everything christmassy by the time xmas comes?

No, it's silly, Christmas is for Christmas surely? Poor thing will be totally wound up for nothing apart from a long wait.

caketinrosie Sun 17-Nov-13 14:01:18

Do it! I love christmas! I would put my decs up in July if I wasn't concerned about being sectioned! grin But a good compromise is just decorating DDs room. That's a thought....I wonder if DH would mind if I....

usualsuspect Sun 17-Nov-13 14:02:21

Go for it.

Anything that cheers your DD up is a good thing.

sooperdooper Sun 17-Nov-13 14:05:30

Far too early, make some decorations or cards instead

Of course it's madness - it's insane and I would Judge You Horribly tbh. Make some Christmas cards instead, or make her some warm Ribena and tell her it's what Santa drinks.

I hope she feels better soon but please don't put the tree up, you loon!

usualsuspect Sun 17-Nov-13 14:22:45

Would you care if people judged you for putting Xmas decorations up in your own house?

Especially internet random.

OP, it's your house to do as you please with.

Do it if it makes her happy.

NannyPlum how on earth does it take a month to put up your decorations. I can redecorate my house in that time. shock
