Seems to have gone from sticking a pumpkin in the window for Halloween or hanging some decorations on the tree at Christmas to themed duvets, cushions, mugs and outfits for pets etc. I know I don't have to join in and I don't, but I just think it's pretty rubbish environmentally.

OP posts:

Am I being unreasonable?

We have a lot of Christmas decorations but they're reused every single year. We also have Christmas bedding but again it's used as bedding so no different to any other bedding tbh. I will be buying a new tree this year as we've had an extension and I'd like a slim one to go in there.

We have a few ceramic pumpkins and some leaf fairy lights but that's it for Halloween.

We'll carve pumpkins nearer the time, usually one each.

I have lots of Christmas decorations that I’ve bought over many years, as well as bedding and cushions. I also have Halloween decorations, though not as many. They make me happy and I will continue to use them for many years to come, hopefully. They give me pleasure and evoke happy memories.

If you think that is bad OP I would steer well clear of the Christmas threads.

Just had a mooch on there and the amount of shite that people have bought already is so, so depressing.

This poor planet is well and truly fucked.😥

I don't think a Christmas mug is unreasonable or new. I had mine in 1999 and still have it when I visit family at Christmas.

Kermit it's so hard to tell really..

The first 5 year's of my DC life everything was second hand including push chair, clothes, new stuff at all really.

So buying some new stuff for Xmas I reckon I've got some points saved up!

We also don't drive gas guzzler huge massive cars!
