If you follow me on Facebook, you might know that I’ve been working on a project that involves this semi-horrible, thrifted, two foot wedding candelabra:
You might also know that this project is part of a series of things I’ve been working on for Halloween…Yes, you heard me right, Halloween. I’ve actually been collecting things (like my candelabra) since late July.
I felt really good about it all until someone questioned my dedication to a holiday that’s still two months away. I’ve been stewing over the issue all week.
Then I thought, if I can leave my Fourth of July wreath up through the end of August, surely I can plan for Halloween in August too…
I am also justifying my madness with the knowledge that Utahns spend more money on Halloween than any other state in the nation. Additionally, I saw Christmas decor in Hobby Lobby over a month ago. What can I say, I am a product of my surroundings?!?
Our conversation progressed and basically I came to the conclusion that if Amy and Jen can put up Halloween, then it’s totally okay for me to be thinking about it, right? RIGHT?
I am not going to name names here, but about 15 min. after this conversation, I saw two other girls talking Christmas.
I am comfortable with my decision to create, not display Halloween decor for now, but I am wondering how early is too early to start planning for holidays? Do you decorate for Halloween? When do you start thinking about Christmas?
