Moonlighting

Ev

I'm not going to rant about how I feel about decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving, but ...... everywhere you look, Christmas decorations are going up.  I'll bet after a very long day wrapping lights around every tree in Mountain Brook, this guy's going to leave the tree lighting at home up to his wife!

Nordstrom's in Scottsdale advertises that they will not put up Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving because they believe in celebrating only one holiday at a time.

I hope that the worker in your photo has received training and is tied off with lanyards and a harness. Working in bucket trucks is a common cause of injuries and OSHA citations.

such a great title for this post. this moonlighter might actually take a great deal of pride in his ability to illuminate the holiday and relish lighting the tree at home.

NYC is a little slow on the uptake tho I bet if I walked up Sixth Avenue I'd see decorations on the street lamps .. Philly, specifically South Philly, was decorated with wreaths and holiday lights .. any second I bet they'll be putting St Pat's decorations up ..

I agree with you. It is always way too early.

I know, really. Busman's holiday if he has to decorate his own house. I don't mind Christmas stuff going up early, but I do mind when it's still around in February.

A nice tribute to each one of the Christmas decorators...

I'll bet you're right. Tho the moon hangs in the sky and the Xmas lights are going up - even before Thanksgiving and more importantly, Advent - Christmas doesn't happen until Dec. 25 and then lasts only 12 days.

I fought these battles for years. Don't care anymore. It's all just plain silly! :-)

Early decorations, in the hope of more bright days to come sooner.
