Just because the Christmas season seems to get earlier and earlier we now have to be anti-boob?   :-\

It's ALWAYS the season for that! lol

I'm good with all things other than putting up my Christmas lights.  I was going to put them up back in October when it was warm, but I thought about you Matt so I waited.  I put them up last weekend, which is still too early by this edict but **** it.  It was cold and windy when I did it last weekend and thank goodness because it snowed three inches last night.  I'd like to wait, really I would, but it's too ******* cold where I live.  Next year they go on the house in October.  At least anything that requires a ladder or me climbing on the roof.

I see Matt also frequents Reddit. :-* Expect that pic to be all over Facebook in a week.

And FWIW I got a membership to Costco in early October and they had Christmas stuff out then.

Well if you move Christmas into October, you can have a great Nightmare before Christmas display to scare all of the trick or treaters. Besides, your Halloween tree is up already. Why take it down and put it back up in a few weeks?

I saw some workmen putting up Christmas lights in midtown Manhattan last month, at least a week before Halloween.  I had to restrain myself from yelling at them to just knock it the f*ck off, and let it be fall for the time being.

We're about a month behind you weather wise, but yeah.  Early is better.  This past weekend about half of the new neighborhood was out either measuring their new house for lights or putting them up.  I'm still in the pre-planning stage, but hope they go up this week.

And FWIW I got a membership to Costco in early October and they had Christmas stuff out then.

FWIW, I have a membership to Costco and I bought some of their Christmas stuff in late October.   :-[ 

We recycled our 12-year old outdoor lights when we moved (they were on their last legs anyway), so I picked up brand new LED outdoor lights for the new house...  :P
