Is it too soon to wear Christmas clothes?
With Halloween ending, we no longer have a large holiday to look forward to, except for Thanksgiving. But in reality, Thanksgiving isn’t as widely celebrated and anticipated as Halloween or Christmas. Think about it, for the whole month of October, porches are decorated with pumpkins, haunted houses are open, and Party City becomes overwhelmingly busy. However, when we think of Thanksgiving, we think of the three-day break we get off of school or work; it’s just not as fun. But, at what point is it appropriate to start dressing to celebrate the Christmas season? People always use the argument: “It’s too soon for Christmas, Thanksgiving comes first!”
Christmas is what makes most people happy in the deep dark months of the winter, and we all know living in Indiana means a head start to the depressing season. Dressing for Christmas a couple weeks early can only benefit positively. Maybe hold off on the super ugly Christmas sweaters, but I see nothing wrong with breaking out fun red and green pajamas, or maybe some Santa socks. I think it would be perfectly reasonable to start wearing the Christmas-inspired sweaters with snowy trees on them. Of course there could be a couple days’ break for the celebration of Thanksgiving, but for the most part, I don’t see the issue. I know that in about a week or so, I’ll be sitting under a warm blanket with my plaid Christmas pajamas on, joyfully watching The Grinch.
