When did you hang your Christmas lights?

4,000 people were asked when they usually do it, and when people SHOULD start decorating.  This past weekend was a popular answer for both.

23% said they normally put them up in the first week of December.  And most people agree it’s appropriate once December hits.  Only 15% think it’s still too early for decorations.

Of those people, 4% think you should wait until next week . . . 8% said the week before Christmas . . . and 3% don’t think lights should go up until Christmas Day.

Only around 1% put them up in September, and 5% said October.  The most popular month for it is November, with 44% of the vote.  But a lot of those people said LATE November, or right after Thanksgiving.

4% said they leave at least some holiday decorations up year-round.
