I interviewed about 15 people around my neighborhood, a few of which were from school, about when they decorate for Christmas. Here’s what I came up with.
The majority of people decorate after Thanksgiving as a family tradition, Bobby, my next door neighbor says, “It’s a family tradition, a week or so after Thanksgiving my family and I get together and decorate.”
Other people decorate after Halloween, such as Mrs. Violet and her family, “We decorate after Halloween because we aren’t here for Thanksgiving so what’s the point? Plus, I love Christmas.”
Other people decorate weeks prior to Christmas, my family is an example. My grandma says, “We’re busy people, yes I love Christmas but sometimes we just don’t have the time.”
A very very small amount of people doesn’t decorate at all for Christmas, such as Mr. Leon. He says, “I don’t have the time like I used to, these old bones can’t do much no more.”
