In my last post, I asked when the "right" time is to decorate for the holidays. Last week's poll tackled the same question.
For me, the festive season is all about going full throttle on the last few days before Christmas. It's a family tradition, and I think it makes the holiday - and all the trappings - seem more special.

Mid-December was the second most popular time, with 14 per cent, while 10 per cent start in mid to late November. Eight per cent of the voters are holiday enthusiasts, starting before the second week of November!
