Man on the Edge: How Early is Too Early?

This video is no longer available.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  …almost.  But not yet.  There’s still a full day of Thanksgiving season ahead, which we used to decorate with fall colors, some leaves, maybe those little fold-out 3D turkeys.  Or tracings of your hand that you tuned into a turkey picture, remember that?  But those are already up in the attic for some people.

The holiday seasons are getting blurred by a lot of people.  Driving around town, you’re bound to have seen some houses already decked out for Christmas.  Even though a recent poll found that a full 65 percent of people don’t think it’s cool.  But that same poll found a full 25 percent of people want to start the Christmas season as early as they can.  And that means skipping Thanksgiving.

Our Man on the Edge, Robert Wilder, loves every season, but is it okay to put out Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving?
