When is it time for Christmas decorations?
It's that time of the year again: the holidays are just around the corner. That means it's time to decorate your home with Christmas lights. A burning question that many ask themselves every year is: when is it allowed to put up the Christmas tree? Opinions are, of course, divided on this. That's why we're laying out all the considerations for you.
The sooner, the better
Some people immediately immerse themselves in the Christmas spirit as soon as the first autumn leaves fall. Completely understandable! Because how nice is it to experience the warmth and magic of the holidays for as long as possible? The sparkling lights as you arrive in the evening and all the colorful ornaments immediately put you in the Christmas mood. Relaxing on the couch or around the dining table with the family surrounded by all the beauty that this festive period has to offer. Who wouldn't want that?
The traditional waiting time
On the question of when to start with Christmas decorations, others answer completely differently. Many people stick to the traditional waiting time until after Sinterklaas (a Dutch holiday celebrated on December 5th). This way, one celebration doesn't overshadow the other. An additional advantage: you now have all the time to start orienting yourself! Browse Pinterest for the most beautiful inspiration, visit Christmas shows in garden centers, and let yourself be inspired. Especially if you have younger children, it's fun to be able to enjoy both celebrations. That's the winter season at its best!
Our tip: start indoors and finish outdoors
Decorating the inside of your home for the holidays can, of course, happen a bit earlier. This way, you have all the time to enjoy the magic of this atmospheric period. From small ornaments to a richly decorated Christmas tree, the choice is entirely yours. Once December 5th has passed, you can really go all out. How about a lit Christmas tree in the window or at the door? But don't forget your front and backyard either! How fun is it to see a sparkling LED Christmas tree in your garden every day as you look outside? Not only enjoyable for yourself but also for the neighborhood. This way, everyone immediately gets into the Christmas spirit.
In short, there is no established rule for when to start your Christmas decorations and Christmas tree. The timing depends on your preferences and circumstances. Whether you start in November or December, the most important thing is to enjoy the magic of the holidays!
