Usually the day after Halloween for me
We took the kids to a Christmas parade recently, that got them all pumped for the season for sure. We bought a bundle of evergreen trimmings to make our own front door decoration with this year instead of a wreath, it's pretty slick looking. There was leftover branches, so my younger kid, in full Christmas mode post-parade, decided to trim them down and made a really nice "branches bouquet" and put it in a vase. And hung a few leftover balls and a short length of garland on it. It's pretty, I'll have to post a picture of it
