Should you celebrate Christmas before Thanksgiving?

As soon as November hits, stores start playing Christmas music and Starbucks starts serving holiday-themed beverages in holiday-themed cups. For some, as soon as Halloween passes, the Christmas season has officially begun. If it's the best time of year, it should be enjoyed for as long as possible. Others groan when they hear "Jingle Bells" before Thanksgiving; each holiday deserves it's respective build-up. What do you think?

There's no need to limit Christmas celebration to 25 days in December. With Christmas comes nostalgic movies and music, cookies and quite possibly the best decorations of all time. If you want to adorn your home with twinkly lights and ornaments on Nov. 1, nothing should stop you! 

Note the date:

No. Just no. Halloween has October, Thanksgiving has November, and Christmas has December. Thanksgiving should not get stuck sharing the spotlight with it's cooler older brother–it deserves its own time to shine. 

Thanksgiving arrives at the peak of fall; the leaves are changing and the air is still crisp. Celebrating Christmas in November is like putting ketchup on ice cream. It just doesn't go.

Thanksgiving will be fine. It doesn't need to be coddled by the kill-joys out there. It's true that Thanksgiving is the gateway to peak Christmas celebration, but the two coexist in harmony. If your Thanksgiving celebration does not involve a nearby Christmas tree, you're doing something wrong.

Celebrating Christmas early dilutes the magic of the season. There is such a thing as having too much of a good thing, and Christmas should never be one of them.

The only thing better than a pumpkin spice latte is a peppermint mocha. Starbucks makes dreams come true by offering the latter in early November. You can't wait for this stuff until December. Bring on the gingerbread cookies, evergreen candles and hot chocolate.

Early Christmas decorations are yet another strategy for stores to commercialize the Christmas season. Why wouldn't Starbucks want to lure you into purchasing a slightly-disgusting Caramel Brulée Latte when you would never think of doing so any other month of the year? 

Stores should take note of institutions that still have integrity. It seems Nordstrom may be the only one left.
