Poll: Is Christmas Here Too Soon?

Reston Town Center Christmas Tree 2014

Crews were busy at Reston Town Center on Tuesday putting up and decorating the giant Christmas tree that will remain in front of the Mercury Fountain until January.

Tuesday was Nov. 11, Veterans Day.

Is early November too soon to start decking the halls? Some of us have not even put away the Jack O’Lanterns from Halloween yet.

Meanwhile, official holiday events will kick off at Reston Town Center on their typical schedule, beginning the day after Thanksgiving with the Holidays Are Here! celebration.

Events for Nov. 28 include the kids Gingerbread Mile Run; the holiday parade; visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus; the tree lighting; and more. Visit Reston Town Center’s website and future Reston Now stories for more information.

    Since the holiday parade is the day after TG and we don’t want workers putting the tree up on TG, they can put it up the day before TG or – at the earliest – the weekend before TG. This is WAY too early, and it’s usually up until sometime in January. Nearly 2 months for Christmas is pushing it, especially for the MANY residents of this area who celebrate other winter holidays (or none).

    If it is freezing tonight then it is time for Christmas. 🙂
    In the meantime the ice rink was a puddle of water today.

    I remember in previous years that I was disdainful because the stores all had their Christmas stuff up instantly after Thanksgiving. And now it’s even sooner! Hey, let’s start pushing Christmas stuff right after Labor Day!
