I respect your opinion, and I would appreciate the same courtesy. That was the time I had to do it, so I did. This is the best time of year and I would hate to put my decorations up only to turn right around and take them down, I like to enjoy them when the spirit of the season hits me, and it hit me last weekend, and everytime I walk past my tree it makes me smile, everyone needs a little added happiness this day in time. I do not put any outside, just a wreath on the door, so it's very tasteful.
Yes, ditto!! Right there with you!

Maybe I'm being unkind, but I just don't understand how people are glorifying Christ's birth by having "Winnie the Pooh" stand solemnly (but grinning) beside Jesus's manger, while an inflated "Frosty the Snowman" beams and looms in the background near the 3 Wise Men.
It's like an acid trip...
It's not my style but for some people, they like that type of stuff?
Some guys like guys, some guys like women. It's what ever floats your boat. My kids are nearly grown, so they too would only laugh if I had things such as that. Human nature, but as for myself I would at least try to respect someone for their choices.

Hey, by the way, aren't you the dude that preaches about peace and love all over topix? So much for your love thy neighbor (even if he is different) speech!
Hey, by the way, I am the dude that preaches about peace and love. I didn't say that I was going to go over to their house and kick down their decorations and beat the hell out of them. Plus, I didn't say that I hated my neighbor. I just don't care for the way that they mix Christ's birth with Disney characters and Frosty the Snowman.

Just for future reference, a person can have an opinion about people without breaking Christ's commandments. It's when you act against them--it's when you actively hate someone. Those are sins.

Do you people ever think before you start typing or do you just see a comment and start running off at the fingers (mouth)?

It's hard to take your comment seriously when there have been people on here talking about killing gays, burning them, wishing for their death. And then you compare them to me for having an opinion about how someone decorates their yard. Give me a break!

I agree that people should be thankful daily. I agree that peoples opinions differ. I do take exception to " when the spirit hit me" though. If the "spirit hit you" in the middle of the summer would you put up your Christmas decorations? What I am talking about is the near total skipping of another important holiday in favor of the " biggest" holiday of the year. Thanksgiving used to mean something. Thanksgiving used to be nearly as exciting as Christmas. I can remember making the best Thanksgiving decorations in grade school. The apple turkey using toothpicks for legs, and toothpicks loaded with dyed marshmallows for a tail. I also remember making the outline of my hand as the turkey's body and head, and filling in it's tail with cut out construction paper, as well as the wattle under it's neck. We glued this whole mess together and proudly took it home to mom and dad. Excitement of having the whole extended family over was high. After stuffing ourselves with all the wonderful food , the women would separate themselves and the men and kids would go deer hunting. Thanksgiving has been thrown aside. Christmas is the thing... decorate those yards... make a bigger statement than your neighbors... win that coveted prize from the paper.... make it gaudy, make it big, make it stand out.

Yeah well people should remember the birth of Christ everyday. But the holiday Christmas itself is ANNOYING as hell. Jesus wasn't even born in December. The holiday is only celebrated in December because the Catholics were too busy allowing the pagans to find their own way to Christianity so they went and beat it into them. Either way decorating this early is STUPID! 98% of the decorations you put up aren't even relevant to Jesus.

My neighbors have some of the most tacky Christmas decorations in their yard. If it flashes, inflates, or just sits there sucking up electricity, they have it covering their yard. It borders on blasphemous.
They have a kind of nice looking, lighted Nativity scene. But they've also got "Frosty the Snowman", Santa Clause, and various Disney characters in attendance to Christ's birth. They're all just standing around looking at the Baby Jesus!
Oh, and they put it up last week--WAY TOO EARLY for Christmas!
Liberal to the core. Your way or it's wrong. LOL. You left-wingers are soooooooooooooo predictable. The funniest part you preach about being inclusive and live and let live --- what a farce.

I'm Jewish, it's the way I was raised therefore I don't celebrate the holiday but I personally enjoy the decorations and I respect others beliefs (or lack thereof). And this is America, so I suppose everyone has the right to decorate whenever they so chose. Why judge?(-:

I can't control what my parents do as I am only 4 years old but, I love all the blow up rain deer and waving santas in our yard. My brother and I wanted them put up early so my parents got a head start and turned the lights on a week before Thanksgiving. Aren't my parents smart!
Screw the neighbors... Right! It all about what "we" want!!!!

Is anyone else disgusted by the near skipping of our Thanksgiving holiday by people in a rush to get Christmas decorations up and displayed on their houses and yards? Our holidays used to mean something and be special times that we looked forward to. Commercialization has all but destroyed the magic of them. Driving home from work the other evening, I passed several houses that already have their Christmas decorations up.I personally think it is a shame that Thanksgiving seems to mean so little. Where are the Thanksgiving decorations? Before the haters get on here and say things like "don't look" or "what does it hurt" I am simply stating my opinion to which I am entitled.
These Tennessee retards have always rushed these holidays!
