To Decorate or Not To Decorate?

Last year I wrote a little something about how much I love this season - whether or not it actually qualifies as a "season" here in Texas does not matter to me. It is different than summer and winter and spring (for the most part) and I love it. I will not elaborate here because I pretty much said everything in that other post. But here's the thing. This year I have procrastinated due to laziness and other things and I have not gotten out my fall decorations! Gasp! Usually I pull out the pumpkins and other fall paraphanalia right after Labor Day - to maximize the time I get to enjoy it, which is until right after Thanksgiving. So, since today is smack in the middle of October - half-way to Thanksgiving - should I pull the stuff out or not? I really do love it - a lot - but should I just forgo it this year? I really don't know. I do have my fall candy dish out already and some Reese's Peanut Butter cups in it - because that's way too important to even think about skipping!

I don't have mine out yet either, which is very unlike me. But I still plan to get all of it out after work today. My white pumpkins are way too cute to be stored away in a box for another year. I say it's not too late!

Not too late! Get them out and enjoy! You have at least 5.5 weeks of enjoyment left. That is about all we get out of Christmas decorations as well. Definitely worth it!!!

That's too funny! One of the "must haves" for our first Fall with a home was to have a candy dish. I have a little ghost that holds my Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. They're addicting!

I didn't get my fall stuff out either. Maybe next year. It's just hard to do sometimes.

I haven't got mine out yet either, but plan on doing so in the next few days. I say "go ahead". I think if I didn't I would regret it around Thanksgiving (but my fall stuff is more that, not really related to Halloween)

Rach,
Get them out. You will feel like it truely is fall once you do. It just won't feel like fall otherwise. :)

I say go for it too! I haven't done any fall decorating myself, but it feels so warming and festive.
