Please no, not until December. I was already upset the Aldi store had its Christmas tree up early in November but apparently that's to transition from Halloween to a month of nothing before the festive season.

It’s 2020! I think people should be allowed whatever decorations they want.

In Adelaide, Christmas Pageant Day, the second Saturday in November, is the cue for everyone to start decorating their houses. But this year there wasn't an actual street pageant through the city, just a socially-distanced ticketed/televised event at the main stadium, so it doesn't feel right, somehow.

Not really a defined start in Melbourne, although Christmas bits and pieces are starting to appear.

One of the big advantages of the American Thanksgiving is that it stops the spread of Christmas forward into the year. (Incidentally, if we're going to import the American Black Friday, can we have the Thursday feasting part of the deal, too?).

Black Friday was last week. We don't need another one. Besides, it just makes me think we're about to have another bushfire.

Perth's Christmas pageant is the first weekend in December. I believe it's still going ahead this year in some form (actually I just checked and this year it's the second weekend and you need to apply for free tickets).

My light display will be pretty poor (if at all) this year. I used to have about 15 lots that I strung up through the front garden but I'm down to my last five, presuming they still work (they're solar).

Guess we've now got something to do while in lockdown...

You should definitely do the feasting!

Some people are noting that spreading a deadly disease during a meal of thanks giving is more historically accurate than the way we normally do things.
