Christmas gets earlier and more commercial every year. My brothers birthday is Dec 17 and when we were kids the tree went up on the 18th so we didn't overshadow his birthday (my moms is Dec 25 so she never had a party, actually sometimes didn't get a "happy birthday mom" until boxing day).
But once the decorations are up they do stay well into the new year and while I'm a scrooge humbug guy through Oct/Nov (the bloody city put up decorations in Oct while I was still harvesting WTH?) once the tree is up I do my best to enjoy the season and make up for the poor dad I am during seeding and harvest.
