Satire: What Kind of Christmas Decorator Are You?

People fall into different categories concerning Christmas, markedly shown by their decorating alone. If you celebrate Christmas (I certainly hope so), you are probably already squirming in your chair wondering which category you fall into.

Good. 😉

Eager Elves Category

People in the Eager Elves category begin to celebrate Christmas before Thanksgiving has even arrived. They begin listening to Christmas music, making out their lists, and begin decorating their house in mid-November. I have heard of these weird elves…I mean people. Don’t worry, they are just deceived by the Stuffmarts of this world putting out red and green merchandise in the middle of October. The only explanation for these people is that they must be extremely organized.

Normal Celebrators Category

The day after Thanksgiving is the day these celebrators can begin thinking about Christmas because well, Thanksgiving is over…duh. The weekend of Black Friday the Christmas decorations begin to be pulled out and awesomesauce Christmas music is the background for the family putting up the lights and tree. The only explanation for these people is that they must be extremely, um, normal. My family falls into this category, of course.

Procrastinator Decorator Category

Some people are just procrastinators…er… really busy. They wait til Christmas Adam to put up their decorations. (Christmas Adam is the day before Christmas Eve. Adam came before Eve. It works nicely that way.) Since they have put up their adornments so late in the year, they automatically procrastinate…I mean give themselves an extension of removing them at the end of January instead of at the end of December. The only explanation for these people is that they must be extremely, um, busy.

Christmas Olympics Category

A narrow percentage of folks really knock it out of the park; they fall into the “Christmas is everyday” mindset. Their symptoms are characterized by keeping their decorations out all year round. Have you ever passed someone’s house at night in May and seen their Christmas lights up, some even still lit? These are the people who own the Christmas stores open all year round and started the “Christmas in July” cliché. Don’t worry, it’s just their wishful thinking that if they do these things everyone else will, too. The only explanation for these people is that they must be in some sort of Christmas Olympics.

  1. I’m a slightly abnormal normal celebrator. I most certainly wait until after Christmas, but even just another week or so. I like to enjoy a bit on non-holiday before I rush into the next one. This year I really paired down my decorating – kept it simple and subtle. Which makes it so much easier to pack up come January! Great, fun post, Kelly!

    • It makes perfect sense to give yourself a breather between the two holidays, Tiffany! That’s brilliant, actually. Simple seems to be the “new Christmas” these days. So glad to see you here! Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  2. I’m a normal decorator… the one thing I can call myself normal in! HAHA thanks for this fun message! i will say I’ve given up T.V for a little while so I’ve been listening to Christmas music quite often.. keeps me in the holiday spirit! Merry Christmas, friend!

  3. Total procrastinator!! One year it was Christmas eve before the stockings were hung… and the best I could do for a tree were three small primitive ones on the coffee table!! This made me laugh Kelly! Thanks for the humorous approach 🙂

  4. I probably fall more into the procrastinator category (although I prefer to think of it as busy). I thought this year would be different, but since I’m on the plane to another state to help my mom who just had surgery, it may be the “it just doesn’t get done” category this year. LOL Thanks for giving me a smile!

  5. Normal – I even take down all my decorations on Christmas day. I have friends who call me Scrooge because of it. It’s always good to laug, Kelley. Thank for your kinds words on my post. Thanks for sharing with Thankful Thursdays.

  6. I loved this and laughed reading the comments! I am usually anti “the day after Thanksgiving” decorating but this year we had to use the one day Matt was here to get the tree…and then we just couldn’t wait lol. So we are “normal” it looks like! I pretend I don’t see the Christmas decor before then hehe.
