After Halloween many stores, and people move straight into Christmas festivities, while others hold celebrations until a few days before the holiday. Students at Satellite are divided over when they begin celebrating Christmas, and stores starting Christmas earlier and earlier every year.

Satellite students vary on when they start celebrating Christmas, Senior Collin Dunton states, “I’ll listen to a little Christmas music on Christmas Day and Christmas Eve.” However, Senior Jimmy Nunn begins getting into the spirit the 1st of December, and until Christmas he admits, “All I think about is presents”. Nyssa Holmquist, a junior, starts festivities even earlier, “Mid to end of November, around Thanksgiving”, she estimates. 

Almost every store across the area, begins selling Christmas decorations well before Halloween. Nyssa Holmquist is “pretty neutral” about celebrating Christmas early, but commented about stores’ early start to Christmas, “Before Halloween is pretty messed up”. Others are not angry about how early Christmas is celebrated, but that Thanksgiving is completely ignored. Collin Dunton complained, “They are leaving out my Thanksgiving decorations, Thanksgiving is the best holiday!”

Some students approve of the early Christmas spirit. Jimmy Nunn is one of those students, he maintained that stores,”gets [everyone] into the spirit, and it gets me jolly”. Hopefully most other Satellite students agree with Jimmy, because once again this year many stores have already had Christmas merchandise up for weeks, and no matter how much it annoys you someone will still start listening to Christmas music in September. So just stay jolly this holiday season.
