Most Americans Feel That The Holiday Season Starts Too Early

The day after Halloween is considered to be the kick off of the holiday season for many, which is way too soon for a lot of folks. New research reveals that thanks to Christmas ads starting as early as right after Labor Day, the majority of Americans feel burned out by the time December 25th arrives.

survey of 1,000 people from CouponBirds finds:

  • More than four-fifths (82.8%) of people experience “Christmas fatigue” from all the advertisements, decorations and sales events by the time the holiday rolls around.
  • About the same number (82.4%) think stores put Christmas decor up too early, while 76.8% feel social media posts and online ads for the holidays start too soon.
  • Almost half (48.1%) feel stores should wait until November to start putting up decorations, while 21.4% think they should wait until December.
  • And 45.5% of respondents believe Christmas advertising should start in November both in stores and online.
  • As for the best time to decorate your home for Christmas, 43.9% say it’s November, but 30.9% think you hold off until December.
  • Even Christmas music brings people down after a while, with 75.1% admitting they get annoyed by the seasonal songs before the holiday is here. The songs people feel are the most overplayed are “All I Want for Christmas is You” and “Jingle Bell Rock,” as well as “White Christmas,” “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” and “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas.”
