The Holidays are Upon UsDecatur Metro | November 5, 2009
Wondering why you’re feeling a little extra weight on your shoulders this morning?
It’s because Halloween is over and the “holiday” season has just begun! Stores are stocking red and green and putting all their shiniest merchandise on the shelves. That goes for Decatur too.
Over on the Minute, Lyn Menne seems resigned to the noise she will hear from residents as the city’s street decorations start to appear in very early November.
OK, go ahead and vent. Get it out of your system and then just relax and enjoy the beautiful site of holiday decorations in downtown Decatur. Yes, the holiday decorations are going up and yes it’s a bit earlier than we had scheduled. As we’ve explained before, we are a relatively small account for holiday decorating installers so we are given a window of opportunity and then see where we fall in their schedule.
And while some may complain as the “holiday season” dilutes itself by climbing further up the calendar towards the 4th of July each year, few will complain that with November starts the great Decatur tradition of “Terrific Thursdays” (click the the lovely banner at the top of the page for more details). Stores are open late and offering big ol’ discounts starting tonight! So get out there are do what the banner says! “Shop Local. Shop Decatur.”
Full Disclosure: The banner above IS a paid advertisement. However even if it wasn’t, I’d still be shouting the same thing, as is evidenced by countless posts in previous years!
