I'm never sure when it's too early to start celebrating Christmas.
For Americans, it seems that as soon as Thanksgiving is over, the decorations for Christmas come out, but in England, we don't do Thanksgiving.
As a child I remember being super excited to come home from school and find that Mum had pulled the big boxes down from the loft. There were always several items that became expected to be out come mid-December. Mostly things that lit up and annoyed my Dad!
I always thought Mum went a little too far, she'd change the cushions, tinsel would hang from the ceiling and surround the lamps. my brothers and I would be goaded into licking the ends of foul tasting strips of paper in order to make garlands that adorned the hallway, and there was always a battered paper Santa & Reindeer blu-tacked to our stair railings.
The thing I remember most though, is decorating the tree. Ornaments from years back would make their appearance, and with words of warning from my Mum we'd carefully slip them onto the tree, under her guidance. And then when we went to bed, she'd re-arrange them and hide all the bare spots!! I think, even now, she's one of the few people who still enjoy putting candy canes and chocolate foiled treats on the tree... And I'm certain she gets some sadistic pleasure in telling us (even as adults) not to touch the sweeties!

Decorating this post bought back a lot of memories. Even those scents you get when you pull out the Christmas decorations for real, and the utter excitement that you experience as a child, or when you're including your own children in the whole scene. They're some of my favourite family memories.
Moss&Mink have done a fabulous job of grabbing at those memories and it's worth mentioning that the set shown also comes in a pastel version, which is JUST as adorable as the classic version shown in my post.
