It has been the practice mostly of Filipinos to decorate houses early for Christmas. Here, when the month ends already in BER, that signals the fast approaching of Christmas. It is also for the same reason why we have countdown. Decorations help us to feel excited about new life. The spirit gives us festive mood. When our mood is happy, we transcend it to others and to our work. Personally, it is the most precious time of the year.

well i know some craft stores start putting christmas stuff out now so crafters (like me) have a chance to get to work on things but in the average store, this mystifies me too. i love christmas but like you said, many find it a depressing season because it seems to be all about money and gifts.
