Too early?! Christmas Tree spotted in Newbridge sitting room...
9:10 Tuesday 16th of October 2018

We know that Christmas starts earlier every year - but is a Christmas tree before Halloween bordering on the ridiculous?!

This festive sitting room was spotted in Newbridge last night.

Last year, the first Christmas trees across Kildare didn't appear until early to mid November.

However be warned - if a natural fir tree is cut before December 1, it could have shed all its needles by Christmas Eve!

Most people wait until December 8th as the traditional day to put up their Christmas tree.

Or do you leave it last-minute, along with the presents and the turkey?

Many opt to put their trees up from the start of Advent – the first Sunday in December.

It's also common to put up the Christmas tree on December 6 in honour of Saint Nicholas - who Santa Claus is named after.

In the United States, many people put their trees up right after Thanksgiving, the last Thursday in November, which is earlier than most of Europe.
