Not everyone was happy with the November Christmas tree trend, with one social media user saying: "No definitely too early never before the beginning of December doesn’t feel right!"

A third echoed the sentiment, writing: "Nooo! I can’t put mine up yet. It’s far too early. I have always said if you have to dust your baubles they’ve been up too long."

Others were happy to see that people had been decorating their homes early this year, pointing out that after a year of coronavirus chaos, it's important to add a little sparkle to life.


Celebrities including Amanda Holden have put their trees up early 

"I think this year you should do whatever makes and keeps you happy!" wrote one.

"Mine was up on Weds and it cheered me up after all the constant horrible news it’s good to get a bit of sparkle," said another.

Plenty of famous faces – including Amanda Holden and Kelly Brook – have been giving their homes a Christmas makeover early this year, and we have to admit, we are totally here for it!
