Most of us cleaned up Thanksgiving dinner and started to prepare for Christmas. The tree goes up, the lights turn on, you may even wrapped a present or two.

Decorating for Christmas is something we all look forward to but are we taking it too far with the decorations? When I was a child my mom would decorate an indoor Christmas tree, my dad would throw some lights up outside and that was it.

Things have changed. Some families spend weeks decorating for Christmas. Thanks to Pinterest, Instagram and Google we now decorate two or three indoor Christmas trees, hang decorations in every room of our homes and put up lights all the way around our houses.

Let me be clear...I am not saying this is a bad thing. I LOVE Christmas decorations. I'm simply asking if we have taken it too far?
