“Nov. 1 because Thanksgiving doesn’t really count as like a whole holiday. Christmas is way better,” eighth grader Livi Adams said.

 

 

Seventh grader Morgon Thompson said, “I think Nov. 1. because it’s my favorite holiday, and I want to celebrate it as long as possible!” (Lydia Schimansky)

 

 

Eighth grader Addison Mitchell said, “Nov. 1 by far because it is scientifically proven that people who decorate earlier are happier, and I want to be happy!” (Ella Heverly)
Eighth grader Nayzia Midder said, “I think it starts Nov. 1 because it usually snows on Nov. 1, and that’s when Christmas starts.” (Londyn Runk)

Eighth grader Riley Winters said, “Thanksgiving. Because technically, it’s not even winter yet. It’s still fall.” (Emma Hovan)

Eighth grader Lucas Fleck said, “After Thanksgiving because the cold weather makes it feel more like Christmas.” (Fin Reed)

About the Contributors
Andie Kephart, Reporter
Hey! My name is Andie Kephart, and I'm an eighth grader and reporter for Livewire. I really enjoy writing, reporting and photography. I'm very excited to be a part of the Livewire staff. Outside of school, I enjoy doing competitive weightlifting, painting and spending time with my friends. I have been lifting for 3 years now and have competed in many national competitions  all across  the U.S.  My favorite quote that I hear coaches and teachers say is, “Give 110% in all that you do.” I try to apply this to my life in the things that I do. My future plans are to go to Penn State University and become a physical therapist.

    Obviously it starts after thanksgiving oh my gosh! Take it one holiday at a time! I want to enjoy the fall and thanksgiving season first, and THEN move into Christmas. I think it’s crazy that people already decorate for Christmas in early November or sometimes even October! Slow down!
