There are many different traditions and beliefs when it comes to the time in which to decorate your home for Christmas.

For some, Christmas trees are put up and decorated at the start of Advent – the season in which Christians prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Advent begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas, known as Advent Sunday, and always ends on Christmas Eve.

Others decorate their trees 12 days before the big day, while in Roman Catholic tradition they are not put up until the afternoon on December 24.

Whatever the tradition or belief, it seems that more and more people are eager to dust off their decorations early every year.

And this year is not different, with many already having started the festive fun after Christmas 2020 was sadly curtailed due to Covid-19 restrictions.

With Halloween and Bonfire Night out the way, we asked the Derbyshire Times fans on Facebook whether they had pulled out their decorations already.

From wonderfully embellished trees to magnificent outdoor displays, many have not let the date stop them from getting into the festive spirit.

However, some agreed it is far too early to have decorations up in November.

Here’s a look at pictures shared by those getting into the festive spirit in Derbyshire.
