Boo hoo on all the Scrooges too bad they miss out on the smiles. Eveything should be up by third week in October, but nothing comes down until April (maybe) it may be up longer.
Three cheers to Mr and Mrs. Santa for all their dedication hard work.
It enables us elves to communicate!!!

I must admit at my house there not up till early December in full but a few bits start making their way in by the start of November, maybe a little earlier. Though I always have a little smile when I pass a house on the bus etc and see they have theirs up before December. Thats not too many but certainly a few!
