Why people are decorating early for the holidays

Perhaps because we’re spending more time at home, we’ll take any excuse to brighten things up in this crazy year.

ZIONSVILLE, Ind. — Getting ready for the holidays is happening earlier this year, perhaps because we’re spending more time at home and we’ll take any excuse to brighten things up in this crazy year.

“Surprisingly, everyone is pretty excited,” said Isaac Beverstock, the lead designer with Christmas Decor by Second Nature Landscapes. 

They tell 13News their business is already getting a lot of calls.

“People are home this year,” said Beverstock. “People got a lot closer to their families this year. People are having a lot of family over this year, hopefully in a safe manner, and they just want to make the most out of this year because it’s kind of been a depressing year for a lot of people.”

So people are already preparing to put up their Christmas lights earlier this year. 

Now, before for all you grinches out there freak out about seeing decorations before Thanksgiving, there are ways to adjust your decorations for different holidays.

“If we’re utilizing light in the decor, there’s a lot of cool products out there now that will help with that transition with different color schemes,” said Beverstock. “Like for Halloween, you can run orange and purple.”

The lights they use can be programmed electronically so this doesn’t mean you have to hang new lights for every holiday.

Second Nature Landscapes, based in Zionsville, is also taking nominations of military families to offer holiday decorating.

“Military personnel who are overseas, they can be nominated,” said owner Cory Owens. “We go out and, as a surprise, decorate for those families. It’s always a very difficult time for those families not having their loved ones at home, so for us to be able to bring them a little cheer, it’s something that we take a lot of pride in.”
