Is it too early?

I got my first Christmas card today.

What do you think of that?

I admit I have placed a few "mail" orders for Christmas items but I think it is a little early for cards.  I haven't opened it yet but it is from a neighbour - the same neighbour who was first with cards last year and she confirmed that is what it is.  She told me she has 180 cards to go.  If I do open it will I feel that I need to start baking and buying and wrapping right away?  Will I want to get my own cards out before Hallowe'en?  If ignore it for a few weeks am I being a scrooge?  I will confess that last year I updated our Christmas letter regularly through the year so it was ready to mail in December with minimal work but that was a first.  I am just not ready to think much about Christmas for another month.

What about the rest of you?

Ok, that's early...I'd leave it until mid November.

Way too soon! I'd hang on to it until closer to the actual event.
