The most wonderful time of the year is just around the corner. So it’s just a matter of time until your favourite stores, malls, and neighbours start pulling out the Christmas decorations. But how soon is too soon for Christmas decorations? We asked Canadians across the country how many weeks from Christmas they put up their decorations.

Christmas Decorating How Soon Is Too Soon

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas faster in Manitoba than the rest of the country. Manitobans are busting out their Christmas decorations 4.3 weeks early from Christmas day. Following closely behind, Saskatchewan residents decorate 4.2 weeks in advance, while Prince Edward Islanders decorate exactly 4 weeks ahead of Christmas.

New Brunswick decorates 3.8 weeks early with Newfoundland and Labrador at 3.7 weeks. Alberta and Nova Scotia both pull out their Christmas decorations 3.5 weeks ahead of the holiday. Residents of Quebec are the second to last province to decorate their homes in time for the Christmas holiday, at 3.4 weeks in advance. The province that is late to the game is Ontario, where they put out decorations exactly 3 weeks before. 

Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Yukon were not accounted for due to insufficient amounts of data. 

Christmas is in the air

64.4% of Canadians agree that stores put up Christmas decorations too early. By the looks of our data, it seems like the acceptable time for Christmas decorations is 4 weeks from Christmas. 

Despite Canada being the world’s biggest Christmas tree exporter, only 19.3% of Canadians buy real Christmas trees over artificial trees. 

As the New Year rolls in, it’s not uncommon for households to leave their Christmas decorations up for a week or two … or three. However, 62.8% don’t think their neighbours leave their Christmas decorations up for too long after Christmas. Perhaps the heaps’ amount of snow plays a role in that. 


We surveyed 1,000 Canadian residents across the country. The average age of respondents was 34.2 years old. The average household income of respondents was $98,899.23.
