The Christmas tree for Medal Of Honor Park from the City of Boston arrived on Sunday to many residents shock and dismay. With Christmas roughly two months away, we wonder, “Why on earth was the tree delivered so early?” Halloween is Tuesday, and Thanksgiving is several weeks away.  Talk about rushing the season.  Maybe we can decorate it with pumpkins and turkeys in the meantime?

It wasn’t only Southie that got an early tree. According to 311, one North End resident was less than pleased with the arrival of the Christmas tree.

    Wow!! It is definitely more than just a little bit early to put up a Christmas tree. The Christmas season generally starts the day after Thanksgiving, which would’ve been a better time to have the Christmas tree put up. Christmas isn’t my holiday, and we haven’t celebrated Hanukah either, since my siblings and I were raised up in a non-religious household (and I’m glad of it.) I do admit to loving Christmas trees, the Christmas lights, and even many of the Christmas carols, especially when they’re played and sung by a professional choir, and/or on an organ!curious

    Btw—just out of curiosity, what does everybody think about what’s going on in the Middle East right now? A curious, inquiring mind wants to know.

    Yup! Waaaaay too early. For me, the day after Thanksgiving is when the season starts. Then I’m all in!

    Hallowe’en beginning in mid-August is equally ludicrous.

    That’s pretty crazy.

    A bit early, but the tree is beautiful.
