Stacey Kerman said: ‘If people want their tree up what’s the problem, I’ve got my tree up - it’s not affecting anyone and my family love it.’

And Kelly Angelo commented: ‘It’s never too early when you have kids.’

But others were less keen to get into the Christmas spirit in November.

Melanie Goffe said: ‘Too early for me, I’d be fed up of the sight of it by Christmas. Mid December is my preference.’

Toni Shawashi commented: ‘I generally stick to the 12 days before, 12 days after rule and prefer to keep all things Christmassy nearer to Christmas itself.’

And Ally Lambell posted: ‘Yes, far too early. Kids get so excited and the longer they see the trees and decorations the harder for the parents.

‘We never put our tree up until a wek before Christmas and still do the same.’
