Local residents get head start on holiday decorations

Hampshire County

SOUTH HADLEY, Mass. (WWLP) – Traditionally most families wait until the day after Thanksgiving to launch into their Christmas decorations, but because Saturday was so mild some people got a head start.

Devin Laramie of South Hadley and his two children took advantage of the weather and began their Christmas lighting preliminaries.

They’re definitely in the Christmas spirit.

“Not usually this early, we usually do this the day after Christmas,” Laramie told 22News. “With the help from the day as it is, we found we should get out before it gets really cold and dealing with snow.”

Since Sunday’s weather looks unsettled some thought Saturday was a good idea to take advantage of the nicer weather.
