Christmas Came Early To This Family In Liverpool, Quite Literally

Brace yourselves, because Christmas is lurking around the corner. In fact, it's 103 days until 25 December.

Now, adverts may start appearing on TV and radio ahead of the festive period, but they can be shrugged off.

Personally, I find an acceptable day to begin decorating the house is 1 December. At least we're then in the right month. Not the weekend of 9-10 September.

However, for one family in Liverpool that is exactly what has gone on.

Becky Lytollis and her daughter, Lilly-May, seven, decorated their home in Kirby over the weekend in anticipation of the big day.

The mum-of-one said that her daughter began to get excited for Christmas immediately after her birthday and wants to get festive nice and early.

She told the Liverpool Echo: "It was Lilly May's birthday on September 1 and she always knows that Christmas comes up after it.


"This weekend we went to see the lights at Blackpool and when we got home she asked if we could put the tree up and I just thought, why not?"

Two years ago the pair also made the local paper when they were inspired by a radio station to decorate for Christmas early.

Becky added: "We love Christmas in our house but we don't normally put the lights up this early.

"We usually wait until around the end of October or the start of November but she just loves the tree and there's no harm in it."

The mum and daughter combination put the tree up in their living room on Sunday, and have even added lights to the outside of their home too.


Becky said: "My friends and family said I'm mad and my fella just sat and laughed his head off while we were decorating.

"I don't care, there's no harm in it and it makes us both happy."

Fair enough, I suppose.
