Christmas has come early for a whole host of celebrities tearing up the festive rule book and getting their decorations up a whole six weeks early.

It’s the age-old debate: how long should you wait to put up your Christmas decorations?

While it might be more traditional to hold off on the holly until December, this year in a bid to lighten the lockdown mood celebrities are digging out the decorations in November.

While some have gone full-on festive and turned their homes into a complete winter wonderland others have gone more minimalist on the holiday vibe, but all say getting their Christmas on early this year has helped them to beat the coronavirus blues.

Sharing their snaps to Instagram, the stars have been giving fans a glimpse into their festive homes as they start early on the celebrations of the most magical time of the year.

Here’s a round-up of the celebrities who have gone early on Christmas 2020...

Kelly Brook

Radio host and former model Kelly Brook echoed the sentiments of many early Christmas decorators, claiming she decided to get her tree up early due to the national lockdown.

“Boris made me do it,” she captioned a picture of her holding up a mince pie in front of her traditionally decorated tree.

Mariah Carey

The Queen of Christmas went super early on her decorations this year, sharing a video of her switch from Halloween to holiday season on November 1.

The trio are seated in front of glitzy Christmas trees as fake snow falls and as the camera zooms in on her, Carey looks at her watch and says, “it's time”.

Well who are we to argue if Carey says it’s time to get our Christmas on?
