I keep debating starting, but I try to stick to my 45-days rule which means I can't decorate more than 45 days in advance of a holiday. Of course, if DH is gone next week ... what he doesn't know won't hurt him

We decorate after Thanksgiving, since we prefer a real tree we have to wait for the tree farms to open. We also go get our tree ourselves, cutting it down and everything.

The day after Thanksgiving. It's tradition with my family and I am all about traditions.

I just dug up some candles and stuff, and pretty soon I will put out some winter stuff. I usually put up the tree and the rest of the works around the end of november.

We do the day after Thanksgiving too, Rayanne! It's a tradition for our family as well
I'm a huge Christmas person and go all out on the house, inside and out. We go and get the tree that morning and then I'll shoo Jon outside to start putting up our outdoor lights and decor (which he is always SO thrilled about, lol).

My tree (and other stuff) does not go up until AFTER Thanksgiving. Usually the weekend after T-day or the first week of December.

On my way to class last night, I noticed someone already had their Christmas tree up and lit in the window I love Thanksgiving too much to let it be overshadowed by the overcommercialized holiday Christmas has become...

After Thanksgiving. As much as I love Christmas, I also love Thanksgiving, and hate to see it lost in the shuffle!!

This year we're going into New York to see the Christmas Show at Radio City. I can't wait!! I finally got smart and asked for the tickets for my birthday in October. That's December 8... it will make it feel like the Christmas season has started!
