When are you putting up your tree? Is it becoming more common to do it before Thanksgiving? I usually wait until at least December 1st, but I think we've done it a little bit earlier before (after Thanksgiving). I've also waited until a week before Christmas, or even a little less than a week. I have a friend who just loves Christmas and already has hers up, but I don't think she is the only one... I think a lot of people are starting to do this. What are your thoughts? Does it take away from Thanksgiving or just add to it?
It doesn't take away from thanksgiving but I think it takes away from Christmas... Having it up so long as well as the Christmas music for that long sort of loses its magic. We do it after thanksgiving.
I love christmas but I love it enough to wait to get thanksgiving out of the way so I can focus on just xmas. All my xmas stuff is in aussie so have to buy from scratch Not one bit happy about that as I have acquired nice stuff over the years.
I agree. I like to take one holiday at a time. Plus, with Elijah walking around, it will just be too difficult to have it up that long. DH and I are actually rearranging everything so Elijah doesn't have to stay in the living room only. A Christmas tree will make that more difficult. I am in a serious declutter mood right now, too! I'm getting rid of everything we don't regularly use... it's an awesome feeling.
it will be after thanksgiveing for sure ....respect the turkey ppl.......for us it may actually be pretty late in dec to........ we lost our "tree" (yeah we are fake tree users) when our apt flooded earlier this year and not much of anything is in our budget right now.
