We have everything done. We decorated our house with lights on Friday and bought our tree and decorated it on Saturday. I love being able to enjoy it for the whole month.

I just started decorating yesterday. Since Thanksgiving was so early this year, I waited a bit to start. We'll probably put up the artificial tree in the next few days and do the real one in a couple weeks. DH is planning to do the outside lights this weekend.

No, I don't really like decorating before December. Last year I did but it was because I was 9 months pregnant and didn't want to decorate with a newborn around. We're starting next week, most likely.

We are the same as Julia, I don't decorate inside until December. Don't get me wrong I love Christmas, but it feels so long with all the decorations up for over a month.

We did put our outside lights up in October (when we have no snow and it is safer to get on the roof). But just started turning them on this week.

We always put the tree up so that we can enjoy it on Thanksgiving. Some family can only come for Thanksgiving so that is our only chance to enjoy it all together. The rest of the decorations go up after Thanksgiving. I love decorations!!

Our tree is up, Fiona's stocking just came today!! I realized I need to get more stocking holders when I went to add it. I think this is all the decor I feel like doing this year.

No decorating here yet either. My plan is to take down the Thanksgiving and fall stuff this weekend. We are getting our tree on Dec 8, so I think we might start decorating a bit before then.

We pulled out the decorations and have been doing a few little things each evening. This weekend we will get our tree. That's when Mama and her elves go into over drive. Hopefully, by Monday we will be done.

We are going to get our tree this weekend but I honestly am not ready for it.

I'm usually raring to go with decorations but am feeling uninspired this year. Maybe I'll keep it simple this year.

Our tree is up, the mantle is done, and my dining room table is decorated. I have to put up our advent quilt (it has pockets for a different kids book for each day) - it takes up the whole dang wall in the playroom. And then I have to decide what to do outside - I can't decide and last year we didn't have any outside decorations and it looked so dreary compared to the houses all around.
