1. If you celebrate Christmas, are you done decorating? Have you even started?

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one?

3. If you do not celebrate Christmas, do you celebrate something else instead? If so, what is it?

1. If you celebrate Christmas, are you done decorating? Have you even started? i pretty much am done decorating. i even put a santa hat on the huge sailfish we have hanging on our wall.

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one? i have a fake one, but it looks real. we got it two years ago at jcpenney on sale for $220 when it was normally $450. we got it b/c it's 9 ft tall, and we have a really high ceiling in our living room.

3. If you do not celebrate Christmas, do you celebrate something else instead? If so, what is it?

1. If you celebrate Christmas, are you done decorating? Have you even started? Pretty much, tree is up and decorated, I have some decorations around the house and a little tree in DD's room, going to put some big balls on our weeping cherry tree today and pick up a new house flag and pole (mine snapped in a recent storm)

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one?A real one, I love the smell and it's fun to see the different shapes we end up with every year and it's become a tradition for my DD and I to go pick one out together

3. If you do not celebrate Christmas, do you celebrate something else instead? If so, what is it?DD and I celebrate Christmas, DH is Jewish so we also celebrate Hanukkah... our menorah is up too. DD gets WAY to many gifts between both!

1. If you celebrate Christmas, are you done decorating? Have you even started? I need to finish decorating our 2nd tree--maybe tonight...

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one? Real for this year..our new kitten Lucy, may make us have to get a fake for next year...depending on how she "feels" about the ones we have now.

3. If you do not celebrate Christmas, do you celebrate something else instead? If so, what is it?

1. If you celebrate Christmas, are you done decorating? Have you even started? Yes we do and I am all done. I decorated the day after Thanksgiving.

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one? I love, love, love real ones but we have a fake one. We have a really small space to have one in right now so when we went to buy one a couple of years ago, it was the same price to buy the fake on as it was the real one. DH refuses to actually get a permit and go cut one ourselves and I am afraid I will forget to water a real one.

1. If you celebrate Christmas, are you done decorating? Have you even started? I'm pretty much finished decorating. We opted to make almost everything ourselves this year (stockings, ornaments, ect.) so we have been working on it all for a while.

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one? As much as I would love a real one, DH and I are both allergic, and if I had to guess, I'd say our son is, too. They are sooo pretty, but so not worth being sick all season!

3. If you do not celebrate Christmas, do you celebrate something else instead? If so, what is it?

1. If you celebrate Christmas, are you done decorating? Have you even started? I never spend Christmas in my own home, so I never decorate. But now that Kalani is on the way, that'll have to change.

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one? Fake trees, cheap and reusable

3. If you do not celebrate Christmas, do you celebrate something else instead? If so, what is it?

1. If you celebrate Christmas, are you done decorating? Have you even started? I've started, but I'm far from finished. I've got the tree up and decorated and the outside decorations up. I still have quite a bit of work ahead of me. I need to be doing it today but clearly I am not.

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one? Real one! We go every year after Thanksgiving to a tree farm in the mountains to pick out our tree and cut it down. The one we got this year is absolutely beautiful!

1. If you celebrate Christmas, are you done decorating? I'm probably the only one in the group, but we don't celebrate Christmas "commercially." We spend time with family but don't exchange gifts or decorate.

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one? If we did have a tree, it would definitely have to be real for the fragrance!

3. If you do not celebrate Christmas, do you celebrate something else instead? If so, what is it? Growing up, my brother and I got presents on each other's birthdays since we didn't get Christmas presents. It was nice because, in a way, it taught us to be mindful of others and not think "it's all about me" on birthdays. I don't know what (if anything) we'll do to replace it in our home.

Yup, I decorated last weekend. This is definitly the earliest we've ever decorated for Christmas. I usually only decorate about 2 weeks before, but I felt like doing it this year so we'd have more time to enjoy it.

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one?fake...especially with the dog and cat, it's much easier!

And Lauren, I don't think it's weird at all, I would LOVE to make Christmas less commercial. We will be doing almost the same this year. We are buying only 1 gift for my Mom and 1 gift for Marc's parents and 1 gift for Sadie, Marc's BF's little girl that he is the godfather to. Marc and I never exchange gifts (not for xmas, birthdays or anniversaries...nothing!) instead we plan an evening of quality time and sometimes choose something we would both like to have for the house and buy it as our gift together. This year, we will be planning an evening out with my sister and BIL instead of buying gifts and we decidd to have a christmas supper and party with our group of friends also, no gifts allowed! I think that way we stay closer to the real spirit of Christmas, not just caught up in all the gifts!

We love Christmas but have not started decorating.

We will not have a tree. Our cat and dog will tear it up, but we will put up other decorations.

I am done decorating. Usually I put out more but this year I'm taking it a little easy seeing how we will be gone the actual week of christmas. My tree is up and beautiful. Totally decorated. My table has a christmas centerpiece and placemats. I have My snowman cookie jar out and 2 christmas countdown calendars and stockings are hung. Thats about it.

2. If you get a tree, do you get a real one or do you have a fake one?
We have a fake one and light a christmas pine tree candle to pretend we have the real thing. lol
