When do you put your tree up? Do you get a real tree?

Last year, we put ours up BEFORE Thanksgiving. Too early, I know. This year, it'll probably go up after Thanksgiving dinner.

We put ours up the day after Thanksigiving. It is a fake one because I love to put it up so early and a real one would die.

I decorate my whole house the entire weekend. I am hoping I have the energy this year. if it were this weekend I would say heck no, I want to sleep, lol

We usually put our tree up the day after Thanksgiving as a family, and it's a 9 foot fake tree but it's looks so great up. We are buying new decorations this year with some of the kids old decorations they have made over the years. Love the holidays, just hope I'm not sick for most of it.

We live in a tiny apartment, so we just get a little (but real) tree and set it up on our dining table. We had so much fun taking Eliza to pick it out last year! I can't wait! We wait until the second week of December or so, though. I get sick of looking at it if it's up for too long, and I don't like being tired of Christmas before it even happens.

We cut a real tree off our property, and usually put it up either the weekend before Christmas or even wait until Christmas Eve. We are Catholic so we observe Advent and then celebrate Christmas until well into January.

We normally put ours up thanksgiving night or the day after. We will have family visiting this time so I think it might not go up until the weekend after. We have a fake tree we sometimes put up but other times we will buy a live one. We may get a real one this year if we find a good one.

We put ours up the day after Thanksgiving. We have a fake one because DF and DS are terribly allergic and have asthma. Neither one of them would be able to breathe if we had a real tree.

I love the smell of a real tree But we have to wait until just a couple of weeks before Christmas so it doesn't die before.. if it would live long enough we would put it up on Thanksgiving

We have been putting it up the weekend after Thanksgiving but we get a real one and it gets old and I get sick of watering it by then. I think we will wait until a week or two after Thanksgiving this year. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas!

We have a fake tree, but probably won't be putting it up until the first of Dec or so. We have to find a way to rearrange our living room first!

We put it up the day after Thanksgiving. It's fake, I've never had a real tree. I know I wouldn't want to deal with it.
