The only decorations I put up are a tree and stockings. I wait until Dec. 1st. I take them down the day after Christmas. When I was a kid the tree went up 1 wk before Christmas and came down the day after.

I generally put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving. I take it down.... well, some years we have had an Easter tree.

We put it up the first week of December, and take it down before New Years. Except outside lights, they went up this past weekend, and will come down once the snow is gone. We only turn them on when we have inside decorations though

Anytime the weekend after Thanksgiving until the first week of December.

We're doing The Elf on the Shelf and I have decided that tonight he will come & set up the tree for us and put on the lights. . . Tomorrow we'll decorate the tree and put up the rest of our Christmas decorations. I bought the girls a small cheap little Christmas tree for their playroom that Emmersyn & I set up earlier this week.

We decorate the day after Thanksgiving (though this year it seems to be taking longer... I wonder why ). And I typically take it down on New Year's Day.

I like to put ours up the day after Christmas. This year, howver, we suddenly decided to re-arrange the house first, then I get to put up the tree. Hopefully,I can get it up tonight.
As for taking down, I actually like to keep it through January, but hubby tends to try to get me to take it down after New Years. We'll see what happens this year

About 10 days before Christmas to set up the tree and take it down after New Year's.

Stockings are only put out on Christmas Eve.

My holiday table cloth and the elf shoe I usually put out in December. I also kind of want one of those porcelain trees with the little light bulbs.
