And how soon can you take it down?

I say anything after Thanksgiving is fine IMO & anything after Dec 27th is good.

I usually put my tree up a week or two into Dec (sometimes later) and I typically don't take it down until at least the New Year, but more often I wait for the epiphany (Jan 6th).

We put our tree up the week before thanksgiving (I think) and took it down the day after xmas.. because it was WAY to huge for our living room.

Generally I like to wait until the day after thanksgiving to put it up and take it down pretty soon afterwards (by new years) but this is what worked for our schedules this year.

Now some of my family members put their tree up the week after Holloween and take it down the week before Easter. I definately think thats too early and too late! LOL

*Thank you *Sharon* for my amazing siggy!*

We always put ours up the Saturday after Thanksgiving and take it down the first weekend after Christmas. The tree just doesn't look right without presents under there so I take it down as soon as I can.
