  • We put the Christmas tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving. That weekend is usually when we do most of the decorating.

  • Sometimes at the beginning of December...whenever I feel like it or get around to it. It just depends on my mood because it's a pain to get the tree out of the basement and all that.

  • On Thanksgiving. DH hates it. He usually eats too much and hates helping me with the tree because it requires him to move. LOL.

  • I put lights on the outside of the house the first week in December. The inside stuff and tree goes up less than a week before Xmas and comes down on the 26th.

  • I always do it the weekend before Thanksgiving, because everyone comes here for Thanksgiving but to my aunt's for Christmas that way all my relatives can see it.

  • My 16 yr old DD is like Snoopy in the doghouse decorating contest! She dosen't have school the Friday after Thanks Giving so she gets everything out. She puts up the tree and puts lights up outside too. We tease her about it every year.

  • This yr I'm waiting a little longer, last yr our tree was so dried out by Christmas Day it was making a mess all over the floor. I watered it but it didn't help.. I think I will put the Tree up the 2nd weekend in Dec. All the other decorations will go up after Thanksgiving.
