  • that's how we've always done it. I'm not really that superstitious but i have always been told that putting your tree up before TG or leaving it up past NY is bad luck.

  • First available opportunity after December 13th (my birthday) and it's down just after January 6th (the 12th day of Christmas)

  • Instead of the day after Thanksgiving we go and get our tree on Saturday (dh usually works on black Friday). I take down the decorations sometime during the week after New Years, no specific day.

  • Thanksgiving weekend it goes up and this year we'll take it down sometime in January. Hubby is due home from a deployment in January, so it will stay up until he gets home and we can do Christmas as a family.

  • We are putting our up this Sunday after Thanksgiving. I take it down the first week of Jan.

  • I prefer to put mine up later in December, the closer to Christmas the better, and take it down right after New Years Day.

  • Our tree goes up the day after Thanksgiving and will come down either the first or second of January. Although I am always wanting to put it up alot sooner I love my tree
