Anyone else not put up a tree yet?

It is Dec 6th and no tree here. There won't be until about the 19th or 20th. We always wait to put the tree up. It seems as if I am the only one ever. Anyone else wait until much closer to Christmas?

  • We do ours no more than a week before Xmas and it comes down on the 26th. I can't stand to have it up any longer than that, so it's usually up for 4-8 days.

  • We will probably do ours next weekend, We don't want to wait too long, but I get allergic to it if it starts to drop needles so I don't want it in here too soon. But I do like to have it for about 2 weeks.

  • I always wait till at least the 15th, usually the 20th. I guess with an artificial tree, I'd probably put it up earlier, but I love real trees.

  • I wait because it's just easier with 2 small kids. Less time I have to monitor them that much more closely.

    Ours will be up by the afternoon of the 19th...we'll probably put it up that morning.

  • No tree here yet either. Probably sometime this week, which is when we usually put it up. :)

  • Call me a grinch but my twins are only 17 months old and would trash any tree we put up so I'm not doing one. I figure next year they'll have enough comprehension (I HOPE) to understand not to touch, so we'll do one then for them. Besides, I don't even HAVE a tree or decorations/lights/anything to put on it. Maybe I'll save some cash getting that stuff AFTER Christmas this year....
