As for the larger Holidays such as Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas they of course go up early and stay up longer... Halloween will start going up the
end of September and stay up until Nov.1 I only leave a few Fall items up for
Halloween will start going up the for the Thanksgiving Holiday, but as of Nov. 1 my Christmas stuff starts to up and out and they don't come down until the 3rd of Jan.

  • We decorate for Halloween the second weekend in October normally, and take them down the 1st of November. Then my Christmas decorations go up INSIDE the week before Thanksgiving. We get the tree and put up the lights outside the week after Thanksgiving. They stay up til January 3rd or 4th normally. We have regulations here in base housing on when we can put up the decorations and how long they can stay up.

  • We put up our Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving. And, we take them down Christmas day afternoon. By then, I'm ready to have them down,and my house back to normal. I love them, but I'm always ready to have them gone again.

  • I decorate for Halloween when I am reminded by costumes in stores or see our neighbors decor going up. I don't do much besides a door sign a decorative witches broom, some spiders and webbing.

    If Thanksgiving is not at our house, I start decorating for Christmas the first part of November, if it is at our house I do Thanksgiving decor inside mid September and leave it up until I have recovered from Black Friday shopping.

  • We put our Christmas decorations up the day after Thanksgiving and take them down the day after New Years. I combine Halloween with all my Fall decorations and then when Halloween is over I take them out and Fall/Thanksgiving remain until Thanksgiving Day, when I put them up in the attic and taking Christmas stuff out.
