  • The Saturday after thanksgiving. My tree and decos also go down the day after Christmas. Never, ever leave them up until New Years. My Mom used to do that and sometimes it was the end of Jan before the tree would get put up..and usually only because I initiated it.

  • Two years ago, I had everything up the week before Halloween! I love decorating! I'll probably wait for about two weeks! I'm sorry, I have no will power and Christmas decorating is my weakness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Since the day we were married (oct '93) hubs has asked that I put everything up the day after thanksgiving... I thought it was too early but I gave in.

    He wanted me to keep it up until valentines day but he gave in to me on that nutty idea and we take it all down Jan 1.

  • We are going to have to do it a little bit before Thanksgiving if I want my husband to be involved.

  • Usualy the lights go on the house the first week in december, the tree about a week later, since we go to the tree farm and cut a fresh one. The inside decorations besides the tree go up around the same time.

  • Black Friday all of the fall stuff comes down and the next day Christmas starts to go up. We don't put up the tree until December 1st, though.
