  • Lights on house is usually my hubby's thing, but I sometimes wait until the day after Thanksgiving. Last year, I went ahead and decorated early and LOVED it.

  • I always decorate for xmas after halloween. I like to have the xmas stuff out longer than a month :) and it just makes me happier.

  • I agree I like to decorate right after thanksgiving. Better question when should they come down? Last year my neighbors lights were up till around Easter.

  • I put mine up after Thanksgiving and on New Years Eve, the lights are turned off at midnight. I am from the south and I was raised that it was bad luck to have the lights on after New Years. Then New Years day we start taking everything down and packing it away.

  • Meh... Don't know that I will... IF we do anything, we'll put up a string of lights or something, nothing big...

  • I am not sure. We will only put up a tree with my hubby so that would have to be before Thanksgiving so we will see.

  • Inside the house, we decorate the week of Thanksgiving, so it's nice and festive for both holidays. Then we get the tree the week after Thanksgiving because we do a live tree, and we decorate outside the week after Thanksgiving also.

  • Probably around the 13th or 14th of December. We are the type of people that would put them up Christmas Eve and take them down the day after if we could get away with it.
