  • Last year we put it up a week before Thanksgiving. I will not be doing that again this year, no way. I was sick of looking at the tree by the time Christmas rolled around, LOL.

  • We get a real tree. We put it up around 2 weeks before christmas. Sometimes I decorate the house right after thanksgiving. Stockings and all.

  • I usually start decorating when Advent begins....but the tree never goes up until after Thanksgiving...

  • We get a real tree sometime in December. Last year we put in up in the beginning of the month and it died before Christmas day.
    My son and I were just taking a walk around our neighborhood and one house had a Santa head on the front door and another house actually had their tree up in the front room. I could see it through the screen door. Too early for me!

  • we get a live tree too, so about a week or so before Christmas and then it stays up till New Years day. I get really nervous turning on the tree lights when the tree is super dryed out....

  • We too get a real tree, and it doesn't go up any sooner than 2 weeks before Christmas. Don't want it drying out!

  • IF I am not doing Thanksgiving Dinner, my trees go up within the 3rd week of Nov. or so...
    IF I am doing Thanksgiving Dinner, then they go up the day after TG... I put up several trees (fake, bc of allergies)

  • Thanksgiving here is in Oct, so no - no tree before Thanksgiving. Ours usually goes up in the first couple weeks of Dec.
