When do you put your Christmas or holiday lights up?

Hubby loves to put the lights up, he is like a little kid. He is putting them up the day after Thanksgiving. I'll admit I do love looking at them. So pretty at night.

  • The Saturday after Thanksgiving. My husband and the older boys go out and put them up. They have a blast. Then we all get hot chocolate.

  • We will be putting them UP soon, Up doesn't mean ON the Northeast if you wait until after Thanksgiving your hanging things in the freezing cold and snow.....we get ours up before it's too bad. This weekend here in Buffalo we are supposed to get a dusting of snow on Friday and Saturday, but mid week it'll be 60 degrees, rather than standing in the snow this weekend I'll wait for the wamer dryer temps next week

    In the house, I'm starting now.....I have holiday fever

  • I've always been strict on having NOTHING Christmas until Thanksgiving Day. No lights, no trees, no decorations of any sort. Christmas today is too commercialized and rush rush. It's barely Halloween and already you see all sorts of advertisements and stuff for Christmas. It's just so ridiculous!
