  • I just bought me a new FAKE tree last year. So excited for Christmas this year! We get started the day after Thanksgiving on decorating. =)

  • Fake. And usually about 2-3 weeks before. Then back down on Jan 2nd! I get my fill of holiday decorations/music every time I enter a store. The day after Halloween they were putting up their Christmas stuff! Ugh-give me a break!

  • It's kind of been a tradition since I was a kid to take out all of the Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving and get started. So i've been doing this with my own children since they were born =) We used to do real trees but i've a had fake one now for 3 years and I love it! It's pre-light, easy to assemble, and don't have to worry about the kiddos stepping on pine needles or sticking them in their mouths.

  • We put a huge real tree up:) We wait to decorate for Christmas until December 12th after my twin girls birthday party on the 11th. I would decorate sooner but my husband insists that we should wait and let their birthday be separate from Christmas. I agree in theory but I LOVE Christmas ha-ha!
