When do you put up your Christmas tree (if you do)?

My son is almost 3.5 and has been asking us since Feb. if we can put our tree up. He found it yesterday in our storage building and really wants to put it up and decorate. He saw the leaves on the ground and said Christmas is here because the leaves fell off. When we walked outside and the temperature had dropped he said Christmas is here because its cold. We usually put it up after Thanksgiving.
We have dicussed putting it up early, but what is too early? When will you do it?

  • We put ours up Thanksgiving weekend. It's my favorite time of the year. If I could put it up earlier, I would. But I think the kids would be sick of it, and I don't want to spend more than a month chasing my 21 mos old away from the decorations. LOL

  • Some years I put one up and some years I don't. I am busy/lazy. If I put one up, I do it on turkey day.

  • Usually while most people are shopping on Black Friday. Its not worth fighting the crowd for me.
