  • 2 weeks before Christmas. We used to do this because it was hard for the kids to wait so long when we put them up earlier. We have just stuck with it even though the kids are older now.

  • The day after Thanksgiving. But I do have to say that my dh put up the house lights yesterday as a surprise to me when I got home from work since it's supposed to be so cold this coming weekend

  • I am such a Christmas freak I would have them up now if I could but we put them up the day after Thanksgiving and take them down on the first....such a sad, sad day.
