When do you start putting up Christmas decorations?

I saw a house on Monday that had tons of Christmas lights in their yard already! Crazy, but love it.

  • We start the day after Thanksgiving. The only homes around here that start before that are the ones that go all out with thousands of lights. They dont light it until the day after Thanksgiving but they start putting them up in Oct.

  • After Thanksgiving. Growing up we waited until a week before Christmas because my mom and my brother have December birthdays and we wanted their birthdays to be separate from Christmas.

  • Usually the weekend after Thanksgiving. If I put them up before that I get tired of them by Christmas.

  • usually after thanksgiving, but in michigan i have noticed that the old people before they go south they put theres up before they leave and have it on the timer.. i know when i met my husband he had christmas light on the house all year around cause he was too lazy and busy with work to take them down.. it just depends on the people and if you want to do when, if it snows .
