  • I actually do the inside starting the week of THanksgiving. I like to have the inside decorations up by Thanksgiving to get a nice festive feel in the house. Then we get the tree the first weekend of December, and we do the outside lights that next week.

  • All of my outside lights and blow ups are up and have been since the first week of November..
    The inside is 90% done, I have 2 trees going up soon and a few more things maybe added outside....

  • We usually do it the weekend after Thanksgiving but I take everything down just the day after Christmas.

  • i agree with the day after thanksgiving if you wait too much longer there is no point in decorating. you decorate to enjoy the season not just the day. not to mention its alot of work so you definitely dont want to decorate one day then have to turn around and spend a whole day taking it all down and packing it up for next year.
