Is it weird that i Put up my Christmas tree on Thanksgiving day?

I go to school and work a lot, pregnant and husband is deployed. I live alone with my dog and i won't have time to put up my tree until after mid december. I put a lot of passion into decorating my tree and having it just perfect... My husband didn't know this because we have never had a Christmas together. He thinks it's weird, the fact that I put my tree up on Thanksgiving day... and the fact that I have 2 trees in my house... is this really all that WEIRD??? I'm probably over analyzing this. (pregnancy hormones talking?)

  • Not sure weird is the right word but certainly non-traditional

  • Nope, I think its a great idea. If I wasnt so lazy I would probably be dragging my box's out of the garage and starting here too

    Its not what I'd do, puts a damper on the current holiday. It can wait till tomorrow or at least Dec 1st.

  • It's not weird, this is when you have time to do it! I used to do it the day after Thanksgiving, that was my familys tradition growing up...but wait, you have two trees?

  • My DH put our tree up 2 weeks ago! He bought a new one and he was so excited about Christmas coming that he couldn't wait. Yeasterday he also put some lights on our fence. It's not weird, you just love Christmas what's bad about that?

  • Nope its not weird, do it when you have time. Ours will be going up soon, we usually would do it this weekend but hubby has to work so it might have to wait until next week.
