  • I always decorate the weekend following Thanksgiving because I like to see my house looking festive for as long as possible.

  • I don't have thanksgiving at my house so i usually put it up the weekend before but there are a few people that just started putting up their Christmas lights. Last year, I was really excited and it was my daughters 1st christmas so i put them up around this time. I'm trying to hold off a couple more weeks. I'm already getting excited.
