Do you love decorating for the holidays, or is it a chore?

I am having a super hard time getting into the spirit. I love when the decorating is all done, but hate having to do it all. How do you 'get into the spirit'? I need help.

  • I love decorating... I do most of it myself and tweek it all throu the holiday season... I will add or rearrange something if needed...
    I will start early(decorating) and can have it down and nicely put away (after the holiday season) within a few hours...

  • I know what you mean, this year I am grumpy about having to go buy a tree, but when I look at all the houses around all decorated it makes me want my house like that.

  • It's a chore for me. I hate putting up the tree and all the trimmings

  • Yeah, we have a tree, but I have to be the one to decorate it. All DH helped with is taking some things out of a box, dusting it off and putting it on a table. Thanks, DH, what would I do without you? Sorry, I don't mean to complain, I just hate having to always be the creative one.

  • Ugh it's a total chore. I have final projects and finals in the next 2 weeks that I have to worry about, and for the past 4 years I've been in school and hated even thinking about putting decorations up! What's even worse is taking them down and putting them away...what's the point!

  • Putting it up and taking it down is definitely a chore...but I love having it up and seeing it in my home lol.

  • I loved decorating this year because of my son. It's his first xmas and I can't wait for him to rip his presents open lol. I didn't feel so great about decorating all the yr's before, but when you have children it makes Christmas come alive!!

  • Okay, I bought myself a santa hat and will put on some holiday music to try to liven the mood. Maybe I will have a margarita (I know it's not a holiday drink, but I hate gageggnog, so it will have to do).  Now I just need to come up with some creative ideas for the staircase and get busy!  Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone.  I will love it once it's done.
