When do you all decorate for Christmas? Thanksgiving night? The day after? The 1st of December? Or somewhere between the 1st&Christmas eve? lol

We normally try to do it right after Thanksgiving! The kids love it! This year not sure when we did a lot of furniture changes so may have to rearrange our living room around first.

We have a routine.

Every year my daughter and I put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving.  My husband and son go to an annual car show that day and are out of the house.  They come home and we admire the handiwork and set off to the historic district of my hometown for their tree lighting.

My DH helps with the outside lights on the house the next day.

I want each holiday to be special, so sometime during the first week of December, I put out all of our Christmas things.  My son's birthday is December 8, so AFTER his birthday, we go get a tree and put it up.   I want to have his birthday before we start on Christmas.

 Normally, it would be November 4th, but we are moving this year so it won't be until later this month.

ALWAYS the day after thanksgiving.  When we get back from the BLACK FRIDAY sales.  DH hates it that they are up so long but if I had it my way they would be up the day after Halloween!  haha

Same here!  We put up the decorations on black Friday and DH complains about it!

We put ours up sometime Thanksgiving weekend.  One year, we had the tree up before we sat down for Thanksgiving dinner!  DH really likes to do the outside stuff, but I told DH he had to wait until we got the inside done before he could play with his lights.

DH only gets 1 weekend off a month so whatever his weekend off before Christmas is, the decorations go up. (I need his help bringing everything up from the basement)  It all comes down his weekend off after Christmas.  (Same reason)  This year he's off Thanksgiving weekend and Christmas weekend.  Guess when things will be set up and brought down.  :)  Actually I might leave them up a bit after Christmas only because I'm not going to want to rush.
