When do you decorate outside for the holidays?

My husband was wanting to decorate outside within the next few days because the weather is going to be nice. I told him though that it seems to me a little too early, and I don't want to cut Thanksgiving short but already decorating outside for Christmas. He says "Sure, of course you wanna wait till its cold to make me to it"...lol.

What do you think? How soon do you decorate your house front?

I'm waiting til' after Thanksgiving. Having it up for sooo long tends to get boring after a while.

We're starting on our yard this week, but we have a ton of decorations so we are usually putting them up until Christmas.

the outside we just started a few days ago...  the inside we are doing on Black Friday after shopping..  But I don't know, because I am thinking I want to do it a little earlier than that, because Thanksgiving and Black Friday are going to be so hectic this year for us...

It's a big tradition at our house to do it the day after Thanksgiving.  We make a big day of it and it's so much fun! (And a lot of work)

We normally do it the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Friday or Saturday.  I am so anxious though.  There is this lady in our neighborhood who really goes all out, and she put her Christmas stuff up this last weekend.  So I want my stuff up even more now.

First weekend of December, same time I put up the tree. I only decorate the window, not the lawn.

I don't put any lights outside until the first week of December.
