Weekend of Thanksgiving. We bought it the Saturday after Thanksgiving, but  didn't have it decorated till Monday I think. We've had real for two years now but I do have a fake one. I do buy the kids new ornaments ever year.

 I usually have an artificial tree since I am allergic to real trees

 We don't have a certain time that we put it up, usually the first or second week in December but sometimes it is later.  We always have a real tree.  Sometimes we cut it down, sometimes we just buy a precut one.

My husband puts puts the tree up and our daughter hangs most of the ornaments. There are a few special ones we each add our selfs. Every year we buy a new one to add to the tree

Our tree goes up the first week of December, it is real. Every year we go to the Christmas store near us, and each get a new ornament. We also make some too. No style, lots of color. And I love penguins so we have a lot for decoration.

We decorate the tree in Indianapolis Colts colors :)  It used to be real but I got a good deal on an artificial tree.  I dont do special ornaments or things like that.

We have an artificial tree due to allergies to the real ones. We have lots of ornaments that we have collected over the years. Some are from my childhood, some are from ones my grandma gave me from her house since she no longer puts up a tree, some we bought right after we got married and some the kids have made at school and such.
