Ours went up the day after thanksgiving like it does every year. It was a nice warm day sp hubby put up all our outside lights as well. We are pretty simple, but I enjoy them. :)

 Ours went up on Sunday & presents went under it as soon as it was up. We don't do any outside decorations (don't see the point for a higher electric bill & an advertisement of "Christmas presents here" to thieves)

Mine will *probably* go up tonight.  I say probably because I still have to go grocery shopping andrun DS1 out to an activity so I may losse motivation.

I had DH get it out of the rafters and I decorated the living room today.

no tree up. I don't think we will do a tree this year. I don[t like artificial tree, it will probably get messed up by my toddler anyways. If I could get a real one I would go out today and get one lol (my mil is allergic so we can't)

We haven't put ours up yet. We were going to do it last weekend, but decided not to yet, since Luke took off half of the ornaments before Christmas last year. So, we're trying to wait a little longer. We'll probably end up doing it this weekend anyway.

 I let my DS put ours up the day after Thanksgiving this year.  I usually wait until closer to Christmas, but he has been wanting to put it up early for a couple of years now.  I was hoping he would want to wait so we could get a real tree this year, but no he wanted to put up the fake one and it's more for him than me anyways so I caved in and let him put it up!

We put the tree and lights up the day after Thanksgiving.  Now I've just got to get the ornaments on it, haha!!

Growing up we always put the tree up day after thanksgiving, as an adult I have yet to achieve that.
This year the debat is over rather to use the fake tree we used the last two years or go get a real one since daddy is back from afganistan. With him being gone for two years I just didn't have it in me to do the tree getting, the fake one was the easy way out.

We do a real tree, and as we are Catholic and observe Christmas for 12 days, we won't put ours up for another week or so. We want it to last through till Epiphany.
