    Long before the German kings of England, and then Albert in 1841, the bringing of green stuff into the home is an ancient, Celtic tradition at this time of the year to celebrate the death of the Sun King, the mid-winter solstice, and his rebirth 4 days later, as the days start to get noticeably longer.  Their celebrations tended to last - one week, or two weeks, or a month, so if we work on, possible, traditional dates for introducing green stuff, we have - 14/12, 07/12, 23/11.  But not 06/11, when TESCO had theirs up this year:-)

    WELL! This year, we decided to put up a real christmas tree (which we haven't done in years) right after Thanksgiving/beginning of December. Well... it could be the kind of tree that we chose, but the branches are getting a tad bit droopy already haha. Every once in a while, we hear a little ornament drop from one saggy branch to another haha. I would advise waiting till mid-december to put up a tree.

    The day after Thanksgiving is the best day to put up your christmas tree, i do it that way every year, and i don't take it down until the day after New Years. It's the way my mom and dad did it so that's the way i do it and have been doing it for the last 15 years.
