How soon do you put up your Christmas decorations?
Are you the type of person who strings lights and puts your tree up the day after Thanksgiving? Or do you wait until closer to Christmas?
We start putting decorations out on the front lawn the first week of November. Our Thanksgiving is in October so we start the rest of the house in December after the outside lights are up and running.
Our Thanksgiving is in October, so no, not after Thanksgiving. I like to put mine up the first weekend in December.
I love to put up all of my decorations the weekend of Thanksgiving.
About mid-December otherwise I get tired of the stuff laying around. I try to have a family party for my girls and my two grandchildren so they can decorate the trees and enjoy the lights putting up the village buildings I have.
As a child, we put up the decorations about ten days before Christmas and they came down again on twelfth night. I thought that was about right - not too long to get sick of looking at them. Now my wife likes them to be up on the 8th December (a traditional Irish thing) and by twelfth night I am truly sick of them. It's such a relief to get back to normal after Christmas. Don't get me wrong, I do love Christmas but I think it's very depressing to see the decorations up in the shops before Halloween is even over. It takes the sense of occasion away.
My family have nicknamed me 'Scrooge' by the way!
Whenever I feel like it...before Christmas, that is.

When do you put up your Christmas decorations?I like to put mine up about the week before Thanksgiving. Some people think this is too early, but I know of others who put their decorations up at the beginning of November. What do you think?

My family and I absolutely adore Christmas, so we always start putting up our Christmas decor on the first week of November. Everytime I tell someone when we decorate they think we are CRAZY! I'm sure there is someone else who does it too!

My wife starts preparations for Christmas from the 1st January (in the January Sales); picking up any Christmas Crackers for next year, Christmas lights or trimmings that need replacing, and buying Christmas gifts for next Christmas, if any of these are any genuine bargains in the Sales e.g. items...
