I wait until after Thanksgiving, however just yesterday I saw some people setting up an inflatable Santa Claus and snowman in their front yard. We still have almost 8 weeks to go before Christmas, but I guess it's different strokes for different folks.
From what I've observed, most people start the day after Thanksgiving.
I'm one of the people who wait until after Thanksgiving. Not too many people around me decorate before then. Some of them will get outside and string up lights before then so they can do it while it's still fairly warm, but don't turn them on until later.
My outside lights go on the day after Thanksgiving but I usually wait a week or so after that before I decorate inside my home.
We work in stages: I start putting up decorations ie. wreaths, candles, and garlands the week after Thanksgiving and work poinsettias in with my white flowers by the front door, my husband works on the outdoor lights 2 weeks before Christmas, and we get our tree the week before. It all comes down by Jan. 7.
We haven't yet started decorating for Christmas but usually a day or two before the day
The weekend after Thanksgiving. I'm waiting to purchase anything Christmasy and decorate the house until that weekend. Doing it before seems like cheating myself out of the patient wait. If I get ready too soon, the Christmas spirit will not be as easy to achieve in December.
I start right after Thanksgiving. I do it in stages so that it is completed by the second week of December. It adds to the excitement of the season since it is like a slow moving picture.

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!

Do you decorate for Valentine's Day (not for a party, just for fun)?I find it cheerful to decorate seasonally but then I'm a crafter and it just gives me an excuse to display the little do-dads me and the kids make. Halloween & Christmas are the big decorating holidays but do you do...
