Usually the weekend after Thanksgiving I take down my Fall decorations and turkey stuff and put up Christmas ones. I usually do up Fall as much or more than Christmas. I do lots of generic Autumn stuff and then I add Halloween or Thanksgiving stuff.

This year I been really busy working and trying to get Moms house ready to sell and settling all the estates. I haven had a chance to do any Fall decorating. I considered doing it for Thanksgiving but then my husband went in the hospital and I said the heck with it. I think Ill just do Christmas early around the end of the month. Nobody sees it but me and the felines.

I usually start the weekend just following Thanksgiving. This seems to be the popular time to start according to the other posts. I love the holidays. We usually go pick out a fresh cut tree the Saturday following the feast, the christmas tree smell is such a wonderful scent.
