I put mine up today... I know, I'm super keen - it's October.

I usually put mine up around the 1st of November - as it tends to inspire the necessary shopping.

Can you tell me when you put yours up.

Thank you

We take our holidays in order.

Tress and other decorations can go up anytime after Thanksgiving.

I can tell you love Christmas and that is a good thing. We put our tree and decorations up the last of November/first of December....as much as I love all the decorations, I do get tired of them too. I start planning Christmas in October but I enjoy the fall too much to put Christmas up in October.

I am an old fashion "live tree" person, don't want it to dry out by Christmas so we tend to get it the second weekend in December at the earliest. Sometimes I put up the other Christmas decorations up on the 1st or when we get the tree. I take advantage of any warmer day in November to get outside lights up, but don't turn them on till December 1st. ~Shopping is all year round~

I always celebrate St Patrick's Day on Sundays.


Kidding.

I put up the tree right after Thanksgiving.

I put the tree up the day after Thanksgiving, and take it down after New Years.

Same as you! We love Christmas. Also the outside lights and deer,snow man etc.
This year because of outrageous airfare for Thanksgiving-no help from our kids.
Have a lot of Christmas decorations but I'll do a little at a time-my motivation is my kids and their friends/fiance coming for Christmas!
