I walked out of our house the day after halloween and saw that our neighbors had just put up their Christmas tree (it’s in the front bay window of their house). I know she is pregnant and could have the baby any day now so I figured that she wanted to get the tree up before the baby arrived. Then I realized that maybe they just like putting it up early.
I think this year we will wait until after we have hubby’s family over for Chanukkah, that way we will have some separation of the two holidays. I don’t know what we’ll do when they overlap!

We put one up sometime after Thanksgiving, but not too close to Christmas because we want to enjoy it for as long as possible!

At the request of my FI it goes up after Thanksgiving. I would put it up that day if I knew he would not roll his eyes. But, I have my Christmas candels out and some decorations out. But I cannot wait for the tree!

The family tradition has always been the day after Thanksgiving. I can’t wait to do it. It just makes the house so cheerful no matter what is going on.

M and i discussed that I can put them up next week because I have to work on Thanksgiving, but I think we’ll end up putting it up next weekend.

There’s a long time between Thanksgiving and Christmas for me 😉 but I usually start putting things up around the beginning of December.

Sorry littlylynx! I forgot that Canadian Thanksgiving is a lot earlier.
Sorry also to all non-american Bees who don’t celebrate any thanksgiving! Is there a holiday in your country that people use as a gauge for putting up the Christmas tree?

Growing up we never got a tree until 2 weeks before Christmas. I always felt jipped out of my Christmas tree time! So, as an adult, it goes up within 3 days of Thanksgiving (depending on work/school schedules). I already have wrapped presents to put under the tree this year! Yay!

We usually do it right after Thanksgiving now, but with my family when we got a real tree it was the 1st or 2nd weekend in December.
And my mom is a real grinch, she once took down our xmas tree on christmas day.

We still go up to my parents for the holidays so we don’t put up one of our own. Although last year FMIL gave me a ton of antique ornaments from their tree, so maybe we should…

We always put up ours the Saturday after Thanksgiving. I would prefer to wait until after December 1, but my husband likes to put it up right after Thanksgiving. I’ll admit, the tradition is growing on me, especially since we’re always away a few days before, during and after Christmas.

Thanksgiving weekend for the tree. But my decorations are out now. I put them out this past weekend. Christmas is just over too quickly and I want to enjoy them.
