I’m going to the Michael’s black friday sale and I’m sure I’ll be a decorating crazy person the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Given the fact that when I walk into Walmart it already has a huge “Merry Christmas” banner, I don’t think it’s too early for you to start decorating!

Yule is the 21st of December, so I’m probably going to get started on decorating later this month, so that we have time to enjoy the decorations. I would say maybe just after Thanksgiving – wow, never thought I’d say that! But, our first married Yule has to be really special.

LOL  I dont think its too early!  I’ve been saying for a week that our house is going to “vomit” christmas this weekend!  We’re doing inside, AND outside!  I don’t care what the neighbors think…..but then again, I’d leave Christmas stuff up all year round if he didn’t make me take them down!

I always wait until after Thanksgiving – to me the day after Thanksgiving is the day to start decorating for Christmas!! However my husband is Jewish so well have to compromise this year on what we are putting up – I think just lights and maybe I’ll get some wintery decorations πŸ™‚

I…um…may have already put my Xmas tree and decorations up last week. πŸ™‚

 

Its not my fault! The holidays are so exciting this year because:

a) its our first xmas in our new, big house

b) as such, we got a new big tree. a 7.5 footer! Ive always wanted one this big but my Mom refused to get one any bigger than her crappy 4′ tree!

c) our daughter is 2 this xmas and understands who santa is (well….she can identify him in photos at least lol) and she loves lights so I know she’s going to love the tree (my mom has her this week so she hasnt had a chance to see the tree yet)

d) our last xmas sucked because my fiance was in the hospital so we didnt even get to spend that much time together.

I still live with my parents (saving $$), and we actually put everything up a few days ago. Usually we wait until the day after Thanksgiving, but my sister and her husband rotate holidays, and we only get them for Thanksgiving this year. Thus, we’re squishing both holidays into two days. πŸ˜›

We’re planning on decorating the weekend before Thanksgiving (I can’t BELIEVE that’s next weekend!).  If it were up to me, we’d already have the house decorated!  I think I may be keeping Marshalls/Target/Macys in business with the amount of decorations we’ve purchased this year.  I’m feeling festive πŸ™‚

We’re going to put up our outdoor decorations/lights this weekend, before it gets too cold. We won’t turn them on until Dec. 1st though! We’re going to decorate inside and put up our tree on the 4th πŸ™‚

I don’t think there is a definete rule on when to start decorating but I think you need to get through Thanksgiving first. The day after Thanksgiving we are going to go shopping for our tree and swicth out our fall decoration for Xmas decorations.
