I have still have our Halloween decorations up (need to take down – tonight maybe?) and about half of our Thanksgiving decorations up. I’ll start putting up Christmas decorations after Thanksgiving. We’ll probably get a tree the first weekend in December.

I don’t decorate for Christmas until mid-December. I get a real tree and keep it up until Epiphany, so it would be all dried out if I started on it now. Plus I get so sick of looking at my decorations if they’re up for more than a couple weeks… I am kind of a minimalist when it comes to decor ha. I still have my carved pumpkins on the porch until garbage day (tomorrow), and I have mums and a few mini pumpkins/gourds around the house that I’ll leave until after Thanksgiving, or in the case of the mums, until I kill them.

My tree goes up right after my birthday which is November 7th.  This year i am having  a tree decorating party on the 15th of Nov. and that’s when the tree goes up.  I usually don’t take my tree down until around valentines day. I just love looking at all the lights and decorations.

Last year we didn’t put up any decorations, but I want to make sure we are doing it up this year. We celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah so double decorations!

wedding08.2015:  Although I LOVE Christmas, I wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate. I actually took November 30 off of work JUST to decorate. 🙂

Growing up, we used to decorate the tree Thanksgiving evening. That changed when we stopped having Thanksgiving at my parents place and I don’t really help with their place anymore. So, I’ll do mine as soon as I can after.

I just have Thanksgiving/Fall stuff up now, after taking down the Halloween things last weekend.

I will be decorating probably next weekend because I cannot wait until the day after Thanksgiving. The day after leaves less than a month of Christmas…..can’t have that.

wedding08.2015:  I wish! I told the hubs we could put up the tree and decorate it with fall garland for thanksgiving and he thought I was crazy! 

I still have some sparkly skeletons hanging around the house from Halloween so I should probably put those away first! I worried I’ll get too busy and not have time to decorate after Thanksgiving!
