    I would love to get ours up here right away, but we have been SO busy!  Plus, us Canadians don’t get the long weekend like our American friends do!  Hopefully, we can get our tree up in another week or two!  I am definitely listening to Christmas music right now!

    I usually try and put most of the tree up on Black Friday, and hide from all the insanity outside.

    Other – we don’t have a tree.  We’re Jewish, and also very, very lazy when it comes to home decorating.

    Nope. We always do it Dec. 1st. So we get 25 days of christmas. It just feels most appropriate to me. Although, there is lots of snow right now, so it is suitable. I just don’t want to get “sick” of christmas before it arrives!

    Nope – I refuse to put up X-mas decoration until after Thanksgiving!  But come this weekend, all is fair game!

    We are getting a real tree this year, so we are waiting until December to go chop it down. But when we put up our fake tree its almost always up the first week of november!!! its too pretty to only have up for a month

    Ours has been up for about a week. I have been buying ornaments for the last two years so I was very excited to finally see our first tree all put together. We are spending a lot of time away from home between Thanksgiving and Christmas so I thought that we might need a little more time to enjoy it πŸ™‚

    I always spend the night after Thanksgiving decorating.  My Fiance doesn’t get as into it as I do, but he puts up with the loud Christmas music and boxes of stuff everywhere for a few hours.  πŸ™‚

    I also work in a floral shop that sells gifts and we start decorating the day after Halloween.  I’m ok with waiting a while to put everything together in my house, I’m surrounded by Christmas items Mon-Sat!

    For the ladies who already have your trees up, are yours real or fake?

    We always get a real tree, and they become brittle and lose their scent if they are put up too early, so we normally wait until the second week in December to get our tree. (I think they may also be more prone to catching on fire if they are set up too soon.)

    We do put the Christmas lights on our house (and my parents’ house) Thanksgiving weekend.

    My family tradition is to put up Christmas decorations starting the day after Thanksgiving…however…

    Fiance and I just moved, and all the boxes were already out…and we said, why not? Our trees are fake so no worries about them falling apart!

    Great looking tree! Considering we’ve already had our “thanks for turkey day” in Canada, our tree won’t be up for it. I’m hoping that we’ll be putting ours up this weekend though, and I’ve always had a fake tree.
