I wait to decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving.  I like to make sure that Thanksgiving gets its own day (hello, that holiday has the best food!) and, at least in my home, isn’t overshadowed by Christmas stuff.

I usually start my Christmas decorating the weekend of Thanksgiving. We go that Saturday and buy a tree. But since this is the first year as a married couple,  DH and I will be in OUR house for the holidays I’m sure my stepdaughter (9) will want us to start way earlier! lol

If my husband could he would start decorating for Christmas weeks ago but I make him wait till the day after Thanksgiving.  He’s already started listening to Christmas music…..

In Italy is considered bad luck decorating before 8 december (the Feast of the Immaculate Conception), so usually 8 dec. is the day in which everybody adorn.

The only holiday we decorate for is Christmas, and we don’t put up any decorations or get the tree until the day after thanksgiving.

At my parents’ house we used to decorate while eating leftover turkey sandwiches ..I used to look forward to that more than Thanksgiving itself sometimes haha. Now, my husband & I (mostly me actually haha) just decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving with beer and football.

We usually decorate a little bit before Thanksgiving, but we’re also typically out of town for a month in December, so we like to get things up early so we can appreciate them before we leave, lol!

It varies, but a one holiday at a time kinda thing.  Christmas lights might be up on the house as doing so later is more difficult due to snow & ice, but otherwise we don’t have Christmas stuff up until after Remembrance Day and it’s typically closer to Dec when we start.
