    Probably right after thanksgiving. I grew up with Christmas being major for us. I have only put up a tree once since. But my kids are now 6 and 7 and I think it’s taking away from them so I have decided to start this year with the tree and gifts thing. So yeah, I am planning on right after TG.

    My Darling Husband was begging me to put the tree up last weekend! That’s too early for me. I told him to wait until the weekend before Thanksgiving and I’d cave to putting it up before Thanksgiving for the first time. 🙂

    Well, Canadian Thanksgiving was near the beginning of October, so that’d be a little early. Usually near the end of November, but I can’t really place the timing in relation to American Thanksgiving because that has no effect on it.

    tl;dr, End of November, didn’t know which poll option to pick.

    Day after Thanksgiving for decorations at my husband’s request, but I’m well into my shopping and am already listening to Christmas Pandora at work. 🙂

    I feel very strongly about waiting until after Thanksgiving.  For me, it just makes it way more fun and exciting and never gives me a chance to get tired of it or bored.  I feel like it’s pushed down my throat everywhere else right after Halloween, so I keep my own personal decorations for later.

    We always go the first weekend in December. So this year we’re not going until the 6th(!) which I feel like is late…But we go with another couple and I don’t want to be the crazy one asking to go earlier…

    I am a UK bee so not sure when thanksgiving is, but we usually put ours up on the weekend closest to the 25th of November which this year will be the 28th 🙂

    Growing up we could never do it until after my brothers birthday the first week of December. The last few years though we have done it the weekend after thanksgiving. This year I’m pushing it back to the first week of December. Any earlier and by Christmas I’m sick of seeing it all, sick of taking care of the tree etc. It just seems less exciting when Christmas finally gets here If we do it to early.

    Gemstone:  I cant wait till I can start listening to my christmas pandora station at work!! I dont want to start playing it too early, so I’m trying to hold out as long as possible…I think the Friday before thanksgiving is gonna be the day!!

    Usually we get our tree the weekend following thanksgiving, but we are moving (closing dec 4th) so now we gotta wait to get the tree until mid-december noooo!!
