    We start a bit after Thanksgiving, around the end of November/beginning of December. We like to give Thanksgiving some celebration before we skip right into Christmas.

    Last year it was right after Halloween, this year we’re going to wait until Black Friday.

    When my house is reasonably clean, and I have the motivation.

    None of the above… it normally falls between Thanksgiving and Dec1. But we put all of our decorations up on the first day of Advent (or the eve of). Which is awesome because sometimes it ends up being my bday ๐Ÿ˜€ So this year that’s December 2nd or the night before.

    I’m going to hopefully start decorating on Black Friday, depending upon how tired I am from working.

    My husband doesn’t like it when the holidays overlap too much, but he’s fine with me going Christmas crazy as soon as Thanksgiving is over. If it were up to me, I’d like to have Christmas decorations up just before Thanksgiving, as it all feels like the holiday season. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The outside lights will be going up soon (before it gets too cold) but we probably won’t turn them on until around Thanksgiving. The inside stuff will probably get done Thanksgiving weekend.

    None of the above.  We are decorating this weekend, so it’s not right after Halloween but it’s also earlier than Thanksgiving.  We take everything down on Jan 1 though.  I get sick of Christmas stuff after Christmas!!

    I wish it was now!!  Fiance is very much against that as he loves thanksgiving.  I grew up in a foreign household so we didnt do thanksgiving.  Im shooting for black friday/that weekend.

    None of the above.. the answer is never!!  FI and I are both too lazy to decorate LoL.  Last year we had a tiny tree but this year we probably won’t even have one (too risky for our rabbit to eat it).

    Last year my parents house wasn’t decorated until the 23rd (of december) because no one was motivated to do it so they waited until I got home for break. They claimed it was because I would be upset if I didn’t get to decorate the tree, but they hadn’t even purchased a tree. I like decorating but I would have been perfectly content to bake cookies instead. Idk when they will decorate this year since I’m not going home. (Stupid job makes me work christmas eve and I live several states away from my family.)

    I always start right after Thanksgiving, either black Friday or sometime during the weekend.  If I had my way I would start sooner though ๐Ÿ˜›  I’ve been planning my holiday decor since early October (we’re in a new larger home this year so I have a lot more space to decorate).
