I don't think we will have a tree this year. We moved into a new house last year and there isn't any room for a tree. That is the only thing I don't like about this house. Maybe we'll think of something. We will have a good Christmas either way.

i know my house isn't big either but i have a spot for mine but what about like a table top tree or one on the porch  and i no the feeling i got a cat and she used to climb the tree or get on top of the presents but she is getting old now so she doesn't do it any more

I know you all will think I'm crazy but I put my tree up after my sons birthday on Nov 8th.  I love it!!  My shopping is done and wrapped and now I sit back and enjoy!

we won't be putting up a big tree this year the puppies are just to much energy so i found a tree you hang on the wall and it has lights and bells on it and we will probably put it up sometime this week --i have not a clue what we are going to do about the presents yet --the kids have very large stockings that they put up hopefully the fur babies won't rip them down!!

I usually don't put up a tree or decorate the house for Christmas because I just do not bother about putting one up. But I love to see other Christmas trees and decorations on other houses.

I don't think I will bother decorating my place for christmas this year. I don't have very much christmas decoration anyways. Maybe, I will decorate my place next year if I have more christmas decoration by then.

We usually do all of our Christmas decorations the day after Thanksgiving but are on hold.  It is a family event and my wife just had foot surgery. There is a certain reverance and family camaraderie that goes with putting the decorations on the tree and it just wouldn't be right doing this with out my wife's involvement.  My wife should be somewhat mobile in a week or two so I think the rest of the family shall bide it's time, patiently, until Mommy is better.  We do have the wine chilling so that the holiday spirits glow a little more heartily!  I may put up the exterior decorations this afternoon...after I kill off a little work...gotta keep making cash!

We decorate for Thanksgiving and go cut the tree down around the 2nd weekend in Dec.  That way it stays fresh till New Year!

we put up the lights outside sometime before Thanksgiving depending on the weather...pick a nice warm day to do it so we are not waiting till it gets cold to do it...BUT we don't turn the lights on until Thanksgiving night for the first time...then every night till New Years.    The hubby says the "holiday police" arrest you if you have on lights too early....In other words...he (and I agree) having lights on too early is just tacky.  But when it is time to turn them on...look out...I just know he has a Griswald in his family tree somewhere.  LOL

I put mine up Friday.  My sister sent me a new tree for a housewarming gift.  I was a little startled when I opened it, but I decided I could try anything once.

The day after Thanksgiving the decrations go up and the lights go on. Love to decorate and buy more stuff every year after Christmas when it goes on sale to add to the next year.

I usually put up our tree the 2nd week in December. I am more in the Christmas spirit, then and I am usually doing Black Friday shopping during the Thanksgiving weekend. I am just not ready for Christmas until the first of December. I have to be in the mood to decorate and drag everything out.

Ever since my mom died...  Actually, now that I think about it, even before that we really didn't put up a tree.  We just kind of stopped once my sister and I got older.  Now, we really just don't bother.  Seems like too much of a hassle and for me, that's not what the holiday is really about anyway.

We usually put our tree up on Thanksgiving and then the rest of the decor over the next few days.

 ;D Hahahahhahaa that's so funny. I have slways liked having my tree up nearing Christmas but I like the decorations to stay up till around the end of January. I used to take care of a pitbull puppy around Christmas, he never messed with it but I guess cats are more curious.... maybe that's where the saying 'curiosity killed the cat' came from. NOT SYING YOUR CATS ARE GOING TO DIE but just making vain connections  :)  :cat:

I've never had a set time/date for decorating, but it was usually around mid November that I'd get started. This year though, I didn't put anything up until a few days after Thanksgiving. I didn't put much up this year, and I don't have a tree either. :/
