We try to put up the tree and decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving. Our tree was up yesterday and we'll finish with decorations today.

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.

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 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.

My tree is up 365 days a year.  I just change the decoration for the season or the holiday.
