When do you put your tree up? My best friend is putting hers up this weekend. I think she is crazy but what do I know. I usually drag mine out the weekend after Thanksgiving.

I usually put my tree up and start decorating the weekend after Thanksgiving, but it is never to early to start decorating. Christmas brings out the best in people.

Christmas Snowman
We usually put ours up the beginning of December, your friend is crazy hehe. My little neice has been bugging my sister to get the tree and decorations out...she's so anxious for Santa to come.

I like to celebrate the seasons/holidays as they arrive. I don't think I would celebrate July 4th before or with Easter, so by the same token I think Halloween and Thanksgiving should be celebrated before we think about Christmas celebrations. In My Humble Opion.

Wow, thats early to put it out this weekend. It has kind of become my own tradition to put the tree up thanksgiving night. It started because for a while I was single and living alone. I would get home from thanksgiving dinner and be bored and lonely. So I decided to put it up to pass the time(I use a fake tree). But I liked doing it that night, and Ive been in a relationship for 4 years now and its been the same way ever since.

I have been putting the tree just one day before Christmas Eve. But I want to put it much earlier than that...

We don't usually get one up until mid-December, if that early. I love it, but time slips away. One Thanksgiving we ate at my sister in law's house and after dinner she pulled out all of her decorations (the tree was already up but naked) and asked everyone to help her decorate it. I thought that was very forward thinking of her, but a little early for me.

We start decorating after Thanksgiving but the tree goes up two weeks before Christmas. Just enough time to still get a good tree and keep the tree fresh and healthy all the way through Christmas without getting too dried out.

We used to do it the day after Thanksgiving. I couldn't fathom doing it any earlier than that, but just this past week I've seen a couple of houses that already have lights up and on! UGH! LOL Of course, the last couple of years I haven't bothered to put a tree or any decorations up at all... too much effort for no real reason(for me).

LOL, I have to put one up for my kids, they love it, and I think it's fun once I get the tree out. This tree up before Halloween thing has me baffled!

That's when I usually put my Christmas tree up, is right after ThanksGiving. Sometimes even later than that.

We ususally don't put our christmas tree up until December 1st at the earliest. I don't think that I could put mine up before halloween had even passed.

Thanks for the reply, I agree with you. I dread putting it up. Once I get into it, I love decorating it but I cannot get the Christmas bug this early. BTW, cute dog, is it yours?
