When do you put your tree up?

This year we're planning on putting it up the day after Thanksgiving since we're getting an artificial tree. But we usually put it up about two weeks into December.

Here it's kind of a tradition to put it up on december 8th, which is some religious day I can't really translate into English, sorry about that. But it has to do with St. Mary and it's near Christmas, so everybody puts the tree up on that day... And then we put it down on February the 6th, when the tree wise kings come to visit baby jesus. (sorry I don't know how to translate that either) What about you? Do you have similar traditions? When do you put the tree down? =)

When I lived with my parents, we put the tree up on the 8th also, since they were Catholic and took it down on or right after January 6th, Three Kings day (Reyes). Since I've been married we don't have a 'set date' to put up the tree, but this year we are trying to start a new tradition with and for our little baby, so hopefully if all goes well, it'll be set up the day after Thanksgiving - November 23rd. And we still take the tree down after Reyes - My husbands Birthday.

I think that even when our kids are all gone and have their own families, i'd still enjoy putting a tree up. I just love decorating trees too much. Thanks for your post, marciascott

I think i'd do the same thing, just like I posted before. I love the Christmas season and I don't think i'd be able to not put anything up.

My tree has been up for over a week. In fact a week ago tomorrow we had to have our Christmas...or part of it so the decorations needed to be up! I enjoy them anyway so it was fun to have extra time!

We put ours up the Friday after Thanksgiving. I still haven't put out the entire decoration lot, but I'm planning on doing that on Saturday, when my husband and my son are at my in laws.
