Where did this tradition start and why has it continued? Do you do it?

I don't really know the facts, but I think it just makes sense to do it on the first because christmas is only one day and that way you get to be merry the moment December starts.

My daughter put the tree up on the 3Rd. I was not putting it up at all. I am so tired of all the decorating.
