Is it too early?

Nutcrackers December 2008

I am very tempted to put up a few outdoor holiday decorations for Will's entertainment. I just can't bear to put up any decorations in the house yet, this is a bit too early if you ask me.
We usually put our tree up around Thanksgiving weekend.

When do you put up your holiday decorations?

P.S. While you are here please enter my Twilight/New Moon countdown giveaways

My husband put the lights up outside on Nov 1 (it was a nice day) but they haven't been turned on yet. He turns them on after the Santa Claus parade (this weekend). Inside decorations don't come out til Dec 1.
I'm in Canada so our thanksgiving was last month - otherwise I would think after that.

I usually put mine up after Thanksgiving. If you would like to come and add your giveaways to my Round Robin that would be great.

Seems like every year I put up less and less, mostly because I hate putting it all away.

We usually do it the weekend after Thanksgiving or as soon as we have all the kids for the weekend.

We begin decorating the day after Thanksgiving.

If I had my way I would have my husband put up the Christmas Lights now. I wouldn't turn them on till after Thanksgiving. My husband says no Christmas Decorations until after December 1. LOL

I usually try to have the Christmas decorations going up the day after Thanksgiving but this year it will be later as we won't even be in the same state!

Nicole said...

Literally - am dreading the Christmas stuff!! I'm OCD about everything in ITS place!! My kids are already asking when can we put the "stuff" up. I never used to do anything until a week prior to Christmas. Last year we did it the weekend of Thanksgiving - which we will likely do again - but the mess - agh - the mess kills me!

I am so ready but I have to wait until after dinner on Thanksgiving.
That is when my husband and the adult men will put up my 9ft. very heavy tree.

We compromise every year... I like to put things up 'near' Thanksgiving but they have to stay up until after Jan 6th... DH doesn't like things up past 1/1... so instead we put things up 2 wks before Christmas and they stay up until after 1/6. But I won't buy decorations and whatnot in the stores untl the day after Thanksgiving...

It's not too early. ;) It's usually so much work that its sad to have it up for only a short time. I always decorate December 1st but this year I think I will the day after T-giving.

Funny you mention that. I was driving my son to a sleepover last night and we saw like 20 houses fully decorated for Christmas. Lit up and everything! I was like "WAAAT?" Usually we do it the day before a big windstorm after thanksgiving . But whenever high winds are expected, lol.

We decorate Thanksgiving weekend to get the most out of our decorations.
