We have a two neighbours who put there trees up right after halloween, itwas after a few years of calling them nutters that I found out they are both American and put their trees up for Thanksgiving. I think the first week of Dec is plenty of time, might even leave it a bit laterNovember 10, 2008 at 7:08 pm #67050alibe1Member
I would say a reasonable time to put up the tree would be anytime after November 25, right? Or would you think that is too early?November 11, 2008 at 10:57 am #67062YvonneMember
That very early! As much as I love Christmas, its a bit early! We usually put ours up the first weekend in December, probably around the 6th/7th this year… love putting it up!!!November 11, 2008 at 11:05 am #67063ellokitteeMember
American here, we are ALWAYS the first to put our decorations up in our estate (the LOOKS I’ve gotten, you’d think I was breaking a law or something LOL), we do it the weekend after Thanksgiving, can’t shake that tradition I’ve grown up with. I think its great that people decorate earlier and earlier every year, who doesn’t feel warm and fuzzy feelings when looking at twinkling Christmas lights? Puts everyone in a great festive mood. Going next week to buy a fullsized tree, as DD is at the age to appreciate Christmas for the first time this year, no more table-top trees! I’m so excited, isn’t it great how kids bring the magic of Christmas back for us?November 13, 2008 at 10:07 am #67094GismoMember
I love when the Christmas tree goes up. I will be putting it up the first week in december and i really can’t wait as we have 3 of them to put up this year. One for the play room one for the sitting room and one for the dining room (only a small one).
I can’t wait 😀November 17, 2008 at 2:16 pm #67172munchinParticipant
