Thanksgiving weekend! With thanksgiving and Christmas being exactly a month apart, that will leave enough time. We will probably put everything up outside earlier (as weather permits).

I am aiming for TG weekend, just hoping my 2 kittens don't knock it over and/or destroy it. They are wild, especially at night!

Normally ours goes up the week after Thanksgiving. Last year the lights on it were acting odd and took some tinkering to get them to work so this year it's going up the weekend before Thanksgiving. That should give me time to find out if I need to replace it on BF or not.

The weekend before Thanksgiving, if not before. I'm always out of town Thanksgiving weekend so I love coming back home to a decorated house.

Hopefully, Thanksgiving weekend. The outside will take longer this year as we had to take down all the ice sickle lights when we had the siding painted.

I put up two trees and I think I want to change the color scheme on the main one this year; off to Pinterest for some ideas!

I will put mine up Thanksgiving weekend.  Hopefully my son and his friend are in their own apartment by then, so I have their rooms to move stuff that's currently in my way.  (Yes, I know, that blows my "mother of the year" award. LOL).

November 12th...... Always the weekend after my son's birthday..... When he was young he would always ask when Christmas was and I would tell him that it was after his birthday. So just as soon as his birthday was over on the 7th he would say MOOOOM..... It's Cwistmas!!!!

Hopefully Thanksgiving weekend - my daughter will be home from college that weekend so I'd like to put it up while she's there. This is her first year away, and I'd like her to still feel as included as possible. BUT, we get a real tree, and being that we'll be driving home to Indiana from my grandpa's in Michigan that Saturday - it will be interesting to see if it all works out the way it does in my head :unsure:

We have started trying to determine what place we are going to go out to this year to cut our tree down. :)

We'll probably get it on Dec 10 after my husband's company Christmas party. We can't put it up too early because we'll kill the poor thing.

Years ago when I would get a real tree every year, I would get it on December 1, but now since I have an artificial tree, it goes up on BF for decoration on Saturday. This year we will be in GA for Thanksgiving, so it will go up a day later when we return on Saturday and we'll decorate on Sunday.

Probably the weekend before Thanksgiving. It's nice to come back from the Thanksgiving festivities with it up and ready to go!

I'll help my parents put theirs up probably the weekend before Thanksgiving. My DH doesn't do Christmas so I just enjoy theirs. DD13 has one for her room though and that will go up the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

We usually put our tree and decorations up on Thanksgiving night, however with our busy schedules it's going up next weekend.

I like to go to the tree farm the first weekend in December. It's not as busy & the employees have their opening weekend "rehearsal" out of the way. All of the other Christmas decorations are brought out Thanksgiving weekend.
