I know it's early but for some reason this year I feel like putting my tree up sooner. I usually do it Thanksgiving weekend. When is everyone else putting their tree up this year?

I am thinking of putting mine up this weekend since I have a three day weekend. I have already starting putting christmas lights outside. Not going to turn them on until after Thanksgiving.

I usually do it on Black Friday! Although, I want to decorate already, too! Maybe I'll bring out the mini tree for my desk. ;)

I would do it now, but we're a live tree only family. I could never talk DH into artificial (probably because he knows I'd put the tree up as soon as Halloween was over!).

I just told my husband that I'd like to put it up this weekend. The boys are out of school Friday so they can help me get it up and then we can all decorate it Saturday evening.

My little one's birthday is November 24th, so after that some time. We do refer to it as her tree though because we had to buy it due to her allergies, we were always a live tree family until we were forced otherwise, so we have talked about putting it up for her birthday since it is her tree, but I want her to feel like she has her birthday all to herself and not a Christmas thing, so we probably won't.

We put ours up the second week of December. It's live and would be a fire hazard to put it up earlier, plus I get sick of it by the day after xmas I take it down.

we usually put ours up the first weekend in december sometimes the second weekend. Gonna definitely have to put it up that first weekend this year since I'm having surgery on my foot on the 12th :( but it will already be down out of the attic cause I need it to hang ornaments at the craft show i'm doing 11/19 lol ... who knows since its already out maybe we'll put it up sooner ;) it'll be interesting this year to see how the doggie does (last year we still had his crate out but he's done so well this year we've put that away)

My tree is up... Acutually, It has been up for three years. :gdclap: We usually take it down around New Years, but my daughter was having a party and asked if we could leave it up. Every time since then, either her or hubby stop me. Her friends love it. They will come over and turn the lights on and sit and chat. Weird, I know, but sometimes, I will just look at it and remember little glimpses of past holidays. Then, I can't bring my self to take it down either. It is now part of the dusting routine.

We usually put it up the Saturday after Thanksgiving but we're going to Disney World the Monday after Thanksgiving this year so it will be up around the 9th when we get back.

I just finished putting my lights up outside. I won't turn them on until Thanksgiving. I'm thinking about putting the tree up tomorrow. I know it's early, but I'm so in the mood. I love christmas lights.

I am the opposite, my birthday is November 23rd (dh is actually Nov. 24th) and I use my birthday as an excuse to get the tree up. I love having it up, always have. We usually put it up the weekend before my birthday so I can enjoy the whole house decorated on my birthday. We will be doing ours next weekend to keep w/ that tradition.
