    Question How soon?

    Advertisements
    In your opinion, how soon is too soon to put up Christmas lights and/or Your Christmas tree / decorations?

    I wanted to start putting stuff up this weekend, but Thomas thought it was crazy to start before Thanksgiving.

    My neighbors started putting theirs up right after Halloween.

    Eta: Realized I didn't answer your question!

    I think anytime before Thanksgiving is too early.

    We always did it the weekend after Thanksgiving growing up. DH thinks even THAT is too soon...too bad for him I'm the one that does the decorating . So, it's happening the weekend after Thanksgiving.
    Put on your big girl panties and deal with it like a boss.

    My tree is up. As soon as I get to a craft store I'm making a wreath and I think I'm starting my mantle tomorrow. Been shopping for a nativity set for a couple of weeks, and I'm picking up a second Christmas tree soon. We'll wait til after Thanksgiving to do anything outside in case our neighbours are early-decorator haters, but I want everything in my house up nowwwww.
