    Ugh I'm not! Decorating is like ... it makes me anxious. I feel like I'm not good at it and all the stuff registers in my mind as clutter. Like I'm afraid I'm going to turn into one of those people who buys dedicated storage units for all their seasonal "stuff." So I try to keep it to a minimum but there's really no way to get around it for Christmas ... this year we're buying a new tree so I'm gonna try to put it off as long as possible.

    No . We won't be able to go home for Christmas . This will be our first Christmas away from family, and they are pretty upset. Dh is taking it better than I am .

    We usually wait until after Thanksgiving but I didn't decorate much for Halloween this year so I doubt I'll decorate much for Christmas. It's different with DH being gone. Plus I'm scared of heights so I think the extent of my outside decorating might just be wrapping lights around the porch rails. I haven't decided yet.

    I am nervous about the Christmas tree this year because it's the first Christmas for my kitty

    I want to but I also don't want to have to store all that seasonal stuff somewhere. I love Halloween and I didn't decorate for it, so I'll probably skip Christmas, too.

    In my family we always put up the tree and decorations the weekend before christmas. I have never heard of anyone putting up decorations in October...till now. I would never put them up till it's at least the beginning of December.

    It's my first Christmas in my apartment.

    I have a table top decoration that lights up and it says, "Merry Christmas". Other than that, I don't know what else to put in.

    I don't want to go too crazy as I only have a studio and I try to have a minimalistic look/feel.

    I have to google for some ideas
