Ours usually goes up around the first weekend. I decorate the day after Thanksgiving and growing up it went up on that day. Rick (my husband) grew up putting it up the week of Christmas. I couldn't wait that long so we compromised on the tree. He knows how much I love this time of year. He loathes it....only because of work. He's a jeweler and is quite busy at that time of the year, usually. We'll see what happens this year. Right now, he's a lot slower than normal. I hope it picks up just to make him happy. He'll come around with the spirit on Christmas Eve.
A Beary Merry Christmas to all!
