Awesome! That's some willpower waiting until the 12th before turning them on, if I put mine up I think I would crack before then!

How awesome is your hubby?? It is 70 degrees here in Cleveland, Ohio and it would be a PERFECT day to put up the lights but MY hubby said NO!! I understand- I told him I wouldn't turn them on 'till Thanksgiving- but he knows me better than that!!

THAT would never happen here. My hubby will put them up on the Sunday before Thanksgiving or maybe the day before. Who knows. I have seen one or two trees. If it was just me, I think I'd put it up a bit sooner but since I've had a back problem, I need a little help. It's an exciting time, for sure!

I don't think I would have the will power to wait. If they were up I would want them on.

Lucky!

I cannot wait to get ours put up. End of next week. Homeowner's association will not allow until then.

Awesome!

Winter stuff is going up this Weds and hubby mentioned if it was a nice weekend, he'd get the lights up...Last year he did it while the water in the gutters were frozen, he didn't like that...LOL. So he's going for earlier this year.

I do not like this warm weather in November. It snowed last Thursday and I was totally in the spirit! Snow again would help

Why is the 12th the magic # to turn them on?
