Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

Weather permitting, the outside lights will go up the first weekend in October. All remaining decorating will be spread across Thanksgiving week. There is something satisfying about hanging the lights when it is still so pleasant out there.

Christmas Tree

I will do the outside while the weather is nice, then the inside is started the day after Thanksgiving. The outside lights are turned on the day after Thanksgiving.

I have always decorated the inside (tree goes up) first day of Buck season for it helps to keep my mind off the fact that hubby, grandsons and son-in-laws are out in the woods. But I don't do everything in one day, it takes a couple of days.

Ddeby has shown a merry disposition
That's about when I start as well, although I don't pick a day out ahead of time. I just wait till the urge hits me....but it's always before Thanksgiving!

I just put up my fall and Halloween decorations yesterday, so I'm in the festive spirit now.
