My Merry Christmas Announcement

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.

Our tree was proudly erected and decorated yesterday (08/11/2008).
I like to do it on a day when I have plenty of time to relax and enjoy.
My little boy was such a "big helper. I wish I could post a pic!

My tree usually goes up the first weekend in Nov. But we were a little late this year being 2 weekends into Nov. My best friend needed a tree and I moved and don't have the room for my "BIG" tree so I waited to dig it all out till she was ready. But that's ok it's up and pretty!!!!

We have an artificial tree that we stumbled upon after the holidays a few years ago that we decided to put up early this year. (a couple of weeks ago!) but for the most part we don't get our real tree until the middle of December. Any earlier and it'll be dry as a bone by Christmas, nevermind New Years.

I see no point in having a Christmas tree up if it'll only been up for a few weeks.

I try and have the Christmas tree up as early as possible, I'll be getting the tree out of the attic (without notice to anybody else!) on the 1st December or any day near to that my Mum is off work, and we'll be setting it up.

I'll try and get the tree setup earlier (maybe today) if I can persuade my Mum to help ... great fun setting it up

edit: just spoke to her, will be setup on sunday...

Christmas tree goes up the day after thanksgiving and stays up through new years day. I usually clean real good the week before thanksgiving and pack up all of the stuff sitting around to make room for my christmas stuff. Then went I get home from shopping on black friday I can get all of the christmas stuff out and decorate pretty quick. I have been known to stay up all night after thanksgiving dinner and put it all out so it is there when everyone wakes up friday morning.
