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.

First or second weekend in November. It usually takes me the whole weekend to drag out the tree, put it up, decorations, etc.

I put one tree up in the middle of November, but don't turn on the lights until the second tree is put up the Friday after Thanksgiving, taking them down is a different story usually 1 stays up until the end of January.

I put out the decorations about a week or two before Christmas. We normally get the tree a week and a half before Christmas, so we have it for almost a month before the recycling people pick it up. Plus we prefer getting a real tree because of the fresh smell of pine. I love decorating the house but when I put the decorations up too early my folks don't like to look at them that long. I usually put out pine cones to really make the house smell like Christmas. But I don't put the table cloth on the kitchen and dining room tables until Christmas Eve, but they stay on until New Years Day. I normally put little snowmen, santa snow globes, two light up snowmen, some angels, a couple of tinsel Christmas trees, and some other stuff I can't remember around the house. The house always looks lovely though. I never decorate outside though. One year we had a wreath for the front door. I was thinking about buying another one but they cost just as much as Christmas trees now.

I always intend on leaving my harvest decor up until Thanksgiving but it never happens. I decorate for Christmas no later than the second week of November.

Not untill after Thanksgiving. We try to decorate the house to celebrate each individual holiday, IE... Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Just Halloween alone, it takes me several days to get all the lights, decorations, fog machines, strobes, etc... all hooked up and running, inside and outside the house and visa versa to take them down.

As a tradition, I like to watch Miracle on 34th street on Thanksgiving Day, because in the movie, they celebrate Thanksgiving and then there is also the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade when Santa arrives.

After Santa arrives, then the decorations come down from the attic and the Christmas season then starts for us... It usually take me about 5-6 days to get everything all up, lit and or running. However, I do keep my outside Christmas lights lit up to the last week in January... I'm the only one for miles around, that does so, but, not are they just lit, there is usually between 4-10,000 lights lit on my house, so it does really stand out just a bit..... Ho-Ho-Ho...
