My tree is up!!

Well not exactly haha (got you all there didnt I) Ive actually put up my Christmas Tree......windchime!! Its hanging proudly from my Kitchen window.
My real tree, well my artificial Scandanavian Spruce Tree will go up in about 7 weeks time!! Arghh! I cant wait!! Im really excited. 7 weeks is not long away, and for some who might think its early...well, I dont like going through all that effort for a few weeks, I love to leave the decorations up a bit longer.
Does anyone here actually put their Tree up on Christmas Eve?

I start putting stuff up on Nov. 1st but my big tree usually goes up either the day before Thanksgiving or the day after. I use that whole weekend after Thanksgiving to finish up my decorating.
