We usually decorate the weekend before Thanksgiving - but this year my sister and her family are moving that weekend and they need us to help them so I'll either be putting it up the weekend after Thanksgiving or The weekend of the 12-13th.

I'm happy to help my sister but boy do I hate it when my Christmas traditions get messed with!

I'll be building my tree and putting my Advent Cals and trees out on the 30th November. We decorate properly on the 1st December and it stays decorated until the 6th January. I can't wait!!!!

I'm at university now, so the family will have to go a head and decorate with out me. Though today i'm going to buy a festive apple cinnamon plug-in air freshener for my room. A subtle christmassy contribution to my room but gets me excited none the less. Also my room seems to have a permanent smell of beer now so i hope this gets rid of it aha. Student life

I put my fall decorations up around the first of Oct, then as soon as we get home from Thanksgiving dinner, those go down and the tree goes up! My mother always did that, well, still does, so I am following a family tradition. It usually take the whole Thanksgiving weekend to get everything done. My outside nativity scene I usually put up this weekend or next, living in midwest I don't trust the weather to hold out. But I usually don't light it until Thanksgiving night.

I will begin putting a few small decorations up now, but the bulk of them wait until the day after Thanksgiving.

My Fall decorations are still up (fuzzy pumpkins, cinnamon broom, and "welcome" scarecrow sign) but next weekend they'll be put away and I'll drag out the Christmas decorations and tree! My sister will be in town visiting me around that time and has offered to help.

The furniture gets rearranged and tree goes up the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Sun through Thanksgiving morning, the tree gets fluffed and the fall stuff comes down. The train is put out around the tree and the snow, houses etc under it sometime during the week. My 7yo loves to play with the train and begs relentlessly until we get it set up. Then on Thanksgiving night the ornaments go on and we turn the lights on the tree. We finish decorating on Black Friday.
