When Do You Decorate?


OK well at the risk of making you all think I must be insane.... I am seriously debating putting up my Christmas tree this weekend and decorating the house. By decorating the house I mean the inside. I will wait a bit to do the outside I would hate for the neighbor's to think I am crazy ;)

So I was just curious when do you decorate? Normally we do it a few days before or after Thanksgiving. I have just caught the spirit early this year and figured since I have a fake tree who is it going to hurt if I decorate now.

I love Christmas but since we moved to Florida it's so hard for me to get in the spirit fully with all this darn hot weather. I want my snow!! So I figure if I decorate now and keep the A/C down real low (lol) maybe it will feel like Christmas for me again...

What do you think am I insane? Go ahead you can say it ;)

When I lived with my mom in Oklahoma, we would usuall wait til after my birthdy (Nov. 14th) to put up the tree. That way we weren't trying to mess wit it around Thanksgiving (when we were trying to cook a ton of food for about 3 families) or during December (which is when we all started to worry about what to get for each other).

I know what you mean about it being hard to get into the spirit. I lived in Oklahoma for 18 years, then moved to Florida. This will be my second Christmas without any ice or snow. The weather really did get me into the spirit of the Holidays. I may just "steal" your idea of freezing out the house! :)

Honestly we put our up anytime after November 1. One year I was so excited for Christmas (okay that is every year but that one was crazy excited) I put it up on Halloween. We put our tree up yesterday.

2 years in a row I was so bummed for some reason that I put up my Christmas tree in October. It made me happy. Usually I wait until Thanksgiving, but I almost always wait to take it down until Valentine's.

I say DO IT!! I can't wait to decorate either! Last Christmas Natalie was only 2 months old so she had no idea what was going on. I can't wait to see how she reacts to the tree this year!! Hopefully she won't try to eat anything off of it! LOL

We also decorate the weekend of Thanksgiving and leave it up until the day after New Years.
