Decorated

Postby Sparkle2217 » Thu Nov 19, 2015 4:24 pm

Who's tree is up? Who has decorated already?

My tradition has always been to put my tree up and decorate on BF. Not a day sooner or a day later no matter how bad I get that itch to do it. I wait until BF

How about you?

Normally I do the same. I always light the house the day after Thanksgiving. However..I work myself sick because I put up so much. This has been a rough year so I decided to get stuff done gradually early so there is no rush. All 3 of the big trees are up and lit only 1 left for ornaments. Slowly getting all other deco put where it goes and this weekend the icicle lights and outdoor deco will go up but they prob won't be lit until Thanksgiving night. :D

My lights are up - have to do that before it gets really cold. But I turn them on Thanksgiving night.

I'm hoping to put my tree up over thanksgiving weekend but my schedule keeps filling up and if I don't get it done then it won't get done at all =/
Last year it didn't get put up because I was gone over Thanksgiving weekend.

We usually wait until Thanksgiving weekend to put up our tree, wreathes, stockings, lights, and other Christmas decor. However this year we won't be doing anything. Wife's not big on holidays, my kid has reached an age where she couldn't care less so long as there are gifts to open lol, and I've been spending more time at work vs home lately and that's about to get even crazier next month.

Our house is decorated, inside and out. I decorated the day after Halloween and have had it lit ever since.

Moo,

We have 5 trees up, only two are fully decorated so far, and just some of the indoor stuff, All the outdoor stuff needs to be dealt with
Just here to have fun, keep the bad guys out, and give the stray dogs a place to stay

No, the holidays are just the motivation. Has been needing painting for awhile and found paint at a good price earlier this year and just haven't done the painting yet.

Well, before BF turned into Thurs afternoon! We would eat Tday dinner, rest, then work on putting up the tree sometime that afternoon/evening. Now, it just varies, but typically sometime Thanksgiving weekend.
I don't know if we'll do much decorating outside, I need new lights, and just depends on extra $$ for it.
