Christmas Question ~ Day 6

6. When do you put up your decorations? When do they come down?

ASAP ~ This year I actually got a few things out before Thanksgiving...because it was so late in the year and I just knew it would feel really rushed getting it all put up.  Usually though, the weekend after Thanksgiving is when the decorations start going up.  And I have to tell you that as soon as the last Christmas function is complete at our house...usually by New Year's Day....the Christmas decorations HAVE to come down.  As much as I love them I just need them to be put back away in a timely manner!

Before Thanksgiving! I really like to have all of Thanksgiving break to just hang out and relax as a family. But I agree with Sara, my decs come down as soon as Christmas is over!

FOR sure. .before Thanksgiving!! Usually the weekend before. .I USED to put up my snowmen by Nov 1st but I have mellowed out since then. .I also used to crack my holiday tunes in September too!! The Christmas comes down as I watch the Rose Bowl parade on Jan 1. .and the snow fellows stay out until February early March. .when I am eager to put out spring!!

They have never been up before Thanksgiving; that's more of a 'I don't have time' issue than a 'we will not overlook Thanksgiving' issue. This year ... still not up. I feel really lousy typing that on Dec 9th! Traci

I love decorating for Christmas, but I'm also a Fall sort of lady, so I like to keep the Fall stuff up until Thanksgiving. Coming down? Well...that's dependent on the time I have to do it! :)
