So when do we put up our Christmas decorations?
I believe that each holiday should be celebrated individually and not combined with other holidays that are near in date. So Christmas decor does not even cross my mind until after Thanksgiving. It even goes further than that, at our house Christmas doesn't show up at our house until December 1st. We do begin celebrating the Advent season even if the first day of Advent falls before Dec. 1st (like this year), but that doesn't mean we're breaking our Christmas decorations yet.
Realistically, though, I don't get much out until mid-December. We always get a real Christmas tree and if you put that bugger up to early it dries out and becomes a fire hazard no matter how much you water it. So the tree usually goes up around Dec. 15th-ish. Our outside lights go up whenever WM feels like it. That's his territory (though I have veto rights if I don't like how it's looking). Usually he has them up around the 2nd weekend of December or somewhere around there.
So, there you have it. Not real exciting, I know, but that's how our Christmas decorating rolls.
