    Talking When Do You Put Your Christmas Decorations Up?

    We normally put them up the 2nd weekend in December but we are visiting our daughter at Uni next weekend so we have started putting them up today

    How about you?

    Usually 7-10 days before Christmas. We have a real tree and they dry out if they are up for too long, even with regular watering.

    We also leave our decorations up until Twelfth Night. I know some people who put them up earlier than we do but take them down on Boxing Day!

    The outside lights go up whenever OH gets round to doing it. Generally earlier than the indoor stuff though.

    I started today. If I'm putting them up I want to maximise the pleasure and return on my effort by having them up as long as possible. Live tree? - OK would leave that a while longer, but no reason why everything else shouldn't go up. I even started playing Christmas CDs in the car a few days ago!

    Advent starts in just over 6 hours on Sunday 2 December after all !

    Bah Humbugs are for sucking .... over on MSE there's a rumour they will be BOGOF at Tesco throughout Advent, so get there early tomorrow.

    Merry Christmas Everyone !

    Our outdoor lights have gone up today, tree goes up tomorrow, don't think i've ever done them this early b4 & if I had my way they wouldn't be up for another week but 8 yr old dd is so excited & begging me to get the tree down.

    Don't feel at all ready this year probably cos I'm working but also cos the glitches have kept me busy for the last 3 months as well, December has kind of crept up on me.

    We usually put them up a week before christmas but also leave them up until the twelth night. I hate taking them down as it looks all bare! Got some bargain blue icicle lights to hang off the fascia from b and q last year. All my christmas decorations are blue and silver which are oh and my favourite colours. We have had this colour for 30 years and I think its come back in fashion as lots of store have got this colour in this year! Used to have a real tree when the kids were little don't think we could afford one with the price they are now! Still have gots lots of chocolates which I couldn't have afforded years ago(lol)!
