Right now, I'm thinking about getting my house ready for Thanksgiving. I don't like mixing Thanksgiving/fall decor with Xmas decorations. I like to enjoy the Fall colors right up to Thanksgiving day. The day after or the next, I usually start putting up the lights. I haven't put a tree up for the past 5 years. Years ago I would only settle for a real tree but then I switched to an artificial one. After that tree wore out, I didn't bother to get another. I have an ornamental tree that has lights on it year round. I don't have a lot of storage space for decorations and I got tired of moving everything in the room to accommodate an area just for a tree. With all the other decorations, and the lighted tree, it looks enough like Christmas. I don't have any grand kiddies so it's not as if they'd mind, lol!

No tree for the house..no presents either..If anything a good meal and have one to maybe three people here if that..No need for any gifts..Their presents is a gift enough.
I have no grandkids.Only the one son...

67, Not everybody is going to agree with the way you think...you should at least respect where they are coming from.

A little too early for me, but it will probably be up by the first week of December.

Way too early yet (mid-November) hours never goes out until the weekend after Thanksgiving. We always go out and 'on' a live tree, quite a family tradition-we buy a USFS permit and go out in the national forest to get one. As we all trudge around in the snow just enjoying being out in the world, it's sort of my job and my moms to pick out the tree, then it's dad's job to crawl under it with the Bostock laying down in the snow or on the frozen ground to cut it. It's also his job and my brother's to tote the thing back to the truck, LOL! Then it's woman's work once we're back all in the truck cab and the engine's running, to open up the thermos of hot cocoa (coffee, whatever) and fill everybody's cup. A woman's work is never done!
