Just a fun name for them - we actually get on very well.

My hubby insists on putting up the outside lights the weekend after thanksgiving, but then complains about the electric billAs far as the tree, we get a real one & I make sure we have it by the 12th, which is my oldests birthday......as far as the inside decorations...well it depends, some years I do a little around the week after thanksgiving, other times I go all out! It all depends on how many little ones want to get involved

I'm not in the mood this year. Usually I decorate every corner. This year just a tree. I have too much going on right now and decorating would just stress me out.

No, I haven't put up any decorations, yet. I will start the second weekend in December...we leave them up until the Epiphany (my husband and his twin's birthday) so I don't start any earlier. By the time I take them down I am sick of trees, ornaments and decorations!

That's why we use large clear X'mas bulbs. I can leave them year around if I didn't feel like taking them down. They pretty much double as patio and accent lights the rest of the year.....

oh yes! the decorations are done on the inside, the outside is half done but not lit. We don't light outside until Thanksgiving night - being from the midwest we need to take advantage of the warm weather when we can. i always decorate early, its just me. christmas cards go in the mail tomorrow too - hopefully to be delivered the first day after thanksgiving.

Used to be a real Christmas junkie, but since Buck's not here to share, probably won't do anything. He loved Christmas and was part of what fed my holiday spirit. Unless something changes, it'll just be another day for me. Sorry to be a downer, but the holidays are going to be a challenge for me. Hope I didn't kill this thread. I apologize.
