Have you put up your Christmas decorations yet?

I am going to be in India for Christmas so I am not putting a Chirstmas tree or decorations up in our house this year.

I did however buy a poinsettia today.

I'm not sure if I'm decorating this year or not... We'll go to Paul's folks in Oregon for the holiday so..... I know for sure we won't buy a tree. But, we may get some of my five million snowmen out. I have quite a large collection.

Unemployment frees you up to do all sorts of things on a more timely schedule. Yesterday was the first break from the 30s outside, so I did the lights outside the house yesterday. I did the inside of the house on Sunday. We get a live tree, so I won't get that till the second weekend my parents are here.

It does look nice...

I don't do decorations or tree, because of the cats but that is okay. I don't need the trappings.

not yet, but I am getting ready...I am cleaning the house and especially the walls and floor around where the tree will go. I usually leave the tree up for 2 months, or until the needles start to fall off. We usually put the cut tree up the Sunday after thanksgiving..

Not yet, but have seen if some lights still work.

Not even thanksgiving yet.

Not until the 10th or 15th or so...
It'll take me that long to wade thru the junk room to get to the crawlspace under the stairs where I keep it all anyway.....

I brought down the stash of our old C7 & C9 clear bulbs which we have not used in several years. I got a little holiday spirit in me so I decided to string the perimeter of our roof line with them. Only thing is that these bulbs use a lot of electricity. I looked at those new LED bulbs in these sizes but were turned off by their high cost (over $1 per bulb).
