I do some minor decorating. I have a light up turkey that I put on my front step and I have various pilgrim, Indian and turkey candles I display in the dining room. This year, I'm going to buy one of those large paper Turkey decorations for the front window. You know the ones you used to see when I was a kid the last 70's. That is if I can find one.

My family an I do, yes. :roll: a big tradition
O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,

It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth.

Long lay the world in sin and error pining.

Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth...

We roll a small portion of Thanksgiving into the Christmas decor, then take it down right after Turkey Day. :)

I actually have never decorated for Thanksgiving, BUT I usually have my Christmas decorations up by then...and if not UP...then out and ready to go.



I always want to get my tree the week or so before Thanksgiving...but it just never works out well, and I usually end up getting it the weekend after Thanksgiving like everyone else.

My house looked like an abandoned building once I took my Halloween down so I've been collecting a bit of Thanksgiving decor just to fill in the gaps. Once I set up the extension cords outside and inside for Halloween I just keep them in place for Christmas lights so no going back to everyday decor until after the holidays. The thrift stores are a great resource for inexpensive stuff so I've got a bit of a collection going on. :roll: Just what I need...more decorating tubs to store. Snowmen collection goes up this weekend and I'm sure my children will consider ringing up the state hospital - they have it on speed dial from my Halloween festivities all year long anyway. :shock:

Thanksgiving Decorating

Postby Santa Baby on Wed Nov 07, 2007 3:37 pm

I have some pumpkin things that I leave up after Halloween and just a few token items that actually scream Thanksgiving Its good though because I then gear up for Christmas and after all the Halloween decorating I just did I need a wee bit of a break!!

I wish. The only thing that really gets decorated is the kitchen. I have turkey salt and pepper shakers, candleholders, and burner covers. I have a tablecloth and some paper pilgrims. I'd love to really go all out and maybe get some Thanksgiving Jim Shore pieces.

We usually just leave our Christmas decorations from September to first week of January and we just add some stuff before Christmas but after that we just leave it to that.
