When I was small, my familiy always did it right after Thanksgiving. Maybe the day after. As an adult, eh, not so organized. Sometimes we've had our decorations up as late as the week before Christmas.

I do mine on the 1st of December, which gives me just about enough time to sort everything out in the house and get really, really excited about getting all the decorations out :D It also gives me a chance to buy some new ones! :lol:

That sounds very intriguing, Pete! :lol:

I decorate around Thanksgiving, or right before...if the family's coming over to our house for Thanksgiving dinner, I like for our village to be up at least....gives our place a festive look. :)

I have yet to take down a few remaing Halloween bits & bobs. After that, it's a long and arduous task of finding the perfect place for everything. Sometimes, I'll change where things are, and change my mind again, and again, until I find the perfect home for the item.

But this year, I don't want everything in exactly the same place as it was last year. I want to try a few more ideas I got durring Halloween, and see how it works out. I also want to try to make a few home made items. Things I've been saving up all year to try out and really make it look like another world.

It might be a tall order, since I opted to leave a few large props outside the box from Halloween. Maybe if I dress the Skeleton pirate in a black hood & robe, I can pass him off as The Ghost Of Christmas Past. But there's darned little I can do to explain away the foam pumpkins.

The day after Thanksgiving is decorating day at my house, but this year I'm going to do some early, I took whole week of Thanksgiving off so I'll have time to get a head start.

I start decorating right after Thanksgiving I love to see the trees up and I feel cheated if I dont get to have them up at least a full month!
I've been an awful good girl,

Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight.

I have always started the day after Thanksgiving. All the fall stuff is taken down and up goes as much of the xmas stuff as I can do that day.

I was bad this year, I've put up most of my own things in my bedroom already :D The rest of the stuff probably won't be out until december sometime.
It's the most wonderful time of the year
