Anyone have the tree up?

So who has decorated for Christmas already inside the house? I always put up all the inside decorations and the tree the weekend before Thanksgiving. I love enjoying the holidays as long as I can and it lets me relax a bit more come December. So who else is ready?

My crazy neighbor up the street who has his tree in the window, the lights on the house, Christmas wreath on the door---all lit up!

Oh, and the pumpkins and corn stalks on the porch and by the light post

It's an eccentric look for sure

yeah..we've got a nutty neighbor like that..they still have the halloween blow ups inflated, right next to a big snow globe of the Nativity, kind of tacky!!

as for me.. the decorating stars the day after Thanksgiving.. the trees are usually the last things I do..we normally put up a big one, a medium one and a small one, , but we have 3 new cats in our family now, who are only 7 months old, and they may do a lot of damage, do debating on just putting up 1 tree, lol!

I did put the outdoor lights up when we had an unusually warm November weekend 2 weeks ago, but I don't turn them on till Dec 1'st

I have a small 4 foot tree that sits on an end table. I waxed the floor (that is a major job for me and takes several hours because I can only do a small area at a time before I am in major pain.) I moved the furniture a little. I set the tree on the table and cleared it off. I have put away other "stuff" to make ready. I bought the new candles for the Advent Wreath and made a plan for my devotions when I light each candle. I freshened up the tree that goes ourside my front door, got the garland out for the balcony, fixed a tiny 1 foot tree for my bedroom, fixed my centerpiece and ironed the tablecloth. Now all I have to do is put the decorations in place, put the backing on the quilts I am making for my daughter, sister, nephews, and a good friend--wrap them and enjoy the season of anticipation!

I've started inside. I've got my tree up in my office and the other small one up at the end of the hall. The big one will go up Thursday night when DH is home to help! I've put up some of the other decor, as well. The outside stuff will go up this weekend, again, when DH is home to help. (The outside is still decorated for thanksgiving.)

It does feel early, but doing stuff the week of thanksgiving is our tradition, so up it goes.

I have my tree up. Last week when Disney had their friends and family sale I wanted to order a bunch or ornaments, so I got all the ones I have out to see what I did and didn't have. Anyway, I didn't want to pack them all up just to unpack them a week later, so I put up my tree.

Everything is up, except the real tree. A have a few fake ones up, plus all the decorations inside and out. Many people in my neighbor are already lighted so we put ours up yesterday.

We do our outside decorations the first weekend in December. Our neighbor put all her outside ones up last weekend and wow is it festive! LOL I mean every square inch of yard seems to be covered. I'm sure the kids love it and I'm for any and all decorations and getting into the spirit.

Wow, it still seems so early. I usually put my tree up about 3 weeks before Christmas and take it down about 2 days after Christmas. Once Christmas is over I want it all out of site again. My inlaws always put their tree and decorations up right after Halloween and leave it up until after New Years. I think it's crazy, there is no way I would want to see all that for 2 months!

we'll be putting everything up this week. If we were hosting Thanksgiving, I'd probably wait until right after. I like everything up early to enjoy it all for a while.

Usually never until Dec. 1, but we leave for DLR on the 2nd, so this year everything will go up the weekend after Thanksgiving.
