Ok, I know the official line is 12 days before and then 12 days after but I'm just wondering when you guys put your decs up? I'm trying to convince my hubby to get them out of the attic, at least so I can see if I want to buy any new ones Lol, but alas no joy as yet.
Thought if enough of you had them earlier I could sway him? lol

I don't want them up too early or I might get fed up of looking at them!

putting them up on thursday, but would have them up on the 1st if i could http://i36.tinypic.com/w1xj69.jpg

Well whilst i had to go out the other night the kids managed to con grandma into putting the tree up at our house so yes it is up but not all of it is out yet. I prefer to look at them before though as once it is all over i like to take them down

I don't.

I agree, ours are usually down day after boxing day so that when we have new year party it is just lights strung around usually. Oh dammit I gonna convince him somehow. (waggles eyebrows)

Some of you really are Scrooge Mcduck (just messing) but I have to admit I love Christmas. I am more of a kid than some of my kids are. Lol

mine will be going up on thursday or friday

Ours alway goes up on my birthday (18th December) and come down on the 2nd of Jan..

I don't put any up, being Buddhist we don't celebrate christmas. :-)

What did the Buddhist find inside the big present under the Christmas tree?

Emptiness. lol

As soon as possible after the 1st, it gets us all in the christmas mood and we go to the Lincoln Christmas Market which is the first week of December so we like it up for then too. They come down on 27th December though as I can't be doing with it after christmas.

mines up too - did it yesterday and doing the ceiling decs tonight - tackier the better imo lol

Not sure where you live so whether this is possible (we actually live in Lincoln so are fortunate) but the best day to go is the Thursday. It opens around 4pm and is SOOOOO much quieter than other days, we went on a Saturday once - NEVER again. You have loads of room and can actually get to the stalls, also if you have kids, the fair rides are cheaper!! They are usually £1-1.50 on a Thursday but miraculously jump up to £2-2.50 for the rest of the market!!

Can't give any tips regarding the hill though, I still have to come up for air by the time we get to the top. One year though my husband managed it pushing a buggy at the same time!! He is definitely fitter than I am.

For us its the first Saturday afternoon in December, takes a couple of hours and it's family tradition to have a couple of arguments whilst doing it then the big switch-on about dusk and we all then sit and watch 'National Lampoons Xmas Vacation' :thumbsup:.... thats when christmas starts in our house :santa:

same tradition in our house except we watch elf (best christmas film ever made)
arguments are also an integral part of putting them up

Ours are up, I like them up early but then take them down 2 days after xmas.

oh and ive just opened a selection box and eating choccy!lol

1st of December

Try to extend the Christmas spirit as long as possible.

Take them down early January.

Decided it's probably worth getting them all out of the loft so they are now stacked up in the front room ready.

ours go up 12 days before and come down 12 days after!

I'd like to wait until the 20th but kids insist it goes up on the day they open their first advent calendar door - so it will be tomorrow!

[COLOR=magenta]Mine are up, and have been for a week woohoo[/COLOR]

Oh and i've got a real life fairy!! http://i356.photobucket.com/albums/oo6/tallblonde_2008/026.jpg
