Have you put your Christmas tree and decorations up yet?

I was going to put the tree up last weekend, after I had cleaned the house, but was exhausted afterwards, so no tree or decorations yet.

I seem to do this every year, tree goes up at the last minute, then stays up until mid February.

I am committing to having the tree and decorations complete by the end of the coming weekend, and will have them packed away by mid January (at the latest!)

Anyone else a bit slack when it comes to this?

We were actually decorated a day before Thanksgiving. First time ever that early. We usually decorate the first of December but the kids begged to decorate so we let them.

Not yet, I usually decorate mid-December since we keep our tree up till 3 Kings Day in January.

Not me. I am so far behind this year! Usually, I put everything up Thanksgiving weekend, but this year, all I have is a wreath on my door that my daughter put up a couple of weeks ago. My goal is to be decorated by mid-month, which is this weekend!

Our tree and indoor decorations have been up since the day after Thanksgiving and our outdoor decorations were up the week after that. So, we've been ready for a while now :)

All done here
But it does seem to get harder and harder each year

I'd say the house is full of decorations and so forth.

I can feel the Christmas in the air. Couple of days to go!

We put ours up at least by Thanksgiving and we seem to get earlier and earlier each year. It's so much fun and inspirational to us. The kids put things that they like under the tree even if it's not a present. Gotta love em!
