I am so envious of all you who are decorating soon, or early/mid November!!! The last 2 years I have put my tree up the Friday before Thanksgiving, but since I am hosting my families Thanksgiving this year & I will have 41 (possibly more) people here, I can't put my tree up until the day after Thanksgiving...which will cut into my black friday shopping. Ah well.... Looking forward to hosting Thanksgiving!

Nary a decoration to be found before Thanksgiving... So, the evening after Thanksgiving it is. (Black Friday) - I like to keep my holidays separate, and I can't enjoy Thanksgving with a Christmas tree in the room.

..that is so how I am. But last year I decorated on the 13th and just new it would take that thanksgiving feeling out of the air,but it was wierd it didn't at all,so I will do the same again this year. Now it's kind of hard for me to listen to the Christmas music before halloween..that I can't do,but some ppl here listen all year around,different strokes for different folks I guess!

We put our tree up on Nov. 19-my son's birthday. The rest of the decorations go up on Thanksgiving weekend.

I thought I was going to wait until Thanksgiving, but I'm not sure I want to wait that long!! I may put them up this week some time.

1st week of November for us! I will start bringing boxes out tomorrow. Our outside decorations will probably go out a week before Thanksgiving.

I love our neighborhood because a lot of people start decorating during the first couple of weeks in November.

I usually convince Kim and Mike to allow me to decorate by November 13th. Sometimes Kim requests the lights to go up even sooner. Maybe I will be able to put them up this weekend and the tree next weekend just in time for the beginning of the Season!? Oh, the excitement!
