Do you decorate for Christmas before Thanksgiving?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
We are already seeing Christmas decorations in the Stores right next to the Halloween stuff. When do you start decorating for Christmas? Before or After Thanksgiving or even Halloween?

I myself always wait until after Thanksgiving. I feel like Thanksgiving gets skipped over if we decorate before hand.

We decorate the day after Thanksgiving.

No. Thanksgiving is pretty early this year, anyway, isn't it?

Not usually before. I do it the day after

When I worked on a university campus I decorated in early Nov. Students left campus in early December so if I waited until after Thanksgiving to decorate I would have no one to enjoy the tree etc with.

Since my dh works at a church our Dec gets REALLY busy. One weekend is children's musical another is adult musical etc etc etc. Sometimes we don't have an open weekend after Thanksgiving and we also have Maggie's bday in there as well. I don't like doing all of the work of decorating and only being able to enjoy it for a short time....I have no problem doing our decorating a little before Thanksgiving - just adds more to the festivities.

Ds's birthday is in early December and I don't decorate for Christmas before then - though I will put our Christmas wreath up the day before Thanksgiving!

What drives me nuts is going to my family's house on T-giving and having them play Christmas music! I so hate that.

No, absolutely not. Early decorating for Christmas is one of my biggest pet peeves. I like to thoroughly enjoy and celebrate Thanksgiving first, then decorate for Christmas that following weekend. It's become a tradition with us. All that being said, I can not WAIT til Christmas this year.

We decorate after Thanksgiving. Instead of going shopping we spend the day after watching football, listening to Christmas music and generally spending time together. I love it and am glad DH and I are conmtinuing that tradition.

I decorate for Samhain and Yule about two weeks before they arrive.

Since it gets cold up here after Thanksgiving, my husband puts the Christmas lights up the week before. We don't turn them on until after Halloween. As for the inside, I don't usually put up the decorations until after we celebrate my son's birthday a week or two into December.
