    A post in tri 2 has shocked me to the core...... so when do people put their decorations up??

    I usually do mine about the 10th ish December and although I love them, and look forward to putting them up, I'm always pleased to take them down again. Usually on New years day or the 2nd. :D

    Everyone's Going To Bombard Me For This Im Sure, But....

    Mine Went Up Last Friday! :cheer:

    :rotfl: I Know, I Know, Its Early Bla Bla But I Cant Help Being All Excited This Year So [​IMG]. Its Just The Tree Tho, Nothing Else Yet Not Even Lights and In My Defence... My Tree Was Delivered So I Opened It In Excitement To See If It Was a Good One, Then After Setting It Up To See What It Was Like I Decided There Was No Way I Was Taking It All Back Down Again As It Took Me Over An Hour To Open Up All The Branches!

    Anyways, Its Up & Im Proud Of It, and My Birthday Presents Are Under It Too Ready For Next Week [​IMG]

    OMG it's NOVEMBER!! How could you have it decorated already? :lol:

    I'm not sure when ours will go up this year, we go away on the 5th December so if we have time I'll put some up beforehand (we're having the front room and dining room decorated though whilst we're away so will just be the tree). Otherwise it will be when we get back on the 14th which seems too close to Xmas!!

    Well, girls... I am an old-fashioned tart! The children decorate the house on Dec 13th, which is traditionally the right day in Spain - but the tree goes up on Christmas EVE - and it is a family thing, with lots of little family traditions, the angel at the top is put on by the youngest member, until last year my son Victor (he's 9) This year the theory is that Anais is to do it - but at 5 months it is going to be difficult to explain to her... :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
    My OH gets the lights and he is allowed to curse and say as many four letter words as he wants because they dont work! (But no shouting!)
    We have homemade biscuits/ or my mum's mince pies if I can find the time to make them - and then the kids put out a treat for Santa and go to bed!
    After that my OH inspects what Santa has got to eat and drink! He always hints that Santa doesnt like milk very much - or has a milk allergy - and that HE thinks that a tot of whisky would be a nice touch! :rotfl: :rotfl:

    My deckies aren't up and they won't be for ages yet! Not cos I'm a miserable scrooge type but our house still isn't ready to move into yet! Hopefully we'll be in by th 14th of December and then it needs painting etc so I might have to forego christmas decorations this year... :cry: :cry: :cry:

    can I come and sit in someone elses living room and stare at the tree?!?!
