We usually don't put the tree up until the 15th of December, and then decorate in time for Yule.

They are up and they are lovely to behold. :)

I've already decorated the inside of the house. Would like to decorate the outside this week, but have to go shopping first. Presents are almost bought and wrapped; will finish up today. I'm also baking Christmas cookies today using SparkRecipes.

We haven't even started! We have to use them to decorate for a party this week so we'll be getting them up on Friday.

Not yet. It's on my list for today.

Our family tradition is No Christmas Decorations Until We Are IN The Month Of December!

I was planning to get to it this weekend, but too many other things got bumped up on the to-do list.

I started putting up Christmas decorations a few days before Thanksgiving and by that weekend everything, including the tree, was done. The holiday season is my favorite time of the year. I made 15 pounds of fruitcake (my MIL's recipe, it's great!) over the weekend, have most of my shopping done and have started the wrapping, starting to stuff the grandchildren's stockings too, and getting some deep housecleaning done. Will start cards this week. Planning the food for our two family dinners here, and I want to fill tins with several kinds of home baked cookies, fudge, etc. for family as well. All the while listening to Christmas music...fa la la la la, la la, la la. emoticon

I don't think I am going to put decorations up this year. It isn't because I'm not in the spirit either. I had my kitchen remodeled this year and I just got my house back into working order. I just don't want to move things around again to put the tree up!

House is all decorated inside.

The fresh Fraser fir is up, and I put the lights on tonight. Tomorrow - the ornaments!

I still need to light up the bushes outside.

I have a party for 25 Saturday night. I need it all done before Tuesday so I can concentrate on the cleaning and cooking!
