We "put them up" by Dec. 15, and take them down after Jan. 1, since it's an artificial tree, no hurrying though.

If I have time to get them up, they go up around December 15 - 24, and come down on New Year's Day.

I do a lot of Christmas shopping which starts on Dec. 26, for the next year! I get ornaments on sale that I tie onto gift bags of food for others. Fun! And it is all 50% off! I also get ribbon, gift wrap, tissue, celophane, candles, and much more at the after-Christmas sales.

I think by "put up" you are saying "put away?" I usually take them down a day or two after New Years. I don't like how bare everything looks after taking down all the lights and glittery stuff. :(

Mine takes a good while since I decorate big time, so it will start coming down Wednesday when my husband returns to work. If I am lucky I will be done by Friday.

I like to start by the 15th and get it done at least by the 20th and I don't like to take them down early. I just enjoy them.

I like to have Christmas decorations put up before Dec 30. When do you?
