1st dec as always

Mines going up on the 1st Dec, I find that the right time before I get bored of it all :)

Sunday 8th here, we've got a night in at my friends on Friday 6th which means going through to stay at my mums. There's a christmas craft fayre on the Saturday that's usually got some nice bits and pieces, then we will come home after that, tree up on the Sunday as we have stepson that weekend and it's nice for him to be part of decorating it.
Im getting excited already, I love Christmas

Just looked at my rota and Itl either have to be 28 nov which I don't really want to do or the 4th, which IMO is late

Probably the 1st. Last year was the first year I out it up so early but L loved it

Normally? 10th/12th/15th December
This year, the morning of the first. I've diarised it with hubby and son because hubby starts work at 1pm that day and I want us all to do it together. The tree at least. First Christmas in new home, new family :)

I thought you meant of November then SW
As soon as I can here!

Ha ha definitely not. We once put it up on 30th Nov and it seemed to be up forever so we won't be doing that again.

Ours will go up on the 8th this year - I don't put it up the weekend before as it's Joshua's birthday and I like him to have that without Christmas encroaching on it. School Christmas Fayre is the 7th and we have a christening on the morning of the 8th so I guess we will do it that afternoon.

Its usually done on the 1st but we are having a little party at home for O's second birthday on the 1st so it'll have to wait, maybe one evening that following week when we are all here, I need to check H's shifts!
05/11/2013 at 20:22
Whenever I have time. Probably not til 14/15 dec though! I'd love to do it earlier but H wouldn't be happy!

1st Dec - can't wait!!!

We always put ours up on the first Sunday in Advent, which is the 1st December. So looking forward to it!

I'm putting it up on the 1st! It takes so much time I would feel annoyed only putting it up for a couple of weeks on 15th ish!
06/11/2013 at 06:49
We tend to put it up around 2 weeks before but last year went for the 1st, this year it will depend on when baby makes an appearance!

30 Novemeber here, as this is our weekend but will be taking it down just before 20 Dec, flying back then putting up another one.
Normally only put the one up where ever we are spending xmas but decided to push the boat out this year lol

I think I will go with the 1st December too, the schools Christmas tree will be on display in our local church that weekend so will be nice to see that on the same day as putting up the tree
06/11/2013 at 07:52
Ours will be up on the 1st Dec.
C's Birthday is 2nd Dec, and he has always liked having the decs up for his birthday.
Usually, i'd put them up in the last couple of days of Nov, but I am meeting a load of Hitchers on the 30th, so won't be home to do it...

Ours will most likely go up on 7th December. I was brought up with Christmas decorations going up on 6th December but as we'll both be working it will have to wait a day.
