Ours goes up on the second weekend in December normally, although this year I may put it up at the beginning of December as I can barely wait.

the lastweekend before christmas - so 21/22 dec

Not until DD1 is home from Uni as she wants to help. grin That means probably Sunday 15th at the earliest.

There are 2 houses near where I live with outside lights up already. Lovely to look at and it gets my children very excited but I don't fancy their electricity bill. <scrooge> smile

Usually around the 15th December. My neighbour put hers up on Wednesday!

My tree goes up on the winter solstice and comes down on Twelfth Night.

I am thinking of putting up some festive bunting and doing a wintery mantlepiece thing from the start of December this year.

Ours will be 8 a.m. Sunday 1st December this year (DC already nagging!).

Used to be a week before Xmas pre-DC!

First Sunday of December. I do the tree while DH makes a roast dinner and we have Buble Christmas album playing.

Not before the 12th of December, usually the first weekend after, so this year it will go up on the 14th.

vixsatis Fri 15-Nov-13 11:55:49

Weekend before Christmas

schilke Fri 15-Nov-13 11:56:09

Dawndonnaagain Fri 15-Nov-13 11:59:05

My birthday is December 6th, so not until after my birthday! grin

14th December. We have family coming up on the 15th so it will go up the night before.

The weekend before Christmas Eve

Last year mine went up on the 1st December, my mum puts hers up when the schools break off. This year I think it will be up from approx 24th-26th December sad because DS will be 11mo and I have visions of me spending the whole of December shouting at him to get out the bloody thing.

nancerama Fri 15-Nov-13 12:12:01

Usually on 12th December, but last year all the people selling cheap knocked off trees round here had sold out so I ended up spending a small fortune at the garden centre. I fear this year I'm going to have to get in early.

MrsPeeWee Fri 15-Nov-13 12:16:00

We usually put ours up on the 1st Dec, however my husband is away for the next 3 weeks on exercise (hes in the army) from Monday, so we're considering putting it up this weekend. grin
