Ours goes up first weekend in December and down first weekend in January.

If you want yours up now, why not? It is your tree and your Christmas, it doesn't matter, make yourself happy.

Gosh, really hope the poster who encourages her children to shout chav as people have put up their tree, is joking.

We have had a terrible year after nearly loosing dd in an accident.

She wants the tree up this weekend to cheer her up and so we have.

Ours is going up this weekend - we always put it up the first weekend in December and take everything down on NYD ready for DS1's birthday on the 2nd.

12 days of Christmas start Christmas Eve, end twelfth night, not as some folk think 12 days before the day.

Ours went up this weekend and I couldn't give a flying shiny, Christmassy shit if it bothers anyone.

Why on earth do people get upset by a Christmas tree in November? Does it hurt people? Is it noisy? Am I asking people to pay for it? Is my Christmas Tree blocking your drive?

It's late November and I have two small children who love it. I remain unapologetic.

I would also like to say thank you to the people who are tolerant and say "do Christmas however you like".That's the spirit! How other people celebrate or don't celebrate Christmas causes me no bother at all, and my Christmas shouldn't bother them either.

I've had my share of lonely, skint and depressed Christmases. My DH has had Depression and only recently got a job after a long period of unemployment. We have two children who make it all magical and it's our time now. It's cheered us all up and helped us look back with relief that a bad couple of years is over.

Happy Christmas!

we usually put ours up the Saturday before Christmas day and have a party that evening. It kicks off Chistmas for me. I don't mind when other people have theirs. Each to their own.

Exactly. And that's how it should be.
