We will put ours up next weekend, but already have started on a few bits and pieces (things made by the dc) and extra candles.

I think it will go up on the 18th.

Ours went up yesterday but the rest of the decs are going up this week to keep dd1 amussed as she is off school for a week with chicken pox.

Ours is going up next weekend, along with all the other decs. We always have a real one, so don't like to put it up too early.

when the boys finish school - 17th I think.

we'll probably buy it next weekend, as stocks get low after that, but possibly keep it outside till the weekend of the 18th to put up and decorate. MrM did bring the box of decorations etc into the house today.

We used to have a real one, but it's been becoming increasingly difficult to find a real one that smells right. They are usually the awful scentless Nordman Fir now, totally useless even if they do drop their pins a little less. So we've just paid farcical amounts of money for a plastic one that looks just like a PROPER Christmas tree. It will be going up some time next week.

needles, not pins! Oh dear...

tegan Sun 05-Dec-10 16:20:48

It's up! In our defence, we've been stuck since Tuesday, so, we took the opportunity <retreats with head held high....ish>

saythatagain Sun 05-Dec-10 16:27:59

......and it will come down by the 27th.

sunday 12th this year

buddytheelf Sun 05-Dec-10 17:46:48

Put mine up yesterday I had heard that there could be a shortage of real trees this year due to the snow and did't want to miss out!

Beamur Sun 05-Dec-10 17:48:25

Next weekend I hope - DP likes to hold out until nearer Christmas, but there are some being sold in our village next weekend which would be sooo much easier than trying to squash one into the car.

amerryscot Sun 05-Dec-10 17:50:13

We have resisted so far, despite DD's pleading.

We have an artificial tree in the attic which she has been begging to go up all day. However, I am holding out for a real tree next weekend.
