Aibu to think you don't put your tree up in November?

I've just seen my first Christmas tree post on Facebook. WTF! It's November.

It was hard to stop myself from putting a sarcastic pithy comment on their post. Trees should not be decorated until December, although it's OK in shops/restaurants once Hallowe'en is out of the way.

Anyway, it looks like a real one. I'll have the last laugh when all her needles fall off by the time I get mine up (the week before Christmas, like any sane person).

My friend put one up yesterday.

Blamed it on her almost 3 year old who asked for it to be put up.

Mine isn't going up but I can't get to excited by people who have theirs up.

I intended to put mine up this weekend. Mainly because we're busy every other weekend leading up to Christmas. However events have overtaken us and we didn't manage it. Hopefully tomorrow. I like to get the most out of it and feel Christmassy for as long as possible. smile

Yabu, what people do in their own homes is their own business (within reason obviously), Christmas decorations make a lot of people happy, so what's the issue?

There's only 3 Sundays until Christmas, I know a lot of people who work in retail that will not get a chance to decorate after this weekend due to crazy working hours, so they are getting it done before they are too fed up and wrecked.

Don't be mean. Why shouldn't they?

"My friend put one up yesterday.

That smacks of excuses or poor three year old management. wink

It's Advent Sunday today so a lot of people put their trees up today.

LineyReborn Sun 29-Nov-15 19:05:13

It's not a crime, though, is it?

Poor mite gets blamed for all sorts that his parents want to do grin

We out ours up yesterday.

Next weekend is two of our birthdays and due to my job we can't do it midweek. So hey ho. We almost always wait until December but the way the dates have fallen it's had to go up this w/e. It comes down early though.

Mine's up! santa My kids did ask me, but I'm a grown up - I wanted to, so I did... I will not apologise! grin

supermariossister Sun 29-Nov-15 19:05:47

Ours is up, we normally do it the first but won't all be together as sc will be at their mum's and dp on nights then we are busy the next couple of nights with school events and appointments so it would of been mid December or doing it without sson and sdaughter. I love having the tree up and we had a great time, each to their own.

AliceInUnderpants Sun 29-Nov-15 19:05:44

I couldn't really give a shiny shit what someone else does in their own home. Put yours up whenever you want to/don't want to. YABU.

MardyBra Sun 29-Nov-15 19:06:51

Bloody hell, it's rife. Think I'd better send a dm to Maryzzz for back up.

SpanglesGalloway Sun 29-Nov-15 19:08:17

Yabu. Most people work full time and it doesn't take 5 minutes to put your tree up... so a weekend is ideal. Today and yesterday are closer to 1st December than next weekend is...I've got mine up today and if anyone makes a sarky comment about trees in November ill actually comment on their post with a picture of my tree. santa

LineyReborn Sun 29-Nov-15 19:09:14

What did Maryz do to deserve a random mother??

OneMoreCasualty Sun 29-Nov-15 19:08:58

We are away next weekend so ours was done today. It's nearly dec 1

ChestyNut Sun 29-Nov-15 19:09:40

First Sunday of Advent mardy santa

Bet MaryZ head has exploded at all the Christmas threads!

Maybe83 Sun 29-Nov-15 19:10:37

Mines up. Whole house is decorated my mam hates christmas moans from November until January about it. I remember that from my childhood. As soon as I moved out and had my own children I ve thrown my self into all things Christmas.

Now it has to be up in our house week before my birthday. I love it and so do the kids.

MardyBra Sun 29-Nov-15 19:10:45

direct message liney. (I know you're just trying to wind me up).

Maryz is the ultimate no Christmas talk in August MNer.

Pico2 Sun 29-Nov-15 19:10:57

We put DD's up today as she has been asking about Christmas for ages, so I thought it might reduce the incessant chatter. It's one way of managing an excited 5 yo.

Cuppaand2biscuits Sun 29-Nov-15 19:11:43

We did ours today. 2 people on my newsfeed have had theirs up for weeks.

MardyBra Sun 29-Nov-15 19:12:49

I hope there are some trees left me.
