If DH had his way he'd buy a reduced price real tree on Christmas eve like his parents used to do. I'm not having that so it'll go up about the 20th. I don't like starting Christmas too early. I haven't seen any trees up round here yet.
Absolutely loathe the late late. No one else in the house has mentioned it so I’m keeping stum. Mid-December will do me for decorations ( or better later) but I appear I have an over enthusiastic Christmas fan for husband.
(I actually don’t mind Christmas really, just prefer to keep the start later)
My tree's up! It is a fake one, about 25 years old and still going strong. I would toy with bah humbugism so this is quite a feat, won by my Christmas-mad 9 year old. I also loathe Ryan Subsidy and the Late Late Show but he (my son, not Ryan) is so excited that I will make an event of it for him.
I also have all my Christmas shopping done and wrapped. It's only taken 50 years hard labour (in the last few hours of christmas eve mostly) togetto the point and it's so surprising it may be a one off.
It's still far too early, all the needles will have fallen off by 6th January if the tree goes up now. I tend to delay and delay in the hope that nobody will want a tree this year, so we get one of the last, wonkiest ones on about the 20th/21st.
