I don’t decorate anymore (used to when the girls were small) but when I did the decorations came down the day after Halloween.

We don’t have any but surely it would be the day after Halloween? It’s a one day thing.

Obviously, lots of people do!

I used to decorate the kitchen window/front of the house so that the neighbourhood children knew to knock for trick or treating.

Ours usually stay up for half term. Put them away on Sunday night.

Usually decorate just for the day but not bothering this year as don’t want trick or treaters to call. Am hoping next year we can welcome them again.

We put ours up tonight because this is the last day of our half term and I'm needing cheered up after seeing how early it got dark today. They will come down the day after Halloween.

I like to leave them until after bonfire night. Especially anything that lights up.

Used to be as soon as dc had gone to bed after trick or treating

Wgen we go Trick or Treating, there's pumpkins in windows or a skeleton on the door but not what I'd class as decorations in the Christmas Decorations sense. Unless we were having a party it wouldn't occur to me. And we're out TorT so never occurred to me to decorate our home! I didn't have in the same category as Christmas for decs.

Woah, that's early for Christmas decs! More power to you, but I don't think I could live with them for two months, personally.
