To decorate or not to decorate...

...well, that's not really the question, because oh there WILL be decorating. lol

But when do you decorate for Christmas? Before Thanksgiving? The day of or the day after? December 1st? Ever?

I usually decorate the house the day after Thanksgiving, especially since I usually avoid Black Friday, but because of our scheduled vacation, I decided to do it this year the day before Thanksgiving. It's sort of hard to eat pumpkin pie and sweet potatoes with Christmas decorations everywhere, and I felt bad for my scarecrows and leafy wreaths to have to be put up 48 hours early, but - I made do ;) Trust me, the pie was eaten.

What is your tradition?

I want to be the kind of family that has a tradition, like decorating the day after Thanksgiving, but there's usually some reason we can't. This year we're waiting a little longer because of the baby, just so there's less clutter around the living room because we have so little space as it is. Next year, though...(I always say this)...we'll try to get into a routine :)
