After the kids get off school or the weekend before, comes down the day after New Year's Day. In Poland where I come from you always put it up on Christmas Eve and it tends to stay on throughout January, once we had ours til Easter as it was very fresh (we cut it from the forest ourselves) and it did not drop any needles.

Sounds a bit rubbish. My mums had the same Christmas tree for 30 years and it's never dropped any needles.

I havent put my tree or lights up yet, its a bit early I reckon (I would be sick of the sight of it by xmas), but I can see why people want to brighten the place up a bit when its cold, dark and horrid weather outside. First one in my street went up 25th Nov ....that would just do my nut in!!

I think my tree might go up about 16th Dec....then promptly come down again about 3hrs later once the new cat realises how much fun he can have climbing it !!! This is going to be great fun (for him)!

Ah cats and Christmas trees, always adds to the fun of the festive season.

Spot the imposter. This is from 2007 so she's bigger now but still tries her best. Every ornament now shows signs of repair.

Christmas Eve, of course! I'll probably buy the tree in a couple of weeks though and just keep it outside in the woodstore until time. It comes down on 12th night and goes back into the woodstore, this time in pieces.


Well said!

Ours goes up the weekend before schools finish.

AliBear - that is a great photo - what a cute cat . This is what I have to look forward to - my rescue cat will be 2 next Feb, and this is his first Christmas with me ! He is always up the trees in the back garden, so this will be in-house winter entertainment for him!

The last weekend before x-mas, like every year.  I too am a "non-believer" but Christmas has evolved as a festival and is all-inclusive as far as i'm concerned.  The church stole it from Pagans and then the rest of us joined in the fun.

As I am a non-believer, it would be hypocritical of me to celebrate this religious festival, so I don't. Bah Humbug to the lot of ya! 

Yebbut a yule tree is like a totally heathen thing!

We haven't got our tree yet. If we don't get one very soon, apparently I'm going to be short of a couple of baubles by Monday....

So far, Mr Higgs has stolen, in this order:  four chocolate coins, two small baubles, one large parcel-type decoration and one round shiny bauble to 'kill later' ! Not bad puss, but you aint supposed to eat chocolate!!! All deccies now moved up to the higher branches!!!

Happy Christmas everyone , let the Pig-Out Fest begin !!!

 'I'll pretend everything is cool. They won't notice the few baubles I've managed to kick under the sofa!'

....and those are not the ones we have to pick up everyday from all over the room and put back on the tree! We'll be lucky if there's anything else left on the tree by Christmas!
