It's 1st Dec tomorrow, and counting down to my Christmas run . Just wondering when do people put up their Christmas trees?

good question

i am having a christmas tree for the first time EVER. the Bidie-In insists on it.

so when?

1st of December for me too - can't wait - a bit of cheeriness to brighten up the dark nights!

Can't understand why some folk don't put them up until Christmas eve - hardly seems worth the bother of getting everything out to then put it all away again so soon!

Will come down 6th January in our house!

We planned to do ours tomorrow but I think we're going to be too busy so it'll probably have to wait till next Saturday.

tomorrow its going up, woo hoo!

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.

...and whose tree will look like this:

These days I try to ignore the whole Christmas thing, so no tree or decorations for me. Seems utterly pointless when you live alone to put that stuff up.

I don't really bother with Christmas either. I shall be working anyway.

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!

Our tree has just gone up, helped by my little Elf
