    I usually start planning in October, right as my girlfriend starts to get excited for Halloween, I realize that Christmas is only 2 1/2 months away and that it's going to get here faster than I think. Need to have everything planned out so I'm not running around like a crazy man the last few days before Christmas.

    I have already planned out my decorating. I am pretty traditional and tend to decorate in a similar fashion each year. I will make a few changes this year! Decorating usually starts the day after Thanksgiving. This year, I believe that's Nov 23rd. May put up one small tree prior to that

    Kinda flyin' by the seat of my pants as far as yard stuff goes. I have purchased several things, but won't know where they will go until I start doing it.
    I love Outdoor Christmas Lights!!

    First November has always been the start of Christmas decoration, for me and my family.

    1st of Dec used to be our dedicated day to decorate however each year it has been getting earlier

  10. We usually start to decorate around the first of December. Any earlier is just too early. We need to appreciate Thanksgiving for what it is which is not the beginning of Christmas. Thanksgiving gets shafted being tied to Christmas that way. So we start at the beginning of December but probably will still leave something undone. We try to get all of us together around the first weekend in December to put up the tree.
