1. What is your favorite ornament on your Christmas Tree?

2. Do you decorate at work (or you s.o. if you don't work)?

3. Are you done shopping?

"We didn't put a tree up for a few years. I wasn't going to this year, so the kids put it up themselves."

She wasn't, her post clearly said this year.

That's their choice.

<p>To all who don't have their tree up yet, when do you put it up?</p>

About three or four years ago we decided to start waiting until the 3rd week to put the tree up, It's the week of joy and the spirit really starts kicking in then for my family and I.  If we ever decide to buy an artificial tree we may go back to putting it up the weekend that follows Thanksgiving again...

Except that she was talking about - and you were responding to - her not putting on up THIS YEAR.

Nope. Christmas just isn't that important to me. 

Gotcha. So it shouldn't be to your children either then?

If her kids were able to put it up themselves it does not seem like something she had to do for them. 

I was speaking of in the past.
