When do you begin to decorate for Christmas? 

Do you have any traditions about decorating?

We decorate the day after Thanksgiving. I didn't use to like decorating for Christmas. I loved celebrating but not decorating. Now, with a family I love it!

I try to put if off as long as possible ;)

I really don't like to decorate all that much, just seems like a lot of work to drag it all out and then have to put it all away in a month.  I'll probably do a little this weekend, not planning on doing much since we won't have the in-laws visiting this year.

I love decorating for Christmas, but I'll admit that we're a bit haphazard about it.  We don't start until after November ends, and we don't undecorate until after Epiphany.  (In grad school, the tree once stayed up until Easter.)  Every year, I make paper ornaments signifying something important for the year...started the year Penn was a toddler and I didn't want to risk glass ornaments...
