I put mine up the day before Thanksgiving. It was snowing out, so it seemed like the perfect time! I love all the lights and decorations of Christmas! But I usually am tired of it by the time Christmas rolls around, and everything is down the day after!

HI Kevin
Funny you would mention Christmas tree's today. It dawned on my husband and I that we are not going to be able to put up a tree this year!
We have no room! All the places a tree can go there is now fish tanks! lol...
So instead I will decorate the fireplace mantel.
NOT moving any fish tanks!!! hehehe....

Typically it goes up the day after Thanksgiving here, but SWMBO wanted the room repainted first. Just finished that yesterday after I got back home from an emergency call-in to work. So hopefully when I get home tonight, I'll take care of the tree.

My b-day is early January and I feel the other's pain.. we always got "This is christmas and B-day." Always envied my brothers.

We are definitely putting a tree up, wish we could in the fishhouse, but just no room for one there. Plus there won't be anyone there to see it, so what the hey. The tree is probably all this year, but as the years progress we're definitely going more "all out" with decorations.

I don't know if we will, actually. They're not big on Xmas here in The Netherlands. They're a lot more into 'Sinterklaas', which is actually the origin of Santa Klaus. It's this hatted fat bishop guy dressed in red (rings a bell?) and he gives presents to children who've been good. It's celebrated on 6 December. Adults dont' really celebrate Xmas. I miss my Belgian Xmases with lots of pressies!

Now THAT's what I call dedication!

LOL Armadillo... I guess so! My husband isn't too happy about not having a tree, but what the heck, we have no kids at home, going to my daughters for xmas anyway and she will have a tree up. And too think I won't have such a mess to clean up after xmas. lol. I'm going to have fun decorating the mantel over the fireplace and see what I can come up with. Will have to make it elaborate somehow to make up for the loss of the tree space. But since we do use the fireplace all winter, will have to be careful lol...

lol.. too bad they don't sell little aquarium-safe Christmas trees - then you could put one in your biggest tank. ;D

Why is everyone else's tree decorated SO much better than mine? = (

Hehe, probably because my 3 year old daughter thinks it's her tree to CLIMB and "redecorate" Right now all the decorations she can reach are clumped in a 1 foot circle.

ah.. she's a student of the 'clumpism' decoration style.

Mlinden, you should take a pic of it and sign it really big and sell it for a million bucks as modern art.

LoL... well it's a lot of things, but definitely not art! = ) It's a good thing we don't have a bunch of ornaments. We have a tradition in our family that each kid gets an ornament each year, then when they move out they get to take them and start adding to them with their own family. It makes it easier to take down after Christmas too!

Is there anything else like the Christmas season? I absolutely love the lights, the tree, the baking, and the general cheer of the season. And it looks like we'll be getting some more snow (mixed with rain and ice) this weekend. Should make all the lights sparkle
