    December 1st. Always. A long family tradition on my dad's side so we keep it going.

    But...Adrian got the decorations out of the loft/attic today. No idea what he's up to.

    As soon as my management company realise that charging $50 an hour to put them up is too steep?!

    Usually the first weekend in December, although the tree will be later as it sets off our allergies.

    We usually put up all the decorations for Christmas right after we take down the Thanksgiving/Fall decorations in the house and on the mantle. That is usually on the Sunday after Thanksgiving (while watching some football).

    My museum has been at it over a month now. We have our changing exhibits set up with Holidays around the World and the Gingerbread Village. It isn't open to the public yet. We have a wonderful display that was donated to the museum from a local legendary business (Coleman Nursery) to operate for the season. Folks from miles around used to come to Coleman's to experience the beautiful displays and trains. Now we have it and it takes a small army to put it up. We have a music festival with bonfires on the street cornors and the whole cityscape comes alive. This Grand Illumniation takes place next week with a big parade in Norfolk. Glad I don't have to put up all the decorations at the group of musuems as I fear it would turn me off to getting my own home set up.

    I wrote a program for the planetarium that incorporates the Nutcracker Suite with our winter night sky. We have our own Osborne Lights type display with snow machines, dancing lights and holiday music on the mall outside our museum.

    I'd say yes, Kate. Thanksgiving has some autumn inspired decorations, pumpkins, leaves, corn stalks, the like. Thanksgiving can also add Turkeys and Native Americans that sort of thing. Christmas by far is the holiday with the most decorating options.

    Hah...you haven't seen my wife's fall stuff! You can barely see the fireplace mantle. DW Sallyl loves to decorate just about every season but is not nuts about Christmas decorating...too much pressure! Hehe
