No decorations for me other than a tree which will firm part of my nativity scene. It will be the weirwood in Winterfell as I recreate the climactic scenes from the battle.

Just walked past a house with a Christmas tree up, lights on. Disgraceful behaviour.

Aye we've got a neighbour a few doors down who has decorations up already including full blown outdoor lighting.

We've got a rule of no decorations until after the little one's birthday (4th Dec) so we don't ruin his birthday.

His nursery however already has decorations and tree up and we've got breakfast with Santa this Saturday morning there :dread:

Gave in and bought the tree. I walkways end up rushing as we go away for our anniversary and always end up with no working lights or whatever. Basically I need to get the Christmas stuff out to make room in the cupboards for crap we've accumulated. So I've got a tree and it's going up tonight. strawberry float the haters.

Home Alone is a late game Christmas movie in our house, usually get that one on once the kids are off school and we're on the final run in to the big day. :wub:

Quite like the look of the new Christmas movie they're trailing on Netflix at the moment, Klaus I think it's called. Definitely be watching that one with the kids.

I'm waiting on a load of presents to arrive at the moment. I'm normally more ahead of myself than this, but at least I've got a few bits ready.

I still need to buy a new tree, the old one looks like it's about to fall into bits!

All Christmas shopping done :toot:

Well I might buy a few more things, but if it was Christmas day tomorrow, I wouldn't be thinking I should have got more.

Tree up in 1 week :wub:
