Normally we put it up after my birthday (8th) but this year we put it up yesterday as the next 2 weekends are really busy and just wouldn't have the time to do it.

I imagine we'll be desperate to get the thing binned by Boxing Day, it'll no doubt be completely dead by then :slol:

I used to complain about xmas starting too early with decorations up in the office and all that shite, but now I think life in general is so bad that any excuse to introduce a bit of levity should be taken up. I haven't put the decorations up as I don't really care about xmas other than to enjoy a couple of days off work, but I wouldn't balk at anyone who decides to do so.

Thinking about it - I might be used to it being later as a kid the family tree was always real...it'd be dead by Christmas if put up now.

Fakes last longer I suppose

I don’t have one yet, but this is the right answer. I will also begrudgingly accept any day up to 25th November.

Back when I was a kid we would put the tree up after the last day of school. Was a nice little ritual - coming home all excited and getting it up, sticking all the lights and decorations around the house. :wub:

These days we tend to put it up a little earlier in our house, usually on the second weekend of December. There seems to have been a general trend toward everyone getting the tree up and decorations out earlier and earlier over time so I've gone along with that a bit. I still don't like to get the decorations up too early as I think it dilutes the season too much if it goes on for ages. We also tend to hold off doing too early because we've got various family birthdays and parties right up until the start of December so it's nice to not overshadow those with Christmas!

We’ve never bothered with a Christmas tree.

My lad is 3 now though so we might get one as I think he’d like it.

We put it up yesterday and I made the mistake of letting my wife pick the film... which was Let It Snow from Netflix:

A snowstorm hits a small midwestern town on Christmas Eve, bringing together a group of highschool students. They soon find their friendships and love lives colliding, and and Christmas morning, nothing will be the same.



I'm definitely picking the next film :capnscotty:

Bought it yesterday, not actually properly up yet. This is maybe the earliest I've had a real tree but it should be fine until the new year really.

It will! Just water it regularly and it's fine.
