My neighbours across the road, who went pretty big for Halloween and only just got rid of their pumpkins, now have three massive inflatable characters on their lawn. They're going to be fun to live with.

On the plus side, at night it looks like the aftermath of a Christmas Mexican stand-off. Yesterday the Elf on the left hadn't quite inflated properly and was doubled over. Looked like Santa had kicked it in the nuts.

Copious updates in the neighbours thread please.

Its become a bit of a family tradition to put our tree up on the first saturday of December.

We now have the added joy of a 6 month old kitten to climb up and knock it over.

Doesn't look too bad although it does lean at slight angle and needs trimming around the base. Not sure how stable it is, Keep having to tell the kids not to touch it.

Probably the 14th this year. I'd be completely sick of it by the 6th of January if I put it up sooner. No way am I going have the house in Christmas mode for over an entire month.

I put up 4 at work today. I've had my tree and house decorated for over a week.

Traditionally my family only put it up the week before Christmas, but this year my wife wanted us to put it up early so we put it up yesterday.

Tree bought. Safely stowed in the back garden and will be put up sometime this weekend or next week.

GRcade collapses nested quotes. You need to click "show quotes" on the post to see them.

Starting to send out christmas cards and stuff now, so it's only a matter of time before i start work on the tree, been buying some fresh decorations from christmas markets lately to add to it.

I'm in quite the festive mood at the moment, and so may well even at some point, post the lego christmas story video i made 23 years ago (i invented the lego santa design before lego themselves did).

Tree has gone up in reception at work today. :toot:

People were putting it up as I walked in this morning and I made a comment saying "Nice, tree's going up!" Not sure if I had a sarcastic tone or whether those working on it we're just pissed off but my comment was greeted with a "if you think you can do better than do it your strawberry floating self!"

Gotta love that XMAS spirit! :slol:

Wow :lol:

Perhaps they'd had a few sarcastic comments earlier and resentment was building up?

I read this as "who do you put up your christmas" tree, which conjured some weird imagery.

This year apparently we are making a "flat" tree out of pallet wood and decorating that, because we're fed up of nursing miniature trees in the garden. I'm not sure if this affects the rules on when you put up the tree, which I'm personally ambivalent about.

pro tip for tree putter uppers, when decorating with lights make sure you squint at the tree, it blurs the foliage and you see where there are gaps nice and easy
