Sunday Confessions Nov. 28, 2010

This is a weekly meme started by yours truly as a way to get to share a bit about myself and also learning more about you. Sometimes its about books and book related topics and sometimes it's not. This is all in good fun and I would love it if you would participate. 

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! This weekend has been so busy with friends, family and food.  Today we put up our Christmas decorations. My kids get so excited decorating the tree. I give them free range and very little direction.  My husband gets a little crazy putting on the lights. Every year we have the same conversation. He always insists that we need more lights and I disagree. Clark Griswold has nothing on him!  I'm pretty sure you are able to see our Christmas tree from space.  Decorating the Saturday after Thanksgiving has become a tradition for my family. So my question this week is: 

When do you put up your Christmas decorations, before or after Thanksgiving? 

You don't have to celebrate Christmas to participate in this weeks' meme. If you have any special traditions for this time of year, please tell me about them.


  1. My daughter (now college age) has always lobbied to put the tree up immediately after Thanksgiving, but I usually wait until at least the first weekend in December.
    Our tradition has been to open one present on Christmas Eve, and then wait for the rest until the morning.
    Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving!

  2. I decorate my house after Thanksgiving, but I get all my shopping done before :)

  3. It's always been our family tradition to decorate the tree on the evening of Thanksgiving. Crazy I know with so much going on. It's just a tradition that stuck.

  4. @TheBookGirl my kids always start lobbing in Oct. to put up the tree. LOL. We open up one present on Christmas eve too. I'm still a kid when it comes to gifts. I can't wait either. Happy Holidays!
    @Ketch1714 I am so jealous that you have your shopping done already! I always wait until after TDay to get it done wishing that I had done it sooner.:D Happy Holidays
    @Jennifer my mom starts to put up her decorations before TDay and we would put up the tree on Thanksgiving. It is crazy with all the things going on, but she loves it. :D Happy Holidays

  5. Our tree goes up on Thanksgiving day. our family is large and it takes till Christmas day for everyone to put their special ornaments on. between 7 children and spouses, 20 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren it takes that long for everyone to get to grams house. They also insist I bake Jesus a Birthday cake, I have been doing one for 49 years now.
    have have HAPPY HOLIDAY
