When do you start decorating for Christmas? My family always put the tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving. All the lights, tinsel and garland would be strew around the living room. Years of ornaments made by my siblings and myself would be added to the tree. Some of the uglier ones would be put in back. Now as a mom, I planned to do the same thing with my Christmas tree. However, my boys always go to visit their dad's family and stay at grandma's house for Thanksgiving. It is a much needed break for me so I don't mind. It gives me time to string lights outside, fluff up the fake tree and get the decorations started. We then add ornaments after school and the following weekend. (The boys tend to move ornaments whenever I am not looking too.)
This weekend off also allows me to bring our Elf Jingle Georgie out of hiding. His first appearance is a big event. The rest of the month tends to be a little less exciting.
