I put up my tree over this weekend but I had a "which Thanksgiving?" moment for the first question.
13th-Dec-2010 11:24 pm (UTC)
Yes, I probably should have said US Thanksgiving, since I doubt any of us would put our tree up October 13th, eh?
13th-Dec-2010 11:26 pm (UTC)
lol, I'd turn away in shame from anyone who'd do that. :D

Will put the tree up sometime between the 21st and 24th. I won't get home until late on the 20th and I know my parents won't make the effort on their own.

Just got all my shopping done today! :)

So technically the tree did go up some time between American Thanksgiving and December 1, mainly to get my toddler used to having it in the house, but it didn't get decorated until December 5.

Since we're always out of town for Christmas we haven't found any point in decorating.

I wrote a Christmas letter.

I have all my cards sitting here ready to go, they just need stamps.

Just got the tree up on Saturday, along with our other Christmas-y touches - flickering electric candles in each window, wreath on the front door and my little herd of reindeer votive candle holders on the sideboard.

I'm almost done with my shopping - mostly just need to get the stocking stuffers and possibly one more present for my son's girlfriend. I have ALL the wrapping to do, which I had better get started on. The kids will be home from college on Friday! Eep!

Tree's up the Saturday after Thanksgiving and down the Saturday after Epiphany, every year, no exceptions.

Also there's no way I'm getting a Christmas bonus. My boss is cheap anyway, and after he remodeled AND splurged for a new register system this year there's no way he'll do it.

I've listened to Christmas music, but not on an MP3 player. We have a radio station that plays nothing but Christmas music between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
