I've got the main tree up. It's got fall colors for decoration (burgundy, purple and gold). I've also got white lights I hang under my kitchen cabinets during daylights savings time. I call them my anti-depressant lights.

I won't haul out the indoor decorations until the day after Thanksgiving.

HOWEVER....our outside decorations have been up since right before Halloween. DH hates putting lights on the roof of the house when it is slippery and snow is going down his neck. Plus, the ground will be froze for my in-ground decorations if we wait until mid-December. A lot of people do the same thing here, because our weather can turn miserable very, very quickly.

The lights do not get turned on until after Thanksgiving. I want to enjoy each holiday separately, not all blurred together.

I love snow globes!

The only thing I've put out is a new hand towel I bought last night - just couldn't wait to see it up in my bathroom. I did hang my outdoor lights, but they're not on yet. I probably won't put stuff up until the day after Thanksgiving (although the lights go on Thanksgiving night!)

Have very rigid Christmas decoration and Christmas song rules at this house. No Christmas until after Thanksgiving.

That said :)

Buddy has been practicing Christmas song on the cello for a few months now. Little Miss is starting to learning Christmas songs on the keyboard at school.

Little Miss made a power point presentation on Swedish Christmas traditions. Had to pull out Christmas decorations to photograph for the presentation.

I took the opportunity of the Christmas decorations photo shoot to change my avatar .
<=== isn't he cute?

Not really, hubby would have a fit, lol. I did pick up the gifts from my Mom today for the kids, they look so festive, so I piled them up on our front table. It looks sweet. I am making some Christmas items this weekend, can't wait to decorate!

DH wants to be involved with it this year, so we are going to decorate Thanksgiving day. I usually do that weekend, but this works. He works 6 days a week after that until Jan. :(
