    we always have ours up on the 13th! As my bday is the 12th mum didnt want it to be taken over by xmas! So she waited until after my bday to start xmas. She was always desperate to get them up in november, she gets so excited! But even though i dont live at home anymore i will still stick to the 13th :D

    I don't decorate for christmas. I go home for about 10 days to visit my mom and by the end of that I'm done with christmas.. Our family doesn't give presents either, we just all donate to our preferred charities.

    I can't wait! Although my husband just shakes his head when all of our christmas stuff comes out. Classifying a lot of it as "junk". But I tell him "Listen! I spent a lot of time painting those when I was four!:rofl:" Time for some new decorations I think!

    I absolutely LOVE Christmas! I was just talking to my hubby yesterday about putting my Christmas lights up on the house on November 1st. In Canada, we have our Thanksgiving in October, so after Halloween there's no other holiday left in the year but Christmas.

    People think I'm crazy, but I'll be playing Christmas carols on November 1st. It's a tradition for me! :)
