Am I the only one who still hasn't gotten up all the Christmas decorations yet?

  • In my neighborhood we have our holiday lights up to turn on the first time on the evening of Thanksgiving. I started putting up the rest of the decor after the holiday weekend. For me, I store that stuff in the garage for 11 months out of the year. I like to have it up as much of December as I can. After January 1 I start boxing the stuff up again. Just depends on what makes YOU happy and what you may have time for. As I see it there are no rules. Just enjoy any time you have with your family and friends. That should be first and foremost, not all the commercial hype.

    • I do not have any family, so I do it for myself. How much I do depends on how much time I have. This year some stuff will not get put up as my garage is full of stuff - and moving it to get to the Christmas stuff isn't going to happen. Cleaning out the garage is my first chore after the holiday season is over! 😉

    No decorations at all this year. Been sick since end of November. Thankfully I already made most of the gifts I'm giving. Shopping is finished. Nothing wrapped.

    To decorate or not is totally up to you. I have only put up some small decorations in the kitchen and the bedroom with one wreath on the front door. I have enough to put up decorations everywhere but I hurt my knee so this is all I can do. I ordered every child some books and the adults will receive a handmade family Christmas ornament. The kids want to do their own things but at least there will be something from me around the tree. My hubs and I exchange gifts--but I order those online too. Do we celebrate? YES! Snacks in the living room Christmas Eve and a fancy dinner cooked by hubs followed by opening the presents Christmas Day. Am I excited--YES because I get what I want! I have plenty of cookies if anyone wants to come by. I refuse to feel sorry for myself!!

    Nope, it came too early this year. Down from the attic tomorrow.
    it usually takes me a good week to put it all up, and a couple of weeks into Jan.
    merry Christmas! Lynne
