When do you buy your Christmas tree?

I usually get my tree right after thanksgiving, but I think I'm going to wait a bit later this year because the Christmas spirit is a little late this year . When do you normally buy your tree?

Re: When do you buy your Christmas tree?

Today - usually the weekend of Thanksgiving. Made a big thing of it. The farm we go to offers food and hay rides. Dumped $120 on lunch, a tree and a wreath. Put the lights and garland on it and the rest of the decorating will happen after the kids clean their rooms.

Each year Pepsi gives us Christmas statues that I am always excited to pull out and set up. They're all really cool and each of them has a bottle or two of Pepsi somewhere on it. Got 4 of them set up already, I just need to find my Mountain Dew snowboarding Santa and I'm done.

Re: When do you buy your Christmas tree?

Last year, we waited til the last minute, went into Target, found one that was almost dead, and bought it for $5!!!! I guess that at my dad's house we're not big on tradition. We slaughtered Thanksgiving and we don't care too, TOO much about Christmas trees.....

GOOD TIMES MAN.

We have a fake, and we put it up 3 days before Thanksgiving. I'm not a big Christmas person, but the GF is so up it went with all the other knick-knacks.

Normally following Thanksgiving, but due to the new Holy Terror addition to the family, I'll have to pass on a tree this year

Hmmm....I wonder how long it will be until I can stop hiding the T.P.

We buy it in the middle of December. It usually stays in the living room until the middle of Januari.

Kind regards,

No tree, please. Save the environment.

1st of december.

To me, xmas is all december long, so it starts on the 1st and will finish the 2nd of january (likely because I can't be bothered taking the decorations on new years day.)
