    Just giving you a hard time, RM. My wife and I enjoy putting up the tree. We listen to our favorite Christmas tunes while decorating it.

    I love putting up the xmas lights, but I wait until after thanksgiving to decorate. I love the dark room with just the tree lit up. I love the Xmas season. To many awesome memories growing up and now being a parent of 3. When we were growing up my our house was decorated to the nines, but my parents always waited until after Turkey Day. My dad still uses the big bulb multi-colored lights. On the side of the house they have a pine tree that now needs a 40ft extension ladder to reach the top so he can put the star on top. Best memories were myself and brothers helping him hang the lights on the house and tree and as we got age appropriate indulge in some Miller Lites while doing so. Once we started marrying off my folks turned it into a family fun day which we still do.

    My house I can string the lights a decorations in an hour or so. I try to do it on a saturday when the Cats are playing ball so I can listen to the game, which last year was THE FUMBLE game against UL. I suppose the older I get the more Ill hate the cold but for now I love it and dont mind one iota to wait until after Thanksgiving.

    Merry Christmas everyone.

    Truth should shape people's politics, rather than politics shaping what people think is true.

    I don't mind the putting it up. I hate taking it down and I hate cleaning around it.

    There is simply no pleasing some people. I'm looking at YOU, @Watusi!

    I used to be big into Christmas decorations. My electric meter would spin like a ufo during the holiday season.

    Now, the kids stay at home for Christmas and we go to their houses to celebrate. I decorated last year, but I had special guests.

    I live at the end of a private road off a private road. I don't want strange people driving by, casing my house. In fact we are putting up a security gate to prevent people from doing just that. Mrs. will put up a tree and her interior decorations, but that's it.

    I'm not really an early decorator. If anything, I'm a late dissembler.

    Decorations go up some time the week following Thanksgiving. Most of them come down right after the Epiphany. A select group stay on display until February.

    Mr. Cat and I are headed to New Orleans for Thanksgiving. If I play my cards right and get invited back for Christmas, I won't have to do any decorating this year! Fingers crossed.
