What do you think about putting the christmas tree up now?

I know I sound silly, but my husband and I couldn't afford a full size xmas tree for the first couple of years we were together. He got a much better job and now we have went ahead and bought the tree and all the ornaments. We have a 6.5 mth old and we are excited to celebrate it with him. We are both very attached to christmas memories of our childhood and really enjoy that time of year, so it was quite hard not to have all the decorations and stuff for those couple years. We feel like we are justified in decorating because of this reason. The tree can be seen from outside at night. Will our neighbours think we are crazy? Are we? (Please no answers of "who cares what others think", I know this but would still like to know what others think) I'm not American so I already had Thanksgiving weeks ago! lol

My boyfriend put his up a few days ago, him and his parents always do all of their christmas decorations on November 1st.

most people wait until after thanksgiving (assuming you're american). your neighbors may think it's odd if you put one up so early. but, if it makes you happy i would go for it.

I've heard that a lot of people put a tree up about November 1st. Do what you want and if the neighbors say anything just tell them you're crazy...about Christmas.

No, it's not crazy at all. Christmas is only less than a couple of months away.

why not, theres people that don't take it down all year round.

I think it is too early. You are going to be a bit jaded by the time Xmas rolls around. It is better to wait and have a tree trimming event at the beginning of December.

It's only once a year, so enjoy it as long as you can. It wouldn't bother me. You will have that done, and have more time for all the other things you will have to do for Christmas.

I would suggest that this is rather early for the Christmas tree. Putting it up too early takes away the anticipation, the delayed gratification. Your 6 month old child does not know the difference anyway... More
