    At my place, never.
    At my parents' place, 1 or 2 days before xmas eve, just a tree in the living room, some candles and the crib etc.
    It's all old-fashioned stuff, no electric lights, except for the candles @ the tree, and indoors only. No garden or window stuff.

    Uh-uh. No X-mas decorations. I don't like 'em. My dear mother gives me various Santa Claus figures and candle holders every other year in the hope I will give in, the cupboards are filling up... :)

    My decorations usually go up the first week in December. When I'm done, the house usually looks like the one in Christmas Vacation.:D
     
  6. Me and dad usually set up the single line of lights on the 23rd. We're not real big fans of the whole christmas decoration thing.

    Wow, some holiday spirit you guys have, huh? My girlfriend and I already have our stockings and some candy canes hung up, and we'll have the lights and mistletoe up before Thanksgiving most likely. I love Christmas decorations-reminds me of all the GI Joes I got in my youth. We'll have the tree by the 10th or so :)
