How long do you wait?
Okay, i'm secretly dying here.....i really want to put up the Christmas tree!!!
But, two things are holding me back.
First, last year we had up the fake tree in the playroom all decorated with stuffed animals. We seriously have so many stuffed toys, we were quite capable of filling a tree. It actually looked pretty neat and i was excited for the kids to have their own tree to enjoy! Well, that lasted maybe 6 days tops!! The kids did a dandy job making sure those bottom branches would never look quite right again, and i ripped it down in a big ol' hissy fit to save it from any further damage. Well, after a year in a box, it's done. Kaput!
Note to self: Go Boxing Day shopping this year and purchase a new, cheap, fake tree.
Secondly, i always prefer a 'real' tree (above). So, to have a real tree, i must wait at least until the beginning of December. But that is still....oh, um...1 week away!
I really, really love the tree part. I can easily admire a tree for 6weeks. I'd NEVER be able to put it up on Christmas Eve!
How long do you wait? Do you have 'rules' on when the tree goes up in your family??
Real or fake?
