Depends…real tree would go up in December likely around 10th-18th. Fake tree would go up right after Thanksgiving.

Always hated fake trees, had it only couple years when young. I broke down and bought a nice fake one last year; was more convenient for our current circumstances, but plan to go back to real soon.

We’re hosting Thanksgiving this year and wife wants me to put it up tomorrow. I’m hoping she forgets…as the tree should not be up before Thanksgiving. I’m sure I’ll be told to do it 20 mins before everyone arrives even though I’m cooking.

We always put it up just before Thanksgiving and take it down just after New Year’s. My wife enjoys it. Artificial Christmas trees are great. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! 32C4EC4B-082F-464D-A4CA-A29FAC706362.jpeg

Always cut down a live tree at a great tree farm nearby. 2-3 weeks before Christmas. It stays up until needles start to drop.

Thanksgiving weekend when more of the family is home for the holidays, which this year will only be the wife, my boy, and me. I put it up, hang the lights, then we all do the bulbs and other memorabilia of past holidays. That is when old time memories get revisited and talked about and cherished, it is a good reflection day of what to be thankful for in life.

Family tradition is it goes up on my birthday:( December 2nd
Never understood how the tree and my birthday are related, I also got very few gifts for my birthday as a little kid, because Christmas was coming????? WTF!!! That's what has always been done in our family and for some reason my wife continues the tradition in our house even after 34 years of marriage. Now my kids and grandkids expect it so it still goes up on the 2nd and comes down January 1st

I think my parents finally figured out how fucked up that thought process was and I got a brand new PUCH moped for my 14th birthday! That made up for years of shitty birthday presents. The I got a compound bow and a Winchester shotgun for my 15th birthday and new tires for my truck for my 16th (I paid for truck raising FFA hogs) so I think they got it and where trying to make up for it. My brothers always got really good birthday gifts the entire time we were growing up, I had to wait until I was 14 to start getting the good stuff:cool:

The Leg Lamp....now that's another story, it stayed up all year this year!!!:love::ROFLMAO::love::ROFLMAO: Come by my house in July and the front window was lit up with the Leg Lamp!:whistle::whistle::whistle::whistle:

Oh and to get back at my wife for knowing she was going to keep up that tradition, I MARRIED HER ON MY BIRTHDAY TOOOO!!! 34 years ago in a week and a half! Although I wasn't thinking as I cut my yearly sex allocation in half by marrying her on my birthday!:cry::cry:

One of my Christmas memories, unfortunately she won’t be under the tree any more
:(….

It was her favorite spot, and I now realize why, because she was gift from God, and an angel waiting to be by my side again someday. Miss you Kaci

That picture taken just hours before she died, on Christmas Eve no less
:(……

Sorry to hear. Pets are part of the family.

THANK YOU, yes, they are, sometimes the best part, they seem to never be mad at you, never shun your attention, never say no to wanting to play, never say no to keeping you warm at night, never complain about what’s to eat, never complain if the house is dirty, never complain about the car parts you bought, but are never around long enough unfortunately

I have 72a, NFW I'm buying a tree! We go out and find 2-3 pine saplings, cut then down, trim them, then ty wrap them together into a composite tree and it looks better than most lot purchased trees! In Jan I throw it on the ground outside the front door then it gets buried in the snow. I throw it in the woods late spring after the snow melts. It still has all its needles! Living in the woods has some advantages, like shooting a .223 in the back yard!

We go to the tree farm the day after Thanksgiving and put it up that day. Our real trees stay green and keep most of their needles into MLK weekend when we usually take it down.
This year, we will be in Florida for Xmas, so for the first time in 20 years we have a fake tree in the living room. Don’t trust the house sitter to water it ;)

We love Christmas, so if we can get a month and a half out of it, we will.
