When is TOO soon for a christmas tree

So this may sound a bit crazy but I am seriously considering putting up our artificial christmas tree on November 10th.
It comes in about 100 peices and takes forever to assemble. Seriously its so annoying but I have had it for years and its large to fit our room that it goes in so I don't want to get rid of it. I normally put our tree up on Black Friday but it doesn't look like that will be possible this year as we have so much going on for the next 7 to 10 weeks. My son is away for a few days and I am really thinking that November 10th would be the perfect day to put it up. Anthing that normally takes any amount of time I have to double or triple with a 5 year old "helping" me. I know it sounds so early when I think about it but then I think well our town tree lighting ceremony is only a week later so its not that big of a difference..
So do you think its way too soon to put up the tree? I don't even have to decorate it then..just assemble it really and decorate at our leisure another time

First off, a faux Christmas tree is the work of the devil.

Lol. I think it's fine if you have a busy schedule, and time permits you to do it sooner. I'm seeing Christmas stuff out already!

We don't do ours until the first week of December, but it's cause we do a live tree. I say put it up whenever you would like to. Some friends of ours do their tree on halloween.
