Anyone else still not have their tree up?

I feel like such a Scrooge this year. I'm determined to get the tree up today. I normally have it up by dec 1. We moved 2 months ago and I don't even know where the ornaments are as they haven't been unpacked yet. Is it too early to start drinking?

You should just give up. No point in having Christmas now!!!

kidding of course. My mom is in such a bad mood lately because her tree isn't up yet. She's a busy lady and hasn't had time yet (their decorations take an entire weekend) and is going to be out of town until Christmas Eve night. This is the first year she won't be hosting Christmas in my entire life and I old her to give herself after pass. She's not having it. That tree (and then some) will be up even if it goes up the week before.

We always used to do it a few days before when I was growing up. Probably because of procrastination.

Right now, I have a partially attached tree (fake) in my living room. Two out of the three pieces are put together and only the bottom layer is fluffed. lol it's been like that for almost a week

I have been putting it off as LONG as possible, because I KNOW my 12 month old is going to try and climb it or eat it, and I'm just not in the mood to deal with that yet.

We don't because we had our interior un-wallpapered/painted and our carpets cleaned, and I couldn't put it up this weekend because DH was out of town and I'm pregnant and can't set up our huge 9 foot tree by myself. Tree is going up tonight!! I hate waiting this long. It is such a pain in the butt to put it up for just a few weeks.

We finally got a tree on Saturday, but we have yet to light or decorate it at all.

Re: Anyone else still not have their tree up?

We haven't put ours up yet. I have a cat who eats the lights. Yes, for real. My 3 yr old is crazy and will play with the ornaments even though he knows and understands that he's not supposed to. I'm pregnant and just don't have the patience to deal with it...or the constant vacuuming up of needles. Our tree is fake, but it sheds, especially since the cats use it as a chew toy. It will probably go up on the 21st when my kids are off school for winter break.

Re: Anyone else still not have their tree up?

The trees are up, but most of the outside decorations are not. I am not sure whether I want to bother to ask DH to put up all of the icicle lights, etc. now that it's snowy and freezing (and he isn't feeling well). By the time we would have a chance this weekend, they'd only be up for 2 weeks before time to take them down. I am a little sad about them, but I am really trying to decrease the stress in our lives this winter. With 3 school aged kids with 8 out of school activities between them and me working nights, we really don't have a lot of time for extra stress. I am contemplating buying a couple of lawn-type Christmas decorations to Festivus up our yard without the need for ladders and extension cords. I am also spending this week when I am not sleeping getting everything possible wrapped.

Sorry to hijack.
