SWMBO wouldn't let me put up the Christmas decorations this weekend, citing that we should wait till December. What about you guys?

(P.S. If you don't do Christmas but do decorate for another December holiday, then substitute your holiday for the word Christmas.)

We're aiming for next week, which will likely make us the last house on the street to get decorations up. Everyone was out yesterday working like mad on their decorations, but I was making a run to the LHBS. Priorities, ya know.

Not yet though I have retrieved them from the attic. I'm trying not to go outside much as it is -23C right now here!

Nope, none for me. Inside, decorating would upset the spiders & outside, freak the wildlife. Everything is covered with snow this morning. Good enough for me.

[ 1" accumulation = VERY HEAVY snow warnings around here. Can we say snort? ]

Not yet, and I won't have a Clark W. Griswold hose either. Just a few lights.

Outside is done. Inside hasn't even been started. Weather here has been amazing. Upper 60's since last Friday so I've been on leaf patrol as well. The good thing is, I fired up the grill last night. Nothing like grilling on November 26th in Central Ill.

I just do the white icicle lights from the roof, a wreath on the front of the house with a green spot, white lights on the wrought iron porch supports and in the bushes in front of the porch and that's it.

Inside is a whole 'nother story. SWMBO is so sick of it by the time January hits. I dig decorating for Christmas.

Outside lights are up, I put them up the day after Thanksgiving. I couldn't pass up on putting up lights outside in Wisconsin in a t-shirt, it was sunny and in the upper 50s Friday. We even played horseshoes at the folks on Thanksgiving Day during halftime of the football game.

I don't do much outside, but we've postponed putting anything up indoors until this coming weekend. Officially December and all that...
