I changed the photo today. Yesterday was more about decorating with bulbs and today about decorating with candles.
We put up our tree on the 3rd sunday in Advent. In the early years of our marriage, this was our compromise between puting up the tree at Thanksiving and the day before Christmas. Yes, our views were that far apart!
But I start decorating around the 1st of the month, just a few things everyday, very gradual. It's a lot easier than everything at once, less time and eases us into the holiday mood.
I hope you holiday decorating is going well.
