When to put up the decorations??

Well the tradition goes the you should have your Christmas decorations up for the 12 days of Christmas so they would go up Christmas Eve and then come down arounf the 6th of January.

Now these days that tradition seems to have been thrown out of the window!! Shops have their decorations up the minute halloween is over and towns are switching on their Christmas lights throughout November.

I put my hands up I am one of many who puts there decorations up early. When I was living at home the decorations would be put up around the middle of December but when I moved out I decided that I would put my decorations up on the 1st of December. What can I say, I am a big kid who just loves the magic of Christmas and all that comes with it. However every year since I have moved out my decorations have gone up slightly earlier each time, my dad and I compete as to who has got theirs up first. I really am one of those people you love to hate I'm afraid. I think my decorations will be going up around the 27th November this year.

So what about you, are you traditional, do you have your own traditions when it comes to decorations?? Or are you a big scrooge that doesn't have decorations??
