Tis The Season To Decorate

Create a simply stunning garland with ribbon and ornaments

Christmas is 42 days (6 weeks) away.

So how soon is too soon to start decorating? 

I decorate in stages

Sharon writes: I'm not sure why things evolved for us this way, but it's the way I've been doing it for years.  I think it started with not wanting to be tired of the decorations by the 25th.  Doing the tree so late had to do with minimizing exposure small kids and pets. 
  • The Christmas wreath goes on the front door, the candles go in the windows, and outdoor decorations go up around December 1.
  • The mantle and other non-tree decorating occurs around December 10.
  • The tree goes up sometime between the 15th and the 20th.
  • Everything except the wreath comes down between January 1 and the first weekend after January 1.
