I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet, but this past weekend I managed to talk my husband into putting up our Christmas tree—am I crazy?
I’ve been trying to talk my husband into putting up our Christmas tree for weeks now—yes, sadly since right after Trick-or-Treat—like literally we came home, checked candy and I was like, “So Jamie, feel like getting out the tree?”
Of course he looked at me like I had three heads, and I didn’t get my tree up that night, but I was on a mission to get it up—before Thanksgiving!
So, last night was THE night, I finally talked him into helping (I hate putting the tree up myself—I actually just set back and direct the others on what to do). So naturally like every other second of my life, I posted about it on Facebook, and while for the most part the response was positive (lots of likes) my best guy friend decided to let me know that I was showing Thanksgiving no respect. Hmmm, I hadn’t really thought of it like that before.
Am I majorly disrespecting Thanksgiving by having my tree up before turkey day? I really don’t think so as we celebrate Thanksgiving as happily with the tree (maybe even a lil happier) as we do without it.
What do y’all think? When is it too early to put up the Christmas decorations? When do you put up your tree? And just in case you’re totally against putting up the tree before Thanksgiving…just look at how cute Lil’ Man and Lil’ Diva are hanging ornaments—that’s reason enough for me!
