Mine goes up the first weekend of December (or the closest to it lol). This year I will get the decs up on the 1st. What about you? What do you do? How mad do you go if at all?

Honestly by the time it gets to decorating the house, usually around 2 weeks before Christmas, I've had enough of it all.

It's December, tomorrow, so it's finally time for me to flip my mind away from summer and wishful thinking to the holiday season.

We have Sinterklaas in the Netherlands first, so we won't start decorating for Christmas until after that's done.

Personally, I tend to put something up around the 20th, way too late. And then around March 2019 I probably finally take it down.

One of my new years resolutions was to make this year count. And I honestly -without wanting to explain why- am disappointed with myself that I am not in the healthy position to have done that this year. And yes, partially to blame is just me being lazy.

I'd like to say that I will try again in 2019, but.. -without explaining why-, I do not know if that is possible. It's something nice to aim for though. I've done well on other fronts this year when it comes to some stuff, and I want to double up on that in 2019 and push myself to being less lazy and focus more on my mental health and physical wellbeing. Hopefully with the end result of having a nice(r) christmas that will make me happy.

It will be the skinny tree again this year if I manage to buy a new sofa set, otherwise I think I might go back to my fat tree this year... much prefer it but it's not a space saver in any way lol...

This is the usual scene at Christmas in my house... although the crazy will look less this year as I wont have all the family's presents...

Since I'll be living with my mom starting this November, I'm pretty sure we'll decorate as soon as I get there. xD

I have reconsidered a few things. I really want to finish tidying up some stuff in my apartment, and then figure out where to put my tree stuff, and just do it one more year before throwing it all out. It's just not the same without being able to share it with my father, or have my mom visit. We will see I guess, I can at least start doing the apartment stuff, and then review that idea again.

I'll put mine all up earlier this year, hoping to have friends around on the 11th for a Christmas meal/evening so I'll have then up before then.

Work wise, it'll be somewhere around December 1st.

My mom gave the troops the order to order her a tree before it's too late. They already said they deliver it but refuse to put it up. So my mom's asking around who wants to put it up and decorate it.

It's that time again!! Decorations go up next week BUT I don't know how long they will last as we have 2 little kittie rascals in the house now. So no presents waiting under the tree this year, but I'll bring them down in the morning!! Got so much wrapping to do but getting excited now :D
