When To Put Up That Christmas Tree.

There is not a right or wrong time to put up a Christmas tree, it is totally up to you! The only important thing to remember is to get it up enough time in advance to enjoy the once a year delightfulness of the tree, ornaments, and lights. Although there is not a specific time to put up the tree, trends have been set throughout the years. One is to put the tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving. So if you are not a Black Friday shopper, this is your time! However, while that works well for artificial trees, live trees tend to begin dying after a few weeks. The classic tradition was said to be 12 days before Christmas, on December 13. Perhaps that is where the classic song comes from? But let’s face it, that’s just not long enough!
