This is the weekend to decorate the tree, the house and the yard, that shouldn't be too hard right? When do you put your tree up? Thanksgiving weekend? When I was a kid we used to put the tree up on Christmas Eve and take it down on New Years day.  I like having it up a little longer.  Thank goodness for the YMCA lot by Pattengil!  It was easy to find (though I would have gone bigger), but it was easy and it was a donation to the Parkwood YMCA.
