    It's on the agenda, although I am not looking forward to it. I'm the one that ends up finishing when everyone else has to leave for some other social activity later on.

    Pre-Christmas has us setting up for Halloween, that comes down and we set up for fall.

    We're big on tradition around my house.

    We always use a live tree so we have a limited amount of time. We figure about 3 weeks. So the tree will go up around the 10th of Dec. The family goes out with our trusty saw, after allot of walking and deliberating we finally select a tree. Cut it down, carry to the truck, tie it down and go out for the tradition pre-Christmas dinner.
    That night, the Christmas music is played and we sing carols, drink some wine, and put ornaments on the tree and decorate the house. Then we watch a collection of Christmas cartoons. Then my wife reads my daughters selected Christmas stories. The next day, I put up the Christmas lights and outside decorations.

    Then tradition has it all coming down new years eve.

    Well, at least that's my excuse for not putting any up and I'm sticking with it. Image, ya know.
