I have always been really cavalier about this whole debate. I was usually too involved in my college world to take a real side. All I knew was my Christmas list needed to be to my parents by the second week in November and so I would put it together, send it off and return to thinking about school. It has also been a strict routine that we put Christmas decor up the day after Thanksgiving. That wasn't so much me "picking a side" as it was "try not to stress the crap out of Mom by wanting to put the Christmas decorations up, k thanks." and "Well if we put Christmas decorations up now, where will we put the four foot high paper mache turkey that Mom bought at Quilted Bear?"
After I bought everything for our tree (which i'm so excited for and I hope it will turn out as cool as I am thinking it will) I realized, I had finally picked a side. At least for this year. My Christmas flag is up and flying and i'm READY. Mark has managed to hold me off on putting the tree up but last night I said "Ok, next Sunday. That's the day," and he admitted defeat. Sunday it is.
