It's officially the countdown to Christmas: I put up my Christmas tree today.
Different people have different criteria to determine when they put up their tree. One of my friends has a family tradition of putting up their tree on Grey Cup Sunday (November 19, this year). Another refuses to put hers up until after her birthday (December 8th).
Is there a common rule of thumb for a tree trimming date? I don't think I've heard of one...
I don't think I'm excessively early, though; hell, some folks have had their Christmas lights up since the day after Hallowe'en!
Now to do that whole "shopping" thing...ugh.
