What's the rush? No decorations go up here until xmas eve when the tree comes in.
May go back & buy that glass star though...

the glass star is the best one there. besides, Oscar would appreciate it.

Oscar has already appreciated several christmas decorations to death. The box of plaited straw stars seems to offer particularly toothsome treats. Am more than mildly apprehensive about this year's tree...

I imagine Oscar will adore the tree and all the little interesting things you put on it for him to play with.

yes you must get that glass star

I like to put my decorations up just before the girls come home - nearly started early this year as got the tree Wed - but then thought no as Mog is sleeping in the dining room. Did put cards up and wreath on the door before Helen came home for the day with Martin (Ninja C M), Mason and Lawrence

Cards it seems churlish not to put up when they arrive, always providing of course, that they arrive after the 1st Sunday in Advent.
Will the baubles distract Mog from quiet rest?

I have just decorated the tree, complete with beloved action figures and handblown glass. The halls remain to be decked.

what is the schedule you have? it is new to me.

edit. did you get the star? oscar really would like it.

I was always one for puting up all decorations on Christmas Eve then taking them down on the 5th of Jan, in the traditional way, but it seems that the popular thing now is to whack em up at the start of December, so under pressure from the kids I finally got our tree at the weekend and we are all decorated out...

Liking the glass things there - maybe when my lot are older. Lots older...

We had some wonderful blown glass things when I was a kid - Venetian maybe, old certainly. Mum kept them in a Special Box & we were allowed to place just one each on the tree, when deemed old enough. Sadly, not all survived. Just remembered; we thought they were so good we even gave some of them names.
Kids is odd. Cute, but odd.

Schedule, as requested:
Cards up anytime after 1st Sunday in Advent.
Going carolling is only allowed after Gaudet Sunday.
Exterior decorations may go up anytime during the last week of Advent.
Tree in on afternoon of Xmas Eve, in time for mince pies & the Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols from King's College on the radio, while we dress it with lights & put up paper chains etc, around house in time for tree-dressing party in the evening.
Tree out, decorations down, all gingerbread & mincemeat eaten or binned by midnight on 12th Night.
