Always put it up on the day of the Immaculate Conception (8th Dec) and take it down on the Epiphany (6th Jan).... I'm not a Catholic, it's just that those two days are public holidays in Spain, so there's not much else to do!

Two weeks before Christmas,I get a real tree, present first choice Nordham Fir of 10 feet height, positioned in the family room. a tree this size takes 10 days to decorate properly with 750 C-6 lights and six hundred ornaments, all types from all over the world, and, if I have time, three thousand strands of individually hung icicles.

I love my Christmas trees.

Re: So GLP. Christmas trees and YOU. Let's hear it.
No one has proven the exact day that the saviour christ jesus was born in bethlehem

we know he walked the earth was crucified and died upon the cross buried and risen from the sepulchre..

here is a quote about trees decked with silver and gold.


Jeremiah 10 King James Version (KJV)

10 Hear ye the word which the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:

2 Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.

3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.

4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.


Although most Christians celebrate December 25 as the birthday of Jesus Christ, few in the first two Christian centuries claimed any knowledge of the exact day or year in which he was born. The oldest existing record of a Christmas celebration is found in a Roman almanac that tells of a Christís Nativity festival led by the church of Rome in 336 A.D. The precise reason why Christmas came to be celebrated on December 25 remains obscure, but most researchers believe that Christmas originated as a Christian substitute for pagan celebrations of the winter solstice.

Re: So GLP. Christmas trees and YOU. Let's hear it.
haven't participated in that pagan ritual for over 40 years - and what a blessing that has been


just imagine how much money and stress that I have saved myself by NOT participating
no decoration, parties, gifts, trees, - holidaze shopping and travel ... can't buy love or fix the past but it's never too late to do the right thing and stop this nonsense

Jesus wasn't born during the high feast of saturna - but you know that, and celebrate that lie anyway ... tisk tisk

do you REALLY believe that this holiday pleases god?

I can't tell you how grateful I am NOT to be sucked into that black hole every year --- or how blessed my life has been, because I never lied to my kids about the circumstances of Jesus' birth, his death and Resurrection and his transfiguration ...


free yourself with the truth about Christ-mass

Re: So GLP. Christmas trees and YOU. Let's hear it.
You don't want to get into the religious aspect but I will. In the Episcopal faith, Christmas does not begin until Christmas Eve. Advent begins four Sundays before Christmas. That time is spent in prayer and contemplation for the coming of the Christ. There are no alter flowers, only a little green. We do put up a Christmas tree with simple decorations. Before the Christmas services, we have the greening of the church. The church is decked out with flowers and wreaths and garland and candles and it is beautiful.

Christmas day is the first day of the twelve days of Christmas. Christmas is celebrated during this time with all hymns being the Christmas carols. I believe the Kings of the Orient arrived on the twelfth night, but I am not sure. Then Heron ordered all children under the age of 2 to be slaughtered and the Holy family fled to Egypt.

In the Christian calender then end of Christmas is marked by the Epiphany on the first Sunday after the end of the Christma's season which celebrates the baptism of Christ by St John the Baptist, or Christ bringing light into the world.

I love everything about Christmas: the lights, the songs, the smells, the movies, the decorations. So bring it on as early as you want! I am always sad to see it go, so, can you leave everything up as long as possible? 12 days after Christmas would be nice, but, if you could go at least til News Years that would be great!

Christmas trees represent white privileges and oppression. The tree symbolizes the lynching tree used by German Nazi slave owner Santus Klause. He heavily persecuted small people, or what he hatefully called "midgets". Santus was nothing less than a white devil in human form.

Week after thanksgiving and I go into the woods and cut my own.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72115403


This is why I moved to a little artificial tree. We used to do this when I was a girl, go tramping around in the snow out in the woods and bringing home a tree that was invariably too big. After my father died, Christmas was so depressing.

It stayed that way until I decided to drop going to the places that sold Christmas trees, with the little twigs of greens being trampled into the damp pavement, and the scrawny bedraggled trees, and all around sogginess. I was in my early 40s at that time, so I suffered for many years.

Instead of buying a tree, I went and bought an artificial tree and was not depressed that year. When the kids grew older and moved out, I took the top of it for the tree and threw the rest away.

No more awful Christmas depression for me. Christmas is not about trees anyway, it is a birthday celebration with deep spiritual, traditional and cultural roots.

I have the most treasured ornaments on the little tree, and when it's time to put it away, I carefully wrap it in a plastic wrap and put it away, ready to go for the next year, lights, ornaments and all, neatly packed away. I do have cut greens around the house though, and we enjoy the same Christmas fragrance all the same.

Enjoy your trip to the woods, AC, and give my regards to the tree you choose to take home.
