So... a topical poll today... when do you put your Christmas Tree and Decs up?

If next weekend is slightly less busy than this one was, ours will probably go up on Sunday (2nd Dec).
(and I'm aiming for that too!!!!   )

The lights my home town are switched on this Friday


So... over to you; when are you doing yours????

No problems with towns going live in November.. me and Sandra did the Manchester German Christmas market last Saturday   but for homes, first week December here, more so for the kids to get the mood going.

I'm usually a 2nd week of December person, but I actually try to aim for 2 weeks before Christmas. And they stay up until 12th night. Funnily enough mine tend to be the last up in the street and the last down!

Maxine, you ain't seen mine when it gets done! It's tinsel and garlands everywhere... even the telly gets the tinsel treatment! Proper '70s style Red and Gold all over the place!   I'm not ashamed, I have very bad taste when it comes to decorating for Christmas!

it looks strange,but we put up the christmas week in the second week of dec.Some peeps in the netherlands put  up the trees at the end of november.For me,i think that those peeps are crazy.
The reason of why I'm thinking is this,is.........
We dutch and even the belgium peeps cellebrate sinterklaas.We cellebrate it on december the 5th and the belgiums at the 6th.For the children(small children) looks very stange if you put up the x mas tree,while Sinterklaas is still in the country.Then they asked you some questions about it.

What is Sinterklaas?

Sinterklaas,is just for children.In November he and his black pieten will come to holland with the steamboat and lots of children said welcome at him.He also ride through a city with a wite horse(called americo)
At 5 december we cellebrate his birthday.

But what I'm telling you all,not all the people know this.

fact 1 Sinterklaas does not come from spain.
where does come from?
In 270 he was born in  in turkey(at that time turkey was just catholic)
He became a bishop of Myra. and give the poor(yes the poor people,çause he was rich) money.and there are some several stories about him.6 december it was not his birth date,but the date he died.

But what about spain.Itallian people who had praise him,bring his bones to Bari in Itali
In that time Bari was in spanish hands.

Here in the Netherlands we celebrate it since the 13th century.So the children get a lot's of sweets and presents.
But at age of 6/7 the most of the children didn't believe in him,because sometimes they will be recognising somebody,who'd been sinterklaas.

Ahhh.... of course, I think I had vaguely heard once about this. It's the celebration of Saint Nicholas, isn't it? - well, that's what we call him, and he was the basis for Santa Claus. I'd forgotten that in the Netherlands and Belgium you still have this festival. Cool!   Now I understand why you say it must be a bit confusing for the children if people have their Christmas decorations up before that festival!

Oh. And my tree went up yesterday (not in flames, fortunately!!! )


And my fibre optic Santa in his rocking chair, smoking his pipe and reading the childrens letters is on the carpet, rocking away!!!


Don't do wreaths at Christmas - even those designed for christmas do look like they are destined for a funeral!!!  


Gonna do the rest of the room tomorrow night maybe... all the ceiling decs!!!

fact 1 Sinterklaas does not come from spain.
where does come from?
In 270 he was born in  in turkey(at that time turkey was just catholic)
He became a bishop of Myra. and give the poor(yes the poor people,çause he was rich) money.and there are some several stories about him.6 december it was not his birth date,but the date he died.

But what about spain.Itallian people who had praise him,bring his bones to Bari in Itali
In that time Bari was in spanish hands.

Here in the Netherlands we celebrate it since the 13th century.So the children get a lot's of sweets and presents.
But at age of 6/7 the most of the children didn't believe in him,because sometimes they will be recognising somebody,who'd been sinterklaas.

Thank you for telling us

We have 'Immaculate Conception' on 8th Dec which sort of gets the ball rolling (and the decorations up). Some areas do Santa Lucia on the 13th too where presents are given..but we don't 'do' her here.
San Nicola of Bari is on 6th Dec which sort of ties in nicely with the Sinterklass thing.

And 5 days til I put my decs up   I was going to do it this weekend, but I prefer to hang the decs when hubby's at work... and as the only night I'm free is Sunday and he's off it'll be Monday! Good thing is that he's at work til 2am all next week and the week after... so plenty of time from when I get home at 6 Just in case the ceiling garlands misbehave like they do every year!

Poor bloke doesn't know what's hit him when he comes home... although he's glad to be out of it, to be honest!

Poor, poor Djpamm...


My Christmas hols started yesterday. Worked quite hard and now almost everything's done.

Sorry for such a late reply (was sooooo busy at work)... , but big THANK YOU for your nice compliments about my decoration. To be honest- i rather often realise my own ideas, but look for them somewhere, so, almost all my decorations are just coppies...
