flist friday (on a saturday): getting ready  
Hello flist!

So December is now here! I want to say I'm sorry in advance, because all my December questions are probably going to be Christmas related!

What I want to know on this flist Friday is basically when do you start getting ready for Christmas...


When do you start getting your home Christmas ready as in trimming the tree, putting out decorations...?
When do you start looking for presents?
What is your favorite thing to do that you only do during December?

Also:

Christmas Trees... Real or Fake?

I want the real deal
4(28.6%)
Fake is easier
10(71.4%)
I don't do trees, I don't like fun!
0(0.0%)


When do you start getting your home Christmas ready as in trimming the tree, putting out decorations...?
The rule here is hat you have to wait until the 8th of December to trim the tree so I have to wait and the waiting is killing me! I've been wiating for 5 years to trim that damn tree at my parents! (On the boat I was making paper trees for me and Eric, bu we were too tired to celebrate since we were working like slaves on Christmas Eve and Day)

When do you start looking for presents?
I start thinking about presents in October and I go out buying them on the first week of December

What is your favorite thing to do that you only do during December?
Trimming the Tree... 5 years... FIVE YEARS! The waiting is almost over... Come to mama!!!

    As you know I am Italian, so good food is pretty important in my life... Like, I honestly get upset when I go to an Italian restaurant in the US…

I miss the smell of a Christmas tree, but honestly over the years we've found that artificial trees are better. It's less messy and we don't have to spend more on a tree that is slowly dying in our living room. Of course, we need to find another one because the one we've had for years came with lights already attached and all of those lights have burnt out. We need to find another one comparable to that soon.

When do you start getting your home Christmas ready as in trimming the tree, putting out decorations...?
Almost immediately as possible. At the moment we need to really start cleaning the house before any of that happens, though, such as making room for the Christmas tree.

When do you start looking for presents?
It should be way earlier than I normally do it. Most of my shopping is done online, unless I see something in a store and know impulsively that it is for someone. But otherwise, I try to find things online and we all know how shipping goes during these particular times of the year. I worry that the presents might not get here on time, etc.

What is your favorite thing to do that you only do during December?
I like going into stores and wandering around their Christmas displays. I do this for Halloween too, actually, but there is something extra special about going into a store and hearing the Christmas music and going through the aisles and looking at all the shiny ornaments and different shimmering lights. Just the entire mood of the holiday spirit gets me excited, tbh.

Awww Christmas displays are so nice <3

I always look for presents online but then I end up being too late for it and I go with the classic shopping... After all that's fun too! :D

I have a fake little tree too now because it's easier, but for years my dad brought home a real tree to trim! It was nice and smelled good.. Now they have a fake one (a pretty good one) because the cats LOVE helping and the real tree was just to messy with them jumping around xD I will go back to a real tree as soon as I have a proper home in the US and I can spend Christmas with Eric :D
