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!!!

"When do you start getting your home Christmas ready as in trimming the tree, putting out decorations...?"

For the first Sunday in Advent is when I usually decorate. This year I have held on a lot, but will put the rest of my decorations out in the coming weeks. It is lacking in nisser here at the moment. I have my advent lights and some other decorations out. The tree we buy some days before December 23 and decorate on the 23rd. I love that and it is me who do the tree these days. I wish I had room in my part of the house for a tree all for me, but sadly I do not. One day. I look forward to decorating it with only my own ornaments. We still use a real tree, but my parents wants a fake one. I do not! What about the smell?

"When do you start looking for presents?"

November/December. Some a done and for all but two I know what I am getting. I hope be done within the next two weeks. I want to be done when I am done with school and work, so that I use the holiday for fun and relaxing things. I don't enjoy shopping, and I like to buy online. I have plans this coming week for a shopping trip with a friend and I hope to get gifts bought then.

"What is your favorite thing to do that you only do during December?"

I don’t know, listen to my yuletide-playlist? I love that, but I must admit I have a sneak listen in summer when I am hit with a longing for colder weather and December! Also yuletide-dinner: Ribbe I also like to make some new ornaments/decorations each year and usually have a crafts day.

Since you mentioned the Advent, do you do the advent calendar thing? I've always wanted to, but I always forget to buy one LOL!

I like to buy online too... So that I have time to forget what I bought and be surprised when I get it LOL!

Tell me about it! I was stuck with Rudolph in my head the whole mont of April last year! LOL

No, not any more. I haven't done those or seen the advent calender tv-show for years. I always mean to watch one tv-show, but it's been ages since I have. There are many in Norway and I have many to chose from, but I never take the time. When I was a kid/teen I would get a package-advent-calendar with a small gift each day.

:D :D Both good reasons!

I am always hit with nostalga for yuletide sometime during summer! For whatever reason :D :D
