"Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, Why are you too big to fit in my living rooooooooooom?"
Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to partake in the annual brag of who has the best/biggest/greenest/most ethically sourced/funky/alternative/pet friendly/pet unfriendly Christmas tree this year, as I have NO ROOM for a proper Christmas tree in my living room. (If everyone in the room could just go, aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh, here please)
Quite frankly, I don't know how my Instagram is going to cope. There go my late November/Early December postings. (Here's to all the likes I am never going to get)
Ok, so I am being a bit of a drama queen. I'm actually ok with not having a Christmas Tree this year, I am still not quite over the real tree fiasco of 2014 yet, and I am still finding the odd pine needle where I least expect it. (Don't ask)
and I am CERTAINLY not going to judge people over their trees and when they put them up, considering that once I add baubles to the wall decoration above, that will be my tree finished. (Hmmmmmmm, I'm pretty sure I can Instagram the shit out of this. Plus, PINTEREST, HERE I COME)
But WHEN is the RIGHT time to start putting up the tree anyway? Some people have them up already, Some people wait until the first weekend in December. WHEN do I need to start cracking out the baubles for my tree?
This is the christmas tree equivalent of The Great British Bake Off, Timing is EVERYTHING.
I haven't even started Christmas shopping yet!!!! I know, I know. My Facebook is FULL of people who have not only started their shopping, but have finished, wrapped, and started next years shopping in the sales.
(This, my friend, is why the unfriend button was created, I do not need this kind of negativity on my social media. This is unexpected peer pressure that I can never live up to.)
I WILL start my Christmas shopping soon. I WILL start placing baubles on my 'tree" soon. I WILL start getting into the christmas
How about you?
When do you put up your tree? Is it up already? Have you started your christmas shopping yet, or are you waiting until the sales start at the beginning of December.
Let me know.
