I've never decorated for Christmas.
Even growing up, the house was never decorated for Christmas. Most years my parents would just plug in this one-foot-tall fiber optic tree, and that would be it. Some years we would actually buy a tree, but our family has actually celebrated several Christmases with a "Christmas Branch" that my dad found in the yard.... yup.
I have a three year old, and this is perhaps the worst year to decide that THIS IS THE YEAR. I am GOING to decorate for Christmas. I will learn how to string lights on a tree. I will hang stockings. I will do it all.
Last year after Christmas, I hit Walmart and bought lights and everything else I could get my hands on, but there were no ornaments, christmas cards, or trees.
So I have been looking around for an affordable tree, for ornaments, and for someone to teach me how to do the whole thing!
Anyways, I suppose I don't know when is a good time to start decorating, but I do know this is my year :)
