We know someone that puts up 7 Xmas trees, + a lot of other decorations. I used to do more than now, but health & lack of space prohibit that, & I'm doing good to do 1 tree, stockings & Nativity Scene. Do U go hog wild over Xmas decs?Comment!

We do a decent amount, probably more than most people. I have 4 trees this year: a large floor to ceiling tree done in red and gold with red lights, a 4" white tree done in pink, blue, and purple with pink and blue lights, a small table top tree with multi-colored decorations done in white lights, and a white tree outside done in pink/red lights and garland. Plus, we have a snowman, a deer, and perimeter lights outside and archway, doorway, and perimeter lights throughout the downstairs, and I have a lit up Christmas village as well. Then there's all the snowmen, stockings, Santa figurines, etc. throughout the downstairs. It sounds like a lot here, but believe it or not, we just talked the other day and both of us feel our outside is lacking. We want to do more next year. Depends on money though.

My mom used to go hog wild with angels. She had a big collection of them. My dad is the total opposite. He has hardly anything up. No tree, just candles and his mother's nativity scene. BORINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG... I miss my mom's angels all over the place

I try to stay out of the way. My wife goes berserkers. It's her favorite thing, and I can't think of a reason in the world why anyone would want to take it away from her.

We have a ton of interior decorations, so I do get into it in the living room, entryway, and on the tree. Very basic on the outside of the house, though. Maybe that will change next year.

I don't have the time or energy with little ones. We do a tree, stockings, houses and nativity.

I go hog wild some years other years I go away and do nothing. I just do what I want to do. Other people are not in the decision making or in my enjoyment. I am happy!

I'm exactly like you. My Christmas has progressed from whole hog to: little tree, nativity scene, and 2 stockings. 🌠

Actually, it's not PC. It's ancient. X stood for "christos" or Christ in Greek and was easier to write. Xmas is therefore an ancient form of writing Christmas.

Martin is correct. You'll notice we also abbreviate Christian as Xian and Christianity as Xianity. I don't do it everywhere, but do it here because of the character limit of posts.

We don't put up much. Besides the Christmas tree, we have stockings, a nativity set, and one string of garland with lights.

Usually I go hog wild with Christmas decorating, but I couldn't put up as many decorations as I usually do this year because of the move.

I have a beautiful fireplace we decorate with a few stockings, a vintage nativity scene, cards, and we display all the gifts we bought for family in front. No tree. No lights. Just a few decorations that remind me of childhood.

We moved at the end of July. This year (and maybe the next few) will be me figuring out how I want to decorate and which rooms I want to decorate. This year, I just did the main floor living room and a bit in the dining room and kitchen as those are the rooms that everyone will be in the most. I also had to pretty much buy all new decorations as I threw out almost everything when we moved. Next year, I might buy more to decorate other rooms. I'll definitely get more outside decorations.

I didn't put up a single decoration this year. It's my first Christmas divorced and my daughter said she didn't want to have to put anything up so we decided to not do anything.

Sorry to hear about the divorce. It is only because our grown son and our granddaughters helped that we did it this year. It's been an especially rough year, health wise, and neither of us has much energy. I usually wash and use glass Christmas dinnerware, but was feeling so bad we just did paper plates this year, for the first time ever. I dread having to take it all down, which is always worse than putting it up, imho.
