What'dya Think? Some Christmas Fun!

3. When do you put up the tree? This year we did it the day after Thanksgiving for I was off.  Usually it's the 2nd weekend after.

4. When do you take the tree down? After "Kings Day" which is January 6th I believe.  Then I usually decorate it for Mardi Gras!!!  I think I just might do it this year.

7. Hardest person to buy for? Hmmm, usually it's the person who has everything!  My father in law was.
