Paint Party Friday: Week 38, Year 7 Check-in

Welcome to Week 38 of Year 7 here at Paint Party Friday!

This week our random number generator chose #32 - Lee who is pondering this "burning question"... When is the best time is to put up her Christmas tree... and she is wondering when do you put up yours? And take it down? If you do decorate, please let her know in her comments or here if you prefer!

For EVA, her massive nutcracker collection slowly starts its exodus march from storage on U.S. Thanksgiving - 2x2, 4x4, 6x6, 8x8 etc until the final big boxes come out and the tree goes up on the weekend or two before Xmas. It comes down before January 6th. For Kristin (a self proclaimed procrastinator), the tree always makes it up before Christmas (but usually later than she'd like) and is taken down around January 6th.  This year, Kristin has made a promise to herself that all of the decorating will be done on the day after Thanksgiving!

As always, please make sure to use your post URL address NOT your blog home page URL address as there are many late visitors who get confused as to which post is for PPF when they arrive (after Friday) at your website. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Linky, an explanation of how this tool works can be found on Week 1 and Week 2 posts.
Have a wonderful week!

  9. What a beautiful painting! I'm not really sure when the tree goes up, I think it varies from year to year...

  10. It varies every year... in South Africa it went up Dec. 24. In America closer to Dec. 4. But I would like a whole tree farm like in Lee’s picture😉.
