When do you decorate for the holidays?

My mom flies in tomorrow evening and then my step-dad will be here Tuesday. Lucky me gets Wednesday off as well.
We are also having some friends over for Thanksgiving so we will have a full house (we live in a townhome so not a whole lot of room).
Anyway, while I was cleaning I decided to go ahead and make room for the Christmas tree (we bought a fake last year much to my hubby's dismay).
Our family tradition is to decorate Thanksgiving weekend, but I am kinda considering setting the tree up so we can do it Thanksgiving night (I think I am excited because this is my first Christmas being a mommy and I know she won't remember it, I will always remember her first Christmas)
So when do you set up your holiday decor?

Now DH & I get the tree 2-3 weeks prior to Christmas, we like it to be sort of fresh on Christmas day and take it down shortly thereafter.
When I was shopping for Halloween candy at Ralph's they were decorating for Christmas - it was madness!

We to keep all our stuff up until after the Feast of the 3 Kings. I think my mother would kill me if I took it down sooner, oh and so would the cat who takes up residence under the tree.

Since I moved in with FI I want to start decorating super early, but he's set a date of Dec 1 for me because I"m super eager. LOL!

Anyway, it's kind of good that we did wait, because I guess since he's crawling around and getting into everything, I have to buy one of those babygates to put around the tree. I just wish they weren't so ugly
