We wait until later for decorating. Santa brings our tree

Marilyn in Michigan said...

No Christmas lights up! Love your sweet little deer tag today.

Sandy said...

Lots of cute details on these tags.
We always wait until sometime in December to decorate, but here in the southern U.S., most people deck out as soon as Thanksgiving is over -- they also take everything down before New Years Eve.

Donna said...

Such cute tags... and yours is amazing with the B/W contrast on red, Tracey.
In the UK, most people wait until the 1st of Dec... or the first weekend after it onwards...
except for my neighbours. They put their's up yesterday!!!
We haven't started decorating in my house as yet!!!

Michele Henderson said...

I love the beautiful coloring techniques on all these tags! We usually decorate over Thanksgiving weekend!
Take care!

A set of whimsical, wonderful tags! Delightful, all! Living in a townhouse complex, we have tight restrictions on the 'when' and 'where' of lights, so nothing up yet. Hope you'll share photos of your lights on your new home...I know 'dazzle' will unfold...
Hugs~c

Such adorable tags today! I love all of the sweet images...the penguin is especially adorable!!! I definitely do NOT put up Christmas decorations, lights, etc. until after Thanksgiving is over. I love Thanksgiving and think it is worth celebrating on its own...there is no rush! Many radio stations are already playing 24-hours of Christmas music and I won't listen to them them until Thanksgiving is over. It's definitely a thing for me...it bothers me how commercialized Christmas has become and I want to take the time at Thanksgiving to appreciate and give thanks for all of my many blessings.

Linda said...

We usually wait until after Thanksgiving. One holiday at a time.

Rachel Bergfeld said...

As a kid, my parents always waited until after Thanksgiving to put up the lights. In fact, we usually put them up on Black Friday after all the shopping was done. That way we still had family around to decorate with us. It was a nice tradition and one that I still maintain to this day.

Mary Holshouser said...

My lights will be going up after Thanksgiving.
that weekend is when everything gets put out and I'm ready for Santa to come bring presents.
Love the little stamps. So many darling designs.
The tags are wonderful.
thanks.

Marianne said...

Such a sweet and fun selection of tags from Kristy and her DT, and I absolutely love your sweet and totally CAS tag.

Denise Bryant said...

Delightful group of tags today! I'll be checking out Some Odd Girl!
We sometimes put our lights up earlier than Thanksgiving, depending on the upcoming weather, but we don't start lighting them til after Thanksgiving! This year they aren't up yet though, and our temperatures are still mild!

Marisa said...

Mine are up already. After putting them up in the wind, rain etc. and hating it, now when there is a sunny day in mid-November, up they go. That being said, I do not turn them on until Dec 1st.

Asha said...

The tree, lights and the entire kit and kaboodle go up on Advent Sunday at our home. ... just one more week and the madness begins! ;) I'm loving these cute image on the tags.... just sooo adorable.

Rahmat said...

These are such cute tags with adorable images, love your one with the lovely colors and the zigzag.

Lindsey said...

Sweet tags today! I thought the Christmas lights should go up (but not on) while the weather was still reasonable, but life got in the way. It may be a cold light-stringing session now! ;)

TracyM #6773 said...

Another fabulous line up of tags! Your little reindeer is as sweet as can be! No lights or decorations for us until after Thanksgiving, never ever! I like to give Thanksgiving it's due. We have so much to be thankful for. It's a special day with family all gathered at our house!

Tracey, Your card is so elegant and sweet, love it! And love all sweet inspirations today!

Patti said...

I am loving this whole series of tags. That reindeer stamp is adorable! Our outside lights are on the house since it is easier to hang them before the deep freeze in the upper midwest, but we won't turn them on until after Thanksgiving. Inside decoration will start next Friday, with the tree a few weeks later.

Diane Jaquay said...

So many cute critters today, these tags are adorable! We always wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving to put up our tree and decorations.

Kim Heggins said...

Wow...love all the wonderful tags today, they are all so sweet.

I'm a Little Teapot said...

They are so stinking cute!! Such sweet tags!

We pick out our Christmas tree every year on the weekend before my birthday- December 15. It is a tradition I look forward to every year.

OH Babs said...

As an American we wait until after Thanksgiving, usually the Saturday right after turkey day.

Indy said...

So so cute! As to the Christmas lights, our outside lights are put up usually before Thanksgiving since the weather is usually nicer. However, we do not turn them on until after Thanksgiving.

We wait for the weekend after US Thanksgiving. I love to appreciate Thanksgiving on its own. These are all so cute! I love your uncolored deer, your tag looks retro like that!

ionabunny said...

Love these fun tags. I think 1st december is the earliest I would put up lights or decorations. Hugz

Marilyn said...

Thank you for your event ... no lights ... just enjoy the ones others have.

Tessa Wise said...

Love the tags! So cute!! We wait until the first weekend in December usually and then go all out! I love Christmas time! :)

Greta said...

Oh my goodness--I love your tag, Tracey! I always hope hubby puts up the lights the week of Thanksgiving, but there's no guarantee--haha! It's a lot of work & he's no spring chicken, so I try not to push him even though the lights are my most favorite decoration of the season!

Sandi said...

Oh, I sooo love Some Odd Girl stamps...these tags are absolutely adorable. We are putting our lights up tomorrow because we are on vacation this week and the weather is supposed to be nice but we do not turn them on until Thanksgiving night.

Irene Grau said...

I love SOG's animal stamps -- the style is so cute! Those penguins are just too adorable, as is that cheeky deer. Alas, we don't put up lights. Both of my parents being from other countries, those aren't traditions they grew up with, so didn't really feel the need to participate in here. Oh well. Fortunately, we have a couple of local neighborhoods where the entire neighborhood goes overboard with lights. It's always a lovely event to go (and usually wait in line for a good hour or two in the car queue), see all the lights, often meet the homeowners, and get filled with the joy of the season.

Berina RGA said...

We wait till the American Thanksgiving weekend to start decorating for Christmas. Before coming to the US, in India, we wait till the first weekend of December to put up the lights, tree and stars. Beautiful tags..

Kit said...

No lights up yet but later this week. It will be a little warmer to get it done. I love these tags.

Marsha said...

These inspire me to make some cute whimsical tags. Thanks. We never start decorating until December 1 at our house.

Jinny Newlin said...

Cute, cute, and more cute! Lights near have and never will go on before the day after our Thanksgiving, but sometimes they make it up before then, especially if the weather is nice.

Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) said...

No lights yet, but excited that my night manager at the motel was planning ahead with the storm that's coming, so the lights will be on over there before Thanksgiving.

Crafty Math Chick said...

YAAY! I LOVE SOG! Especially their cute critters! These tags are adorable! Lights BEFORE Thanksgiving?!! GASP! Never!

Mary-Anne V said...

Lovevthe cute images on this tag. Christmas lights go up after our American thanksgiving.

Bobby said...

That deer is darling, Tracey, and I have a punch like the edge of your tag. Forgot about it until I just saw it here. No lights for us. We have no outdoor outlet and my husband is a Scrooge.

Miriam Prantner said...

Oh I love that reindeer image, I haven't see that one yet! We don't do lights outside the house, but the decorations are coming down from the attic this weekend!

Karen King said...

Cute tags today.
Our lights are put up before the weather is too snowy or cold but usually don't put them on until Dec 1st.

Jean Bullock said...

We don't put lights on our house. However years, ago when I did, we did it on Thanksgiving weekend.

Joyce said...

Very cute tags, yet again. No Christmas lights up for us, although our neighbor has had hers up since Halloween. (yes, really)

mandalj said...

Where are all these new (to me) stamp companies coming from? They're providing endless tag inspiration! We don't do Christmas lights at all.

Birgit said...

Wow! It seems as though I've missed a whole week of visiting and seeing all these fabulous tags!! These are all so sweet! (dropping my head in shame), we don't put Christmas lights up. Just decorate the inside. Thanks for the chance to win anyway!!
