    Is there an official Tree Day? Do you have strict rules or family traditions about when to loose the spruce? Do you ever stir the fir before December?

    1st December or nearest weekend after. Daughter is always chomping at the bit.

    Although, with 4 cats, 3 of whome have never seen a Xmas tree, its likely to be down more than it is up. We have a rescue that is 18 months and two almost fully grown 6 month old ragdolls.

    Christmas Eve, as per tradition, then down it comes on Twelfnight.

    There are 12 days of Christmas, and none of them fall prior to the 25th December.

    Christmas Eve, then down on Twelfthnight if you're doing it 'by the book'.

    As late as possible and down straight after New Year's day.

    And that's about a week too much for me!
