Is it just be or is it a little bit early for everyone to be putting up the decoration?
My parents started decorating their place at the beginning of Thanksgiving. They were the first one's in the neighborhood to have their lights and ornaments up. No tree yet though. But hey, it's never too early for Christmas lights!!!
As far as the tree, I have a fake tree that I've had for years. I think since college! I never really saw the point in getting a new one since the one I have is still perfectly usable and still looks nice.
Its better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than be in the air wishing you were on the ground. Fly safe!

Christmas is an overhyped joke. I make it a point to tell children that Santa is dead and that the only point to christmas is for large corporations to make money
While I agree with your second part wholeheartedly, I disagree with your first part. To some Christmas is more than just a joke, or a way for large corporations to make even more money, it's a special holiday.

We just put one real tree up. Now my girlfriend puts 5 trees in her house every year. Her family has a lot of space to fill. We just went and chopped down two this past weekend. I think they put up 4 real and 1 fake. Her mom goes nuts with the X-mas decorations too. It really puts you in the festive mood though.

I got real lazy this year and got one of those pre-lit trees that in addition to the lights has fiber optics that changes colors. All I had to do was take the tree out of the box, pull down the branches, put the tree into its' stand, plug it in, and then adjust the branches so the tree wouldn't look like Charlie Brown's tree. 10 minutes and I was done!
