    theres not much decoration for Chanukah all you need is a menorah but at 25 Its not as big a deal as it was when I was younger I still feel a little ripped off though

    I have a friend who is Jewish, celebrates Chanukah, but loves Christmas trees, so, she puts up a tree and decorates it. It is right next to the menorah. She crackes me up.

    When my children were little St. Nick brought the Christmas tree on the evening of December 5th so we would start decorating on the 6th. Now that the children are all grown up we start after Thanksgiving.

    They loved it! They had their own real tree to decorate anyway they wanted and I had my big fake tree that nobody decorated but me. Theirs was in the family room and mine was in the front window.

    We always had a smaller tree too when we were kids, that was put up and decorated all with candy while we slept on Christmas eve. We had a blast on Christmas Day eating the peanutbutter cups, M&M's,(usually inside an ornament) and lots of other goodies. There were also the "magic walnuts" hanging on the tree. These were hollowed out and glued back together with money inside. We all (children) got to pick one and there was 1 to 20 dollars inside them. (I never did get that 20) It was so much fun we continue it still with our families.

    I try not to decorate before the first of second week of December. I think any trees, lights or reindeers appearing before that is just ridiculous. I think society as a whole takes the Christams and its true meaning and turns it into a cash cow benefit. I only say this because I'm older now and much more synical and not as innocent.

    We usually have company for Thanksgiving so we decorate the day after Thanksgiving. This year we are going out of town so I will start decorating a week before Thanksgiving. Decorating our house gives glory to God and celebrates this wonderful holiday.
