I think I'd like to decorate on the weekend of the first of Advent. And put the tree up which will be interesting with a baby that demands attention, but Malcolm might enjoy the lights and the colours. Am generally quite stressed atm, but decorating or baking a round of Christmas biscuits are nice things which I don't want to miss out on.
I managed to have the tree up and decorated by the first of Advent. And then members of my family talked about how "all the Americans" out their trees up early and I didn't dare to say that ours was up at home. Most Germans do it on the night before December 24th and then only switch the lights on in the evening.
