So exactly when do you hang up your Christmas lights? When is too early or too late? What's the perfect time or date to decorate the outside of your house for the holiday season? Well, we're still seeking answers to this question, but we want to know your thoughts and opinions on the subject. Take the quick poll below.


I think most people, or at least the answer we hear most often is right after Thanksgiving. That seems to be the most popular time to hang up the lights and get the outside all decked out for the holidays. This year people are getting into the spirit early. We've seen several houses all lit up since late October, crazy.

Christmas lights

I usually wait until the weekend after Thanksgiving to put up the tree and do any outdoor decorating, this year will be no different. For me the Christmas season doesn't officially kick off until you see Santa Claus at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, then it's game on. I know some people don't start decorating until December 1st or even the middle of the month. I think that's a little late, I mean it's a lot of work to do all that decorating just to have it up for a few short weeks before it's boxed and put away.

Oklahoma's Weirdest Thanksgiving Foods

There is no shortage of weird Thanksgiving traditions around the Sooner State. Even my own family celebrates in our own unique way. Half of us hate turkey, and the others hate ham. Mom hates to spend days cooking for a 20-minute meal, and we all get tired of the leftovers. Instead, we have either a taco fiesta or a Chef Boyardee pizza kit party. Nobody complains.

We're not the only family with a weird Thanksgiving tradition, just take a look at these shockingly common Oklahoma TG dishes. It's amazing what the cooks come up with. The list is heavy on gelatin and jello molds, if anything it'd be worth trying at least one this year. They range from mild to wild, best of luck to you.
