The Christmas Itch

Is it just me, or is anyone else feeling that exciting little itch of Christmas already?

Last year I didn't get too creative, but everything looked pretty nonetheless.

The year before I had the decorations up in mid October and was in full DIY Christmas swing the whole season.  Yes, that is a real branch above our table.

And ideas for this Christmas' decorations are starting to swirl.  I'm thinking of a more rustic theme this year with lots of white, wood, and greenery.  

So when do you think you will start putting up your decorations?
