Season. Christmas decorations are typically put up in late November or early December, usually to coincide with the start of Advent. In the UK, Christmas lights on the high street are generally switched on in November. In the US, the traditional start of Christmas time is Thanksgiving.

Furthermore, how much does it cost to leave Christmas lights on all night? You probably have at least 10 strands decorating your house and tree. Let's look at the electric cost to plug in 10 strands for a two month period (10-hours per day): LEDs: $20.70. Incandescent Lights: $69.00.

Correspondingly, do you leave your Christmas lights on all night?

Christmas tree lights should not be left on for prolonged periods of time or overnight. Even LED lights can overheat, and with a combination of a dry Christmas tree, could cause a fire. Make it a habit to turn off your Christmas lights every time you leave the house or go to bed at night.

When's the earliest you can put your Christmas tree up?

Tradition dictates that Christmas trees should be put up at the beginning of Advent – the fourth Sunday before Christmas. Others opt to put their decorations up 12 days before Christmas, or even on Christmas Eve.
