When do you put up your tree?

On Monday, November 5, the Department of Public Works (DPW) harvested Milwaukee's 105th Annual City Christmas Tree and put it in place at City Hall in preparation for the lighting event on Thursday, November 15 at 5:00 pm. For this week's episode of Ask the KISS Jocks, we asked them when they plan to put up their trees!

Riggs (5:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.): "I put up my tree when the peer-pressure from my wife gets strong enough that I can’t stand it anymore. So, like, next week? Probably.”

Alley (5:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.): "When do I put up my holiday bush? Huh? I’ll tell you when I put it up! I’ll put it up when I’m ready. Which is whenever I feel like going down to get the decorations out. Could be the day after Thanksgiving. Could be December 24th.”

Gibbons (5:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.): "When do I put up my tree? Well, I put up my tree November 1st. Buuut, I live with my girlfriend and her kids now, so, it’ll be whenever she lets me. Hopefully, today?”

JMatt (10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.): "When am I going to put up my tree? Ha! I’m a single guy, living by himself, I don’t need to decorate for anybody! So, I’m just going to consider the Milwaukee Christmas Tree as my tree this year and hey, that thing is already up, so I’m covered.”

Kraig (2:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.): "Hey! I put up my tree the day after Thanksgiving. I think that’s pretty popular. And it’s a fake tree and it already has the lights on it. Real trees are overrated.”

DJ Gee-A (7:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m.): "The question is, ‘when do you put up your Christmas tree?’ And I’ve always traditionally done it right after Thanksgiving. You do the tree trimming and everything, you know, make hot cocoa and all that; put everything on the tree. After Thanksgiving is when everything starts! Before Thanksgiving, I’m kind of like ‘ehh.’ I’m going to Walmart and every place else – even Starbucks, they got Christmas cups – there are Christmas trees in front of Walmart. Come on man! I just, after Thanksgiving! Don’t disrespect Thanksgiving. A’ight?”

Z (12:00 a.m. – sunlight, aka 5:00 a.m.): "When do we put up our Christmas tree at home? Ugh, man. I’m not the decorator, my wife is. So, when she tells me to put up the Christmas tree. If it was on my book, man, our house would probably be blank. Always have the lights off. Music would be loud though – 103.7 KISS-FM!”
