My brother-in-law does the whole tree up and everything on Dec 1st every year and every year the tree is forlorn and sagging by the 25th.
There is something in the whole "Oh do you remember these?" when you get the decorations box down from the loft. I put cinnamon sticks and cloves in it so that every year it smells like Christmas when I get it. We have loads of poncey glass ones and disgustingly tasteful ones that have accumulated over the years as you might imagine. I try to buy the odd kitsch one like a Burger in a Bun or something, but somehow they never make it to the tree..
I have a bacon slice ornament I love putting on the tree.
And I bought a Golden State Warriors Santa ornament I put up.
