With just a month left before Christmas arrives many Brits will be questioning when to put up their decorations.

Some people argue that it's only acceptable to deck the halls after the 1st of December, and others believe the earlier the better.

A survey of 1,000 Brits has revealed when the exact perfect date to don the decs really is, reports The Mirror.

According to the poll of 1,000 Brits, the answer shows that the average Brit will put their tree and decorations up 27 days before the big day.

If we're to go by that science, that means you should be getting the baubles and the lights and everything else out the loft in time for putting everything up on November 28, according to EFR Electricals, which carried out the survey.

This actually works out perfectly with traditional Christmas rules, which state that decorations should be put up at the start of advent, which is four Sundays before Christmas - this year that happens to land on November 28!

Apparently, one of the main factors determining when you put your tree up could be related to your age, with the survey results revealing that those above the age of 35 put their tree up an average of 24 days before Christmas, while those below 35 put theirs up an average of 29 days before Christmas.
