Does Santa wrap presents or set them under the tree?

When do you put your decorations up?
Typically we put them up (tree at least) on the evening on Thanksgiving. This year, we finally got the tree up a couple days ago and there is currently ONE ornament on it. I'd say we have about half of our other stuff up so far. I'm not sure why we are struggling this year. Probably out of fear-Connor wasn't walking/destroying last year.
