Default When do you..........

So how long do you leave your decorations up?

I have been known to actually take mine down Christmas night... I mean, everyone was scattered into their rooms, getting ready for bed, etc... It was 9 PM and I thought.. hey! Might as well get a jump on it! I will never live that one down, so now I wait until the 27th or so....(maybe!).

While I love the decorations and all, by this time, I'm ready to get things back to "normal." Am I odd? When do you take your decorations down?

Usually on New Year Day, but never before. I love our trees and the festive fireplaces.I have 3 in the living room and the big one is downstairs in the family room.
One time I left everything up until January 15th.That might have been a little much but our son graduated from basic training in San Antonio,Tx.(AF) that year and couldn't get home until then.

Faye- how super to leave it up for your son's return.
Usually for us in the first week of January, but this year we got a slow start putting things up in the first place. The Dickens village often stays up until the end of Feb, as it is a pain to set up.

Oh, yes, Faye.. I can totally understand your reasons there!
And, yes, Michi... I would leave that village up for a while too.
One year, when we were doing a complete interior house remodel, we didn't put up a big tree at all... just a small artificial 3 foot one. I carried it upstairs to a spare room and put it there, decorations and all, and left it until the following year. LOL.. it was a LONG remodel process!

The Christmas time in Spain is much longer, reaches the January 6th which is when the Three Kings are delivering their gifts. And usually start decorating in early December, between 6th and 8th is a national holiday here, and collect all the Christmas decorations from 7 to 8 January. So we still have 10 days enjoying the lights, Christmas trees and gift packaging. We celebrate a lot of events with great feasts: Christmas Eve dinner on December 24, Christmas lunch on December 25, The Year's Eve dinner with the 12 grapes, lunch on New Year's Day January 1 and lunch on January 6 celebrating the arrival of the Three Kings. My stomach can not handle so much food and celebration! It is also the time when you meet at lunch or dinner with friends, colleagues, family do not see very often and celebrations in the children school. Having fun is hard work. lol

I like to leave mine up until the first week of January. Most the time it depends on the Fire Safety of the tree. As long as the needles are hanging on tight I like to leave the Tree Up.

new Year's day for me. My mom always took it down the first day we were back in school. That way, she could do it in peace and quiet without 6 kids underfoot trying to "help".

My tree is still up. I am just enjoying looking at it with all the angle ornaments and pretty lights. It has been many years since we had such a healthy tree.
