    When do Your Decorations come down?



    Alright, lets be honest, when do you take down your outdoor Christmas decorations?
    The weather has been so mild around here we took down ours the day after New Years.

    So Lets take a little poll.

    This weekend - as a kid my family left them up until Jan. 6 - I think it is supposed to be called little Christmas - I believe it is when the three kings made it to . I am not super religious now but the story sounds good. Not sure if this is accurate

    With it being 50 degrees today, we took them down today. We usually take them down the weekend after
    3 kings day.

    Re: When do Your Decorations come down?

    We don't have any outdoor decorations since we're newly married and whatnot. But, all the inside decorations (including our tree that is dropping needles like it's no ones businesses) are all getting taken down tomorrow. I have a lot of little things around the house so it'll take a while. I hate taking the tree down. That corner always looks so bare without it. Plus, next year we're not going to get a real tree and instead will be using the little fake one instead. We're going to Disney for 8 days in December and a real one would be dead by the time we got home. lol.

    Re: When do Your Decorations come down?

    Today, we were waiting for "Little Christmas" yesterday. I took all the ornaments (except lights and star) off the tree during the week, and some of the indoor decorations too (except our Nativity.

    Re: When do Your Decorations come down?

    I removed all decorations yesterday and just packed last box in the spare storage shed. It always feels a little empty to have it done but I started looking at all my spring and Easter items and knew the next amazing holiday will be here soon.

    Re: When do Your Decorations come down?

    No idea if the same applies in the US but here, the general opinion is that decoratioins should be down by Twelfth Night - it's just that nobody seems to be able to decide whether Twelfth Night falls on the 5th or 6th January.

    Personally, if we're at home for Christmas (which is rare as we tend to go on vacation for the festive season), we take the decs (inside and out) down by New Year's Day.

    We take our inside stuff down on christmas evening after santa has come and all the presents are done! We take it down as a family and talk about how much we loved our family time at all the places we went that year. The outside lights come off the house as soon as it warms up but we have forgotten them before until spring. But this year even the midwest has had very mid weather so they were down before the new year.
