When do you take down your decorations? Do you take down outdoor lights?
I put my tree up a few days before Christmas and usually take them down about a week into the new year. We haven't bothered with outdoor decorations in a few years.

I usually wait until after the Epiphany but, this year I have a real tree that is starting to look a little pale and needs to come down very soon. I'll unplug the lights outside this week and BF will take them down when he gets around to it.


I refuse to decorate before Dec 1 (or the beginning of advent) but, I am happy to celebrate through the entire Christmas season. Christmas doesn't end Christmas day for me.

I am waiting for the kids I go back to school. Dd cries while he tree comes down so I prefer to do it while she is not home
