Do you still have your holiday decorations up?

And what's the longest you ever left them up?
Mine were down on the 2nd this year. We have a toddler and a puppy. :P
One year I had my Christmas tree up until Feb!

  • I took all mine down on the 26th. It's depressing to look at the tree with no presents under it. I heard if you leave it up past the 1st, any bad luck you had in the old year will follow you into the new year. Sure it's something someone made up so they didn't have to look at a nekkid tree lol.

  • no. it annoys me to have them up after xmas. I took them down on xmas night once! This year though I was busy & i didnt do it till this past weekend.

  • Mine came down on the 2nd. But it was pretty funny because I took EVERYTHING down and then sat down. I was watching tv and realized I left all the decorations on my fireplace mantel. Talk about a space case to do that hahaha.

  • No. We took them down yesterday after opening the 3 Kings gifts.

  • Um, yes. Perhaps I should answer Anon so no one will know! :D My DS is obsessed with the decor this year and is having trouble letting go. And I'm also a huge procrastinator! :D The longest we've left them up (icicle lights on the house) was until the next year! We never put them up after that! I hope to get things packed up this weekend!

  • My freaking Christmas tree is lit right now.

    People must think I'm a nut. I don't have any decorations outside of our home. I'm still in the spirit of being jolly...I like the decorations I don't want to take them down yet, maybe one more week..ok for real maybe two.
