How long do you leave your tree lit?

Our tree stays on during the day if it's gloomy out, and on at night obviously. Some nights it doesn't get unplugged - I've found it makes an excellent nightlight for coming downstairs with in the mornings when its still dark out.

  • Ours stays lit 24/7 - it takes so little electricity these days and it makes for a cheery room when you get up in the morning :)

  • Ours usually gets plugged in around 4:30pm or so when it starts getting dark and we like to just have the tree lights in the living room, plus the light from the tv and computers :P Then I remember to turn it off before I go to bed around 10:30 or so. I never leave it on all night, even though it is an artificial tree and has VERY little chance of catching fire I just learned from an early age not to leave the lights on overnight in case they overheat...

  • I leave mine plugged in. But, I have a fake one so, I'm not worried about a fire.

  • We plug it in when we get up in the morning, and turn it off when I go to bed. When Santa brings the presents on Christmas Eve, he turns them back on - that's how we know he's been here. ;)
