When so you take down your Christmas tree?

Normally we put ours up the weekend before Thanksgiving since my husband had worked retail and after Thanksgiving I'd never see him so that was our time to do it together. As far as putting it down we would normally do it New Years but this year I took it down today. We aren't going to be home for Christmas and we've had our decorations up for a month now and I kinda want my home back.

This is so unusual for me as Christmas is my all-time favorite season and I just love everything about it.

Anyone else?

  • Wow, your is down already! I guess with going away, it does make sense. We will take ours down around probably the weekend after new years. Our township comes around and collects the trees to recycle them and they start that the week of Jan. 10th. So we will take it down right before so it isn't just at the curb for forever.

  • We'll be taking it down Saturday afternoon. By the end of Christmas day, I'm sick of looking at it, so we get it all down.

  • I have taken it down on the 26th before. Just depends on my work schedule and how motivated I am.
