How long do you leave your Christmas decorations up?

I just saw that my neighbors threw away their tree already and couldn't believe it. But then, my mom always took ours down the day after Christmas. Personally, I leave mine up through Valentine's Day.

  • Mine came down today. We are babysitting a dog that is not an indoor dog. He got inside today, ran around tearing things up and then peed on the Christmas tree. Luckily it was the trees last year. It is several years old and had seen better days. Thank God tomorrow is trash day!

  • We take our tree down after Jan 2nd. I was always taught it was bad luck to take it down before New Year, or to leave it up past Jan 2nd.

  • I leave them up til the 1st week of January, before garbage day. I'm not superstitious but I like to have them up for New Year's celebration and it was how we did it growing up.

  • I took mine down today! I've had the darned thing up for a month....I didn't see the need in leaving it up.

  • Mine were taken down yesterday too. I get tired of looking at them after Christmas. And I was getting tired of my son trying to pull it down.

  • I'll take them down sometime in January when I feel like it.
    I threw the box away for the artificial tree so I don't know what we'll be putting it in...LOL.
