Still up? Taken down? Are they ever taken down?

Dream: They go up a week before Christmas, and come down on January 1st-2nd.
Reality: My step-dad refuses to take down the tree until January 31st, and the decorations probably won't come down for a little while after that. He milks it for every last ounce of Christmas Spirit. But at least we don't have anything out front...I don't think.

Traditionally, ours goes up Thanksgiving Weekend, and gets it's last lighting New Years Eve into New Year's day. The lights are either taken down that following week, or following weekend. We have had some roof lights up until the following year (not powered on) due to time constraints of pulling out the ladder and taking them down (In other words, we were too lazy to climb up and pull them down). Downside is that anything that's plastic gets brittle, colored lights fade, and wires get stiff and crackle (drying out).

I think that this weekend (12 days after Christmas) are pretty much acceptable to have your stuff up but I find it awkward to have things up past New Year's Day.

Yupp. I still have mine up. The outdoor ones are in the process of coming down, i'll likely finish that tonight. But the inside ones are completely up and I have no intention of taking them down for a week or two?

Why? Well, taking them down right after christmas would mean that they are christmas decorations. I try as hard as I can to take the christ out of christmas, as much as he was supplanted into previously held traditions. So my decorations are for winter. Since it is still winter... I keep em up. Plus, they make the house pretty :)

Ha ha, like your style - but winter to me is December, January and February. Three months is quite a long time!

So taking down all decorations yesterday was a failure. There are a bunch of ornaments on the tree whose boxes we cannot find. So the tree is up for another day.

I put up lights around the week before Thanksgiving (but couldn't power them until the week after Thanksgiving). They came down New Years Eve, it was warm that day and was the last day it would be warm since. Next year, lights go up first warm days before Thanksgiving, and get lit the week of Thanksgiving. I got some more lights this year again.

Tree was gone on December 26th ... rest of the decorations and outside lights came down on Jan 2nd.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Sad to say, for the second year in a row, the tree is still up, well into January. Last year, I didn't have time to take it down before our SoCal/Robb's Birthday Cruise trip. This year, I haven't had time to take it down, in between our two week trip to MA, and WDW Marathon Weekend. Had to work, last night. Recovering, this afternoon. I'll tackle it tomorrow. :?r
