I started a company selling land mines disguised as prayer mats.

Prophets are going through the roof!

the weekend after christmas.

Brayson87 said...

+1 notthis, It looks awesome, but on the other hand kind of sends the wrong message to house guests ;)

Jane said...

Usually a few days. By New Year's Eve all Xmas stuff is put away and I do a deep cleaning for the new year.

MichiganMama59 said...

I got them up early this year, so I will take them down a week after New Year. I leave them up at least a month,.

Smalls said...

Whatever weekend follows New Years' Day. Definitely by Valentine's Day. Never a day beyond Easter.

Ms.MimiB said...

Usually the 6th. I put it up late

I love how you just assume that the entire reading audience partake in this custom.
Believe it or not .. some of us do not cut down a living evergreen, remove it from its natural environment, then drag it into the house.
Some of us don't buy a plastic tree made in China. We don't see the need to copy Victorian habits from a couple hundreds years ago.
And... if we are interested in "Jesus birthday"(a date no one knows anyway), we also know there were no evergreens in the Middle East. Jesus never would have seen one.

Until after New Year’s.

Unknown seems cranky

No tree, ask me when I take down my flamingos and their sleigh lol

Brayson87 said...

Jeez, I think someone got touched by a christmas tree as a child.

It's nice to have extra lights going around the winter solstice.

hothotheat said...

No tree but I take down all other decorations the first weekend after christmas.

Aquagirl said...

The Epiphany, January 6th.

Three Kings Day

I live in a town that's very Greek. Their Christmas is January 7th so it's customary for everyone to leave their decorations up until that day. I once left the tree up all year. I just picked it up and moved it to a sunroom. lol

Mhdz said...

I take it down on January 2nd. Didn't put one up this year, though.

Ann said...

Mid January sometime. I start nagging DH New Year's Day. Sometime over the next couple of weeks he finally gets the job done.

@ CNN Anchor Candy Crowley - Thank you for all the laughs, please keep them coming!

I had an artificial tree that I kept up year round because it looked nice. I threw it out this week because of allergies.

I am literally sick and tired of going to the emergency room. Now you know why I haven't been here lately. I ask for the CDAN community's prayers for recovery and healing. Thank you.

Unknown said...

Normally I am so late, so the end of January, but I just took my down, this afternoon.

Humor Me said...

January 5th. Christmas taken down begins in on the sixth.....

TommyWantsHisMommy said...

Last night after kids went to bed. Threw it right out the front door. Not even shitting you. I did the same last year. The solstice is over..the days will get longer...all that crap.

MSAB09 said...

27th, or around. Down by the 30th that's for sure

Dannette said...

I leave everything up for the priest to enjoy my yearly epiphany party.

Weekittylass said...

May God bless you and heal you TW. Please let us know how you are doing.

Comes down after Second Christmas (Hobbit tradition), after Orthodox Christmas/ Epiphany around Jan 6th/7th. Unknown seems to not like Chrissy Decorations much but if you're going to Grinch get your facts right, 200yrs ago = Georgian not Victorian and the decorated tree tradition is not Victorian but Pagan Scandinavian/Celtic Solstice tradition. Granted the tree has nothing to do with Jesus who was probably born around March/April.

Cee Kay said...

We usually leave ours up until the first weekend after New Year's. Some years it stays up until the weekend after Ukrainian Christmas. We aren't Ukrainian, but who's to know?

Mango said...

I can’t be bothered to put up a Christmas tree, but growing up my mother always took the tree down after Three Kings Day.

GentleBreeze said...

I take my tree down when the spirit moves.

T.W. - prayers/energy sent.

Elaine Pepe said...

Till Three Kings Day

Sd Auntie said...

Sorry TW. This year has been pretty bad fo4r asthmatics like myself. God Bless

Lexi said...

The dry weather here makes early crispy trees, so I took it out today.

Paul Saint John said...

I keep it up all year round. I'm that lazy. Seriously.

Liz Pop said...

Until just after New Years
