when to take down Christmas decor

  1. We do the full 12 days of Christmas. We believe in celebrating the entire season. Merry Christmas to you and your family and all the best in ths New Year

  2. I’m embarrassed to say this.. BUT my tree is still up! I can’t bring myself to take it down, it makes me sooo sad! I love the holidays & there’s nothing like a lit Christmas tree in the living room in the evenings.

  3. I usually take my Christmas decorations down on the sixth of January as that is the “official” end of the Christmas season and in memory of my grandfather’s birthday on that date. Now, I don’t know if those two things are really related, but for me they seem to go together. My grandfather died when I was eighteen but he and my grandmother had been very important in my life and my memories of them are always fond. I often wish he had known me as an adult, what conversations we would have had and what he would have thought of the choices I’ve made in my life. Anyway, I like to mark his birthday in some way and I guess ending Christmas by taking down the decorations is just a handy way to remember it.

    I am glad the new year is here. I am looking forward to the surprises and gifts it will bring. I want to be aware of opportunities that might come to me and not forget to live in the moment and cultivate fun and joy in my life. So, Happy New Year to all of us! May we enjoy good health, happiness and prosperity!

    1. Oops, I forgot to mention that I leave my Christmas Decorations up through the middle of January, but this year they may be up longer as I am very ill.

  4. I always take our decorations down between Christmas and New Years. I like to start the year without the clutter.

  5. We usually tackle this process on Jan 2nd. We decorate the outside of the house as much as we do the inside. We also live in a Home Owners’ Association that require the outside to be back to normal on the 3rd. So the 2nd usually works well for us. With the actually holiday being on the 2nd this year, we are doing it all in one day…today!

  6. I’m ready to take down Christmas decorations on the 26th, if we’re home. It’s due to nothing more than the holiday is over and I want my house back! lol. Hubby and the teen, though, want the decorations up till New Years so here I am many days later, taking down decorations…sigh…

  7. I took it all down last week since I knew I would not have time once school started back. I usually leave it up until after the first of the year, I just got an itch to redo my living room. 🙂

  8. I usually take it down right after the 1st of the year. This year we took it down on New Year’s Day. The first year I had my oldest, I took it all down the day after Christmas, because she wasn’t sleeping at all and I was just so done in all honesty. But that is not like me, because I absolutely love Christmas and am usually sad to see it all go ever since I was a young girl. This is the first day that my girls returned to school and my husband went back to work for the New Year and I have to admit I am a bit down right now returning slowly to reality. Hugs and here is to a wonderful 2017 for all of us now!! xoxo <3
