    When do you take down you Christmas tree?

    We were discussing the issue today at work and could not come to a consensus on what is the proper time to remove your tree. Thoughts?

    Re: When do you take down you Christmas tree?

    My wife took down all the Christmas decorations the day after Christmas. She does a great job of decorating for Christmas but when it's over she is all about taking it down. I just took the outside lights and decorations down today.

    Not until after the Epiphany, the 12th day after Christmas.

    My wife takes down everything as soon as possible. I think ours might have been gone late on Christmas day.

    Re: When do you take down you Christmas tree?

    If I remember right from Sunday school...the Christian thing to do is
    wait until near the end of Epiphany. Which is 12 days after Christmas.

    We usually take ours down shortly after the New Year.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Re: When do you take down you Christmas tree?

    The bigger and more important question is--- When will she stop playing Christmas music?

    Re: When do you take down you Christmas tree?

    Yesterday. We used to let it stay up through NY but with the kids and all their clutter around we wanted it down to make the place a little more tidy. Plus the kids want the new bounce house up to try out.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.
