    When do you take down your Christmas tree?

    How long do you leave it up? Before New Years? After?

    The longest I waited was until end of January when I was really busy with work. I think I ended up taking it down on the 21st that year.

    After New Year's Day. I put it up early and take it down late, just trying to extend "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year".

    Re: When do you take down your Christmas tree?

    Considering it's ISU themed, I only take it down when my wife starts getting ******. If I had my way, it'd be up through the end of the basketball season and up again for the start of the football season.

    Re: When do you take down your Christmas tree?

    when it starts talkin smack like its tougher than me, I sweep the trunk, take it down, and put it in a submission hold until it taps out. This usually happens right after new years.
