    I don’t even decorate anymore. Too old to tired.

    Take them down on Twelfth Night (Jan 6th).

    If you follow old traditions and only put up the tree & decorations on Christmas Eve then they are only up for less than a fortnight and don’t have time to get tired. The trouble with putting up decorations in November is that you are tired of them well before Christmas itself.

    They can stay up all year. Just like my outside Christmas lights do.

    It isn’t worth going to all that work to have it up for 15 days (December 24 to January 8). I usually put my decorations up the day after Thanksgiving and take them down a day or two after New Year. This year I didn’t get around to doing that and just put up a table top tree. It didn’t make any difference to anyone. I decorate for myself, not others.

    When you have a cat like Peekaboo, all your decorating has to be on the ceiling, like at Rose’s.

    Trees and ornaments are just seasonal playthings. Keeping all the decorations packed away because ot the cat’s destructive nature sure does dampen the Christmas spirit, though. Too bad Siamese cats live so long… I really do miss my Christmas tree, lights and collectable decorations.

    I decorate the day after Thanksgiving, and take it all down New Year’s Eve to start the year fresh and clean. Long enough to enjoy, short enough to not be sick of it. Also, now that my daughters are a little older, less effort for me! My husband works 3rd shift, so on New Year’s Eve the girls and I have a “pajama party” and incorporate the undecorating as part of the festivities.

    When we decorated they went up a week or ten days prior to Christmas and came down January 2nd. Don’t even bother with a tree anymore.

    I was told if you leave tree up after New Years Day you’ll have bad luck all year.

    I put the tree up the weekend of Thanksgiving and take it down usually on New Years Day. I have cats and still do a lot of decorating.
    I never heard of that superstition animemom. I never take my tree down before New Years and so far, haven’t had bad luck all year in any year.

    TRADITIONALLY (Christian Tradition) says that Christmas starts Dec. 25, and lasts 12 days, until Epiphany on January 6th.
    I take my decorations the week after January 6th.

    Up here in Wisconsin they often leave the outside decorations up till May, when the weather finally gets a little decent . . .

    I was sorry to miss the Meeting of the Sweaters that I anticipated from yesterday’s comic…
