    Is anyone else taking down their holiday decorations yet. I started today, I only have the tree in our family room left and I will wait until the weekend.

    I didn't put up much because I didn't want to think about putting it away. Have the tree and just a few Santas. I used to fill our family room with my Santa collection but somehow it doesn' do anything for me anymore. Leaving town for Texas day after tomorrow for 3 months. That probably had something to do with it:)

    Nope, I never take them down before the New Year. Probably will do the week after New Years.

    I still haven't seen my grandbabies. We were supposed to have them today, BUT we got snowed in and no one was going out in this weather...so, hopefully, we see them tomorrow. They then go to Maine to see their "Mimi in Maine" for school vacation. THEN I can take down the tree LOL

    I generally wait til after the new year but the tree in the livingroom had to go. It was sitting where little man's toys go, right now they are in the hallway taking up space. The outside decorations will stay up for now.

    Mine will be put away tonight. Tired of the "season". I live alone and my daughters/Grandkids are far away. It's hard to hear all the "Family Stuff and see all Happly Ever Holiday Movies" when your alone. I need it to be February. LOL

    I've gathered things in to a " pile" to put into the boxes. Everything is off the tree and stored, but the tree is still up ( has fiberoptic lighting...) I think it is pretty on it's on. but everything will be packed and stored sometimes this week... I was too busy sewing to getanything else done! smile

    New Year's weekend for me. I am tired of looking at it, but too lazy to do it this week.

    Mine will be up until at least January 5 or 6....or maybe longer. I love the way the tree looks and like to hold on to Christmas for as long as I can.... until everybody starts thinking I'm loony.

    Why go through the trouble of decorating everything so pretty to take it down so fast? I leave everything around until the 6th of January, the feat of the Magi or Epiphany day. When I was a kid that was the biggest day of the Christmas season and it was celebrated big. It sill is in Puerto Rico. My kids look forward to it. After that, everything can come down.
