    The way I see it.. some put it up at Thanksgiving, which is 4 weeks before Christmas, so leaving it up 4 weeks after is acceptable :thumbup:

    I took mine down today! Should have done it on New Years Day, I usually do, but I bought new fabric right before Christmas, and well you know the rest of the story!

    Mine is still up, but I had to wait till someone went into the attic for the boxes...after 2 years ago when I fell...I have been banned from my attic. I really don't mind, but it is frustrating...had to wait till 12/16 before I was able to threaten someone before the tree went up.

    Boxes are in the living room waiting for me to put it all away.

    I took mine down New Years Day. My house is crowded on a normal basis so I needed it down.

    Today is Epiphany and Sunday is the Feast of the Baptism of Jesus, the last Sunday of Christmas. That means the tree stays up a little longer.

    Mine is still up. It went up very late, because my Mom was in the hospital (unexpectedly) and, well, life was just too hectic to put it up any sooner. Hers is still up, too. And we will celebrate Christmas there when she gets home from rehab... whenever that will be.

    Both trees are artificial, anyway.

    Mine is up- just last night the 3 kings were here with toys for my son. I guess I'll take it down next weekend.

    Mines still up. I LOVE Christmas, not in a rush to take it down.

    Mine is now decorated with cut-out valentines! Need I say more? And the heart-shaped cookie cutters are ready too!

    My DH HATES to take the tree down (also hates to put it up) and procrastinates. I've been laid up with an ankle injury and can't do it myself. Also, our son got engaged over the holidays and the wedding will take place this summer. So I have to pack up his ornaments separately and it's a bit bittersweet to realize they won't be on our tree again, so I've not pushed to get it done. But it all comes down this weekend no matter what!

    My husband and I take down the Christmas tree and put away decorations new years day. Lights come off the house the same day. Nice way to start the new year fresh and clean.

    Ours stays up until mid-March. Family tradition. We like the colored lights during dreary winter months -- cheers us up.

    All the decorations and lights are off, and so is the top part, but haven't gotten around to getting the rest down. Arthritis is really bad right now, so I can do only so much a day. Since I work full time with some heavy lifting involved, I try to conserve energy. Hopefully will get rest down tomorrow.
