Ours are up until the Feast of the Epiphany, the recognized end of the Christmas season of the Catholic Church. Although because of an impending move we took ours down just a day after Christmas one year, that was a wierd feeling.

Outdoor decorations come down the first weekend in January that doesn't have rain or snow.
The indoor decorations come down the same time, only weather isn't an issue there. However, every year there is something I forgot to put away that is decorating the inside of my china cabinet or some other forgotten corner.

Our decorations go up once Advent arrives and come down New Year's Day or the day after.

It depends on what is going on socially for us. If we don't have anyone coming over for Christmas festivities after Christmas is over, we will take them down right after Christmas. If, due to schedule conflicts, we have some ongoing Christmas festivities...then they well stay up longer. Also...if we're feeling especially sad that Christmas is over...we might leave them up longer...or intentionally leave one or two things displayed all year. (Currently we have three Christmas plates displayed)
