Tree still up and decorated?

I was just wondering if I'm the only one who hasn't taken the tree or in my case trees? I just love the way the living room tree makes the room so cozy with the white lights and I have no desire to take it down. Tree in the basement is still up also but I did take my wall trees down. Bedroom tree is still up too.

January is such a long, dreary cold month and leaving the decorated tree up makes sense to me.

I took my trees down on Tuesday (Jan. 10) I usually leave one tree up until the end of the month but I got into such a roll, and the tree I usually leave up was beaten up by the cats. I am glad you still have yours up, last year I drove by a house every night that had their tree up until the first day of spring.

Some of our decorations like the Santa collections have been put away but all four trees (living room, dining room, upstairs landing, and bedroom) are still up, decorated and lit every evening.
I agree. January is a dark month and can use some extra light.

I still have my tabletop tree up in my bedroom. There are a few more decorations out as well but my big tree is packed away already.

I have the tree still up and decorated, house still fully ablaze with thousands of lights, the inside decorations are still out and My Merry Christmas radio playing as I'm typing...

Since I'm the only one in my community (not neighborhood, I must say) that still has their decorations up, lights lit and I'm still HO-HO-HOing along; I'm Loving it.....

Hi Joyful, good to hear from you! Hope you had a nice Christmas!

We just took our tree down a few days ago. I think that was the longest we ever let it up. DH was actually okay with leaving it up, too. I think with having kids now, he is getting more and more in the holiday spirit every year. I hope this continues!

I take mine down on the Epiphany- generally around the 6th of January. I try to set it up and keep it up within the liturgical Christmas season of my faith so that I can keep the true meaning in my heart. That said, I see absolutely no reason for you to keep those trees up as long as you like. The light is so lovely during these dark months of remaining winter. Enjoy!
