My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

We take down our outside decorations right after New Years and leave our inside decorations out until we have the time to get to them. We love Christmas so we put 'em up early, and take 'em down late.

I start putting my decorations up inside after Thanksgiving Day and outside I take advantage of any warm day.

Inside I leave the decorations up the month of January, it's usually a icky month soooooooo long that I figure I have lots of time to take down decorations. Outside I take advantage of any warmer day in January. Living in the north where it's cold and icky the weather predicts what you will do.

Most decorations go up after Thanksgiving dinner....But they all come down 1-2 days after Christmas.(Except for the few that stay up all year long!)

We take ours down on 12th Night.

Ours usually come down Christmas day or the day after. As far as leaving them up all year, I leave out a few things, but I would not want everything up all year. where is the fun in that? You dont have anticipation in October to put them up, no joy when you finally pull out all the boxes, no fun putting them up. For me It would not be Christmas w/o all that.
