Chido has shown a merry disposition
santahat When do you take down the tree?

I'm looking at mine (Monday night, Jan. 5), and it looks great!

I usually try to take mine down on Jan. 7, the day after the Epiphany. But I might not have time until this coming weekend.

In any case, there isn't much longer to enjoy it.

Also, are any of you amused at how long some of your neighbors keep their decorations up? I sometimes notice decorations well into February.

We undressed our tree last night.
It's still up and naked in the stand... I'll take it down on Wednesday.

I'll take ours down either the 7th or 8th depending on how much time I have. I hate to see it go though.

We took ours down on the 3rd. I really hate seeing it go, but it just doesn't feel right having it up after a certain point. I have to remind myself that it wouldn't be as special if I never took it down!
