I read Christmas books/magazines all year. On Fridays, nearly all year, when I'm at the office I listen to Christmas music.

I listen to the music, watch Christmas themed shows and movies. I do have my lights still up on the roofline, they haven't been turned on since January 12. I need to get those down, but they will be going up in again in about 5 months.

We had a REALLY snowy and icy winter in St. Louis this past year, so ours never seemed to make their way down either. We usually use epiphany as our guideline to take them down, but we just continually had snow on the roof. My DH and I keep talking about how they need to come down, but we just don't seem to make it happen. At what point do you just say, aw, shove it?

We'll have to make a decision soon - we're hosting a bbq around the 4th of July. I'm thinking we should have them down before then, but honestly none of my friends or family would be surprised if I not only had them up - but turned on too!!! LOL

My neighbors have had their icicle lights up since we moved in 2.5 years ago. They still have their wreath up from last Christmas.

I'm embarrassed to say that our live (or should I say dead ) wreath didn't come down until mid-April this year! I just really don't do cold or snow so I kept thinking about taking it down - but instead would just make the mandatory b-line for the car or front door. There weren't going to be any pit stops along the way LOL!

I do a combination of the choices, from decorating a tree and singing carols, to watching movies. Finally took my tree down a few weeks ago because it needed to be dusted - can't wait to put it back up

I watch Christmas movies and listen to Christmas music all the time. I also love to watch Christmas in July and plan on having a mini Christmas meal this year. I would also definitely say I am more active here during the off season. Once thanksgiving gets here I am usually busy baking and going to different Christmas events.
