It is the last weekend in January and I still have my Christmas decorations up.  It is not because I am lazy (or tacky), it is just that I really like the glow of Christmas Tree lights.  Plus the cat has a pretty cool hideout under the tree.



I'm taking everything down today, but thought I'd ask what your tradition is.  Do you decorate for the holidays? How long before you take everything down? Are you judging me for keeping mine up for all of January? When I was growing up, there were some decorations that stayed up for years, so an extra month is an improvement on what I was taught. We are a funny bunch!

  1. I took our lights down late as well. We had this one spring morning/afternoon and it felt so much like spring, that I had to clear everything away.

    That being said, Halloween starts months early around here.

    In our own time, that is the best way.

  2. We put the decorations up the day after Beege's birthday - Dec. 7th (because I think she should have a day that's only hers), and we generally take them down the weekend after school starts, just because we have to shift our entire living room around to accommodate them. If we didn't, I'd leave them up most of January - I love the lights too. :)
