    When do you all put Christmas away?

    So the GF and I differ on when you take the tree down and box up all of the decorations.
    I like to enjoy it into mid January, but she wants it all boxed up and put away January 2nd.
    In the DC area as i drive by homes and apartments, i still see lots of trees and lights still up at night.
    How is it done in your family?
    Nah Psyops doesn't work on me.
    The easiest way to tell when an argument has no merit is when the protagonist mixes in some personal insults.

    Tree comes down on the 2nd. Decorations usually stay up until April or so, when the Easter stuff starts to look weird next to it.

    The UK tradition is that the 12 days of Christmas end on night of Jan 6th... which is the 12th night (like Shakespeare play name). Although some Europeans start counting Christmas Eve, so end Jan 5th. The supposed bad luck is if you leave the decorations up after midnight of 6th.

    Just taken mine down today (Sun 5th) because I use a ladder to put them in the loft and don't want the hassle of that tomorrow

    Edit: if only there was some tradition about not putting them up too early, some retailers seem to start Christmas in October!
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    We never put up a single light, or a tree. Two new German Shepherd pups told us that would have been a bad idea.

    My mother always said leave them up until the Feast of the Epiphany. But I like to have them down before I return to work. I get January 2nd off every year so I do it then, when Mr Flexy is back at work.

    We do it a little bit at a time. Just like when we set it up. Took the live tree out yesterday, was a ghastly mess. One year we had a tree that just thrived in our living room, never dropped a needle, drank a quart of water every day. We left it up into early March.

    Wow, so she was right.
    Most here are saying Jan 2nd or a few days later depending on what part of the world that you live in.
    Well we did take it down on the 2nd, but i wasn't happy about it since we spent so much time arranging and perfecting it.

    This is like our other debates, the proper way to load silverware in a dishwasher and how do you put the top sheet on a bed ( up or down).
    Nah Psyops doesn't work on me.

    By the first weekend after New Years. This year it was Dec 27.

    I prefer to only have a nicely decorated tree as the decoration, which keeps it pretty straightforward, but the wife has expanded on that, so we always forget some decorations around the house and keep finding them throughout January.

    Another useless info alert. Dr. Phil owns a home who's design was inspired by Tim Burton. I believe his son stays there.

    Pretty much this.

    But didn't put anything up this year since I was having back surgery December 7th.
