We are at the 7th day before Christmas and it’s around this time that the “little ones” get very excited about the big day. And actually, some of us “big ones” get excited as well. There is last minute shopping, menu planning and putting the finishing touches on the decorations.
How long do you normally wait until you take down all those lovely ornaments? Some usually take them down on New Year’s Day while others may keep it up a couple of days afterwards. Since there is no designated timeframe—what do you think is appropriate or conventional?
Our HOA requires we take down our outdoor decorations no later than a week after Christmas. Though I think this is a little strict. I usually take down our indoor decorations at the same time so I can pack them away together.
Whenever we get around to it...February. March.... if the stores can start selling Easter eggs straight after Christmas...we can leave or decorations up.
When to take them down? I haven't had time to put them up.
All great answers everyone! I was late putting up my tree (dealing with the news of having cancer) but now that I have dealt with that; I have everything up and when I put it back is anyone's guess :-)

Why pear tree isn't leafing out yetI have a Cleveland Select pear tree it is 4 years old. It is May 9 2011 and it is not getting leaves or green. Is it to early or is it dead? We live in ohio and have had a very wet spring.

When do you take your Christmas Decorations down?Some say it is bad luck to take the Christmas tree down after the new year. "You are bringing the old year into the new."Others say January 6th is the day, after the 12 days of Christmas.
