When do you like to take your Christmas tree down? Do you take all your decorations down at the same time? I like to wait untill after new years.

Nearly every year the tree traditionally comes down on 6th January which is twelfth night, we do it all together it's much easier that way, than taking the tree down one day and decorations and cards down another day. Although to be honest when New Year's Day has come and gone I find seeing the tree still up rather depressing, and they start to wilt don't they, it's not the same once Christmas has come and gone. Seeing the tree still up and Christmas has gone makes it even more sad, after all Christmas is only really two days isn't it? All the preparation and it's such an anticlimax.

The holiday isn't over until after New Years Eve so I definitely keep it up until after! Generally I have it up a full month or more...I love Christmas and all of the beautiful decorations! ~Heavens~

Ever since I was child the tree has always been taken down on January 6th (Three Kings Day) as January 5th is the twelfth day of Christmas and the last day of the Christmas celebration. I have kept that tradition alive for many years.
