Tonight we are finally taking down our tree. That's right it's January 5. And we haven't taken it down yet. What about you? How long was yours up? Is it still?

Ah.. we still have our standing. We haven't really had a chance to sit and watch it much this Christmas season as it is downstairs and my wife isn't supposed to take stairs much until she heals a little more.

We took ours down Dec 30 th my husband said it was time to go up so we could get our house back in order since we move stuff so that the tree can be in front of the big window. I don't know why he wants it in the window since we live up a holler and up on a hill..he's a nut about that. but I had to clean all day that day..I only left up one thing and that was my christmas stocking so far he hasn't said anyhting about it. I will be taking it down tomorrow..I must have been a bad girl since santa didn't leave me anything not even coal..lol

We took our tree down on christmas Day this year. We celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve this time. It just did not seem like Christmas this year for some reason and we didn't get any snow either.

The outside lights got taken down a few days ago, but the tree is still up. I has been unplugged for a few days though. I am just being lazy about it. I will probably take it down sometime this week.

My fiance and I undecorated his parents tree on Thursday. His parents took it down the next night, I believe. The decorations were taken down on Thursday as well. So Ours wasn't up too long. I'd say around Thanksgiving, after it though, until the first of the year.

We took it down yesterday. I hate that time of year when we take down our christmas decorations since that means the hollidays is oficially over. But I do wish we left our christmas lights up since it does make our house look very nice.

Well i'm not a fan to christmas trees and the flashy lights my girlfriend is the one that love the whole christmas ideas. She went ahead and put them up she took them down two days after the new year. My one year old son enjoyed it the most he cried when she took it down but this christmas i'll be the one to put it up for him.

Mine came down Dec 27th. With the little ones playing with it all the time, I just wanted it put away so I could stop chasing ornaments around the house.

Doesn't seem five minutes ago that we were putting it up ready for Christmas, it goes so quickly! Christmas decorations have to be down by the twelfth night which is tomorrow I believe 6th January, but we took ours down today, it all looks so bare now that it's down and kind of sad too, but life goes on and there's always next Christmas!

I would have liked to have had mine taken down last week. But since my granddaughter wants to do it and she had to work all last week she will be taking it down tomorrow. she likes to organize the trimming in her own way when they are put away. If it were up to me I would have taken it down but it's not worth the argument that it would cause.

We did not put up much decorations this year, just enough to acknowledge the holidays. Actually, my husband did not put the decorations up until Christmas eve. We usually do it about a week after Thanksgiving. Today, my husband was not at work, so he did take the tree and stockings down. We haven't removed the cards yet, but the tree is down.
