    So when do you guys take your trees down? Mine is still up and I still leave the lights on. I usually take it down during the first weekend of January. It's such a depressing thing to do so I tend to keep putting it off ... and wait impatiently for the excitement to mount again next year.

    Ah ... what a cycle life is! I hope 2009 brings love, health, strength and peace to everyone here!
    I leave mine up until the day after New Years. My husband thinks that's even to long, but not me!

    Mine used to be like that too; years ago (we've been married 29 years). On the other hand, I do all the decorating on my own and I take it all down too. If he said anything, then he'd be helping!



    (p.s. He knows my new Christmas stash is accumulating in the dining room. He won't even go in there.)

    She must be a light eater! Every Christmas dinner I remember everybody is dog tired and to full to move. Where does she even get the energy?

    yes, I suppose she is. Also, she is just itching to get the Christmas stuff all put away because she says she just wants her house back. And the thing is, her decorations are SO lovely. I just don't get it at all. My family is like yours, we are all stuffed and sleepy after dinner.

    I usually leave mine up till the first weekend after New Years, sometimes later. I like having it all up, but is a big hassle packing everything away. :(

    I've known people who take the trees down between Xmas and New Years, and once in a while I've been known to leave my tree up well into February (gasp!) hahaha.

    Usually take ours down near the middle of January.

    My wife always wants to take it down sooner, but I always win that battle!
