    Well, one of my Christmas trees is covered in snowmen, so I usually leave it up through the end of January...my other tree is all Santa, and to be honest, I didn't take it down at all last year! It was in the back den and we don't spend a whole lot of time back there, so out of sight, out of mind, I guess...I will probably take it down this year, though...

    All of our outside decorations are down, but none of our indoor...I guess that will be a project for this weekend!

    I am going to start to take some of the indoor decorations starting today. I should have everything down by the end of January. The big tree takes about 16 hours to be taken down.

    We have everything packed away, but I am still finding the odd item here and there that we missed the first time. I just came across a bag of spare bulbs in a drawer.

    Took down the outside decs and most of the collections (Santas, Snowmen, Nutcrackers and misc.) yesterday. Today the two trees came down and tomorrow it will be the village and the stuffed animals. Then - all the boxes need to find a home in the basement (hubby's job)and the house will need a complete cleaning!

    I pull the plug on the 6th of January but that is not the norm in the USA. I have seen trees on the lawn for trash pick-up as early as the 26th but, nearly everyone here calls it quits on the 1st but I am not so eager to push Christmas aside so I hold out to the last.

    I still have to get everything back into storage, but I will leave up my bathroom shower curtain and rugs for a few more weeks!

    For the first time in the five years we've been together, my wife and I had everything down before Jan. 1. Usually we wait until the first week of January at the earliest.

    It's funny. We still have one storage bin out because we are using it for all the random stuff we come across as time goes on. It's already about 1/2 full!
