    Our indoor stuff will be taken down and packed away this weekend. I will chip away at the outdoor stuff as weather permits. Last night was the last night I will have my display on outside, but it'll sit out there for a few more weeks as I wait for warmer weather to get stakes out of the ground.
    I love Outdoor Christmas Lights!!

Over there it just seems to be about one day. :|
    You couldn't be more wrong. It's absolutely not about one day over here. I have had my lights blazin' since November 22nd.

    Usually take most of it down on January 2nd - tomorrow. I did take a few items down today. May have to wait to get the outside stuff totally down as some things are buried in snow!

    I start putting up my decorations the day after Thanksgiving and start taking them down the day after the epiphany (Jan. 6) Most of my friends wait til after Jan. 1 to take theirs down. I put out my snowman collection during January and February. This keeps the house looking jolly during the dark winter months.

    Mine all comes down between January 2 and January 5. Today is January 17th and when I was out last night, I would say about 10% of those with outside decs are still up and lit!
