    When do you take them down

    Most folks around here pull the plug on New Years Day.
    I leave mine burning until Epiphany want to make it last as long as possible.

Heaven, and the Christmas Time be praised for this! I say it on my knees, old Jacob, on my knees!' (Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol)

    I took down the outside lights today - early for me - but we are expecting 6 to 12 inches of snow starting at 6 am tomorrow. If they didn't come down today then they would be buried!

    This year it was Jan 5 because I was off that day. I really hated to take it down. I was very sick this year, and the tree didn't go up until 3 days before Christmas. I barely got a chance to enjoy it.

    Most of my outside stuff is already partly buried and frozen in for the next several weeks. I will get some of it down here and there, but a lot stays until a thaw. Our indoor stuff got put away last weekend. :(
    I love Outdoor Christmas Lights!!
