Last year I was itching to take down my tree.
it came down yesterday, i needed the space. I am usually BAD in years past I would put it on the enclosed porch and it would be up close to valentines day, but this year we needed the room. I did get some resistance, my 3 year old stopped just short of clinging to the tree putting his life on the line to keep it up but then the 8 year old helped rationlize if the tree comes down we can put the train set there and have more room to play. At which he responded OK mommy you can take it down and I can help...earliest I have gotten it
I took all of our decorations down except the wreath on the door and the tree.
I don't know. I love our tree. We always had a real tree until last year, when we got an artificial one, so our dd at college could help us put it up Thanksgiving break. I almost cried at buying an artificial one, but now I LOVE it. It is no mess, and it looks so real and beautiful. We have had it up since Thanksgiving weekend and I'm just in no mood to take it down. But... probably should soon. :(
We took ours down yesterday as well as the rest of the decorations except the wreath.
It always comes down after the 12th day of Christmas, aka Epiphany.
