Our Christmas tree is still up and Im loving it. Probably latest weve ever had it up.
I think Ive shared previously how my mama, as good as she is, would snatch our tree down on Christmas night every year. I hated it and told my wife when we got married 20 years ago that it had to stay through New Years. I coaxed her into leaving it through the natty this year.
Id leave it until spring but wife has said its going tomorrow or Monday.
Guy I work with lived in Mobile for awhile. He said they add Mardi Gras beads and keep them through Mardi Gras there. Told me Id love it.

I'm in favor of a 4-foot model with the same lights and ornaments that just gets moved from the back office to the den and back again, but I get overruled.

Got two outside that are still lit and look good at night. Makes it look like there is a lot of folks here at the house. Gonna keep em up for a while as a theft deterrent. Been lots of houses around here getting broken into. It is about hammer time if you catch my drift.

I can't stand a thief!

The twelve days of Christmas starts on Christmas Day. Ending on January the 6th with the feast of Epiphany. This year was the first time we took ours down before the 6th in a long time.

Just can't let it go huh. We ride around a lot and see houses that still have lights hanging on them all year. We broke it down to two seasons. Before and after the 4th of July. If they were still up before the 4th, it was said "they just can't let it go". If it was after, it was said "their just getting an early start".

Ours is still up. The wife won't let me or the grandaughters mess with her ornaments. She says we will screw them up. She's had the flu then turned around and now has bronchitis and strep.

Just leave it up all year then, and say it's in storage.

I leave mine up all year. I just put it in the attic and bring it back down for Christmas. This year I didn't even bring it down. It's just fine with me if I don't ever have to bring it back down.

When I lived in Louisiana it drove me crazy to see lights up through Mardi Gras. I'd hate to know what some of their power bills were.

My wife (the U.K.child-bride immigrant) insists that it is extremely bad luck to leave your tree up past Epiphany. Any good Alabamian knows the reasoning behind this--they need to be in the lake before the crappie spawn.

Still have ours up, but still have some family we haven't been able to exchange gifts with due to sickness.

God Bless,
