take it down? are you serious?

You realize if you take it down, you will just have to put it back up in 359 days...

We love having a live tree in the house, so I either keep it up until the tree has become too dry / dead to be safe OR the last day for municipal pickup.

You can't take the tree down yet! The Christmas season goes through the Epiphany, which this year is celebrated January 8th. More gifts arrive on January 6th, of course!

If it's a live tree, take it down as soon as possible, before it becomes a fire hazard.

I take it down after January 6th, feast of the magi

Right now while everything is closed and there's nothing better to do.

I would say a week or so after new years. Although, I may not be the best person to ask. One time I left it up until Valentine's Day. And i'm not even sure why. Laziness probably..

Ummm, are we talking live trees here? Ours was dead...and I mean dead the day after Christmas (and probably before but didn't notice until the packages were covered with needles) so making it to Three Kings was a no go. Ours went out Monday. New house for the birds.

We took ours down today. But last year at my apartment I didn't take it down until March! Never doing that again.

Growing up, my Mom would take it down until a little bit into January. We love the Frasier Fur needle in the living room :)

Took it down yesterday. Meant to do it sooner but it kept getting put off.

Since I have to pack away all the other decorations too, I will wait for the best weather day of this week. No need to take down and lug around decorations outside when it is cold, windy, and rainy.

I would normally take it down this weekend, but it's rainy and cold outside, so I'll wait till the middle of the week. Best rule is to have it down by the middle of January though. If it's live, as soon as possible. fire hazard and all that.

Took it down today along with the outside decorations while the weather was good, last year had to do it in 2 ft of snow, never again!

December 27th. Don't forget to take down the lights too.

As long as you aren't leaving Christmas lights until after January 10th... There should be a law about how long to leave lights up.

5 minutes after the kids fell asleep on Christmas night.

Christmas is a fun holiday and all, but now that it starts before Halloween in most retail stores, 2 mos a year is a long enough season...

The wife took ours down today. Personally, I'd leave it up longer but she gets crazy about needles and putting away the ornaments.

January 8th is the traditional date to take it down, but last year mine stayed up till march... Too lazy to take it down

I usually take it all down (outdoor lights, tree, the whole shebang) the day before returning to work for the new year....which means sometime later on today. poof Like it never happened.

Took it down today, it was pretty crispy. We just finished cleaning up all the needles. I usually try to leave it up longer, but this year I'm going to be busy later this month, so it was now or never.
