That's us too. When people say they want things back to normal, I think that 'normal' is rather bland, so I like leaving the decorations out until mid January. We do pull the plug on the outside decorations around January 5th.

Us too, we love looking at it. We will take our decorations down the weekend after new years day.

Tree and other decorations go away on Jan. 6th. Sad when they all go away and everything looks so bare.

The tree, the lights, the decorations, the Christmas cards all stay up until Jan. 6th because that is when the Christmas season ends. Somestimes I keep everything up a bit longer. It's hard to let Christmas go.....

We enjoy ours well into January. I was very ill last January and left it up for quite a while, because it was so pretty during the dreary winter.

I do this too, esp since mine have clear lights!

Re: How many days after Christmas do you plug in your artificial tree?

For Solstice/Christmas I usually get a rosemary bush which I decorate with pentagrams and fairies, cut out from cards. Not this year though since I went away for Christmas, but normally I leave it up for about a week and a half, then put it outside.

The last day that we usually light the tree is New Year's Day.
