I leave my candles in the window up for quite a while. It is my favorite holiday decoration.

Already done! Had the time on the 26th! We do leave a light string up on the back veranda that has various colors we can change with a remote. Festive for the whole year when we want to be!

Although I don't do much, I can't wait to "undecorate" on December 26th...

I put my minimal decorations away the afternoon of the 24th. Yes, the 24th. The day before Christmas.


I was going to be at my sisters house Christmas Day and decided that when I came home from there I wanted to walk into my house in normal mode. I had had enough of Christmas. Had a good Christmas Day but I was done. 

I took ours down the 24th to!  We had our Christmas the23rd and like you I was done.

Usually up until Epiphany.
I had a bit of a meltdown this year and took most everything down early but there’s still the tree in the living room. It’s flocked with no ornaments.

I start putting things away Jan. 2, but our nativity stays up through the Feast of the Epiphany.

@wilma Same here!

That's what I do, too!  Of course around here that means putting Christmas decorations away and putting out Mardi Gras decorations.

My decor is mainly winter themed, so it stays up until the end of February.

The tree...sometime the first week of January.

Nativity...after Jan. 6th.

I don't put up holiday/winter decor until around the second week of December, so I'm still enjoying it, especially the tree.

Re: Undecorate?

I just realized that I still have felt Valentine's Day hearts from last year hanging from one of the door knobs inside Smiley LOLHeart.  I think I'll keep them there at this point!

I don't decorate anymore so it was easy.
