When should you take down your Christmas tree ?

Traditionally, the Christmas tree would be put up and decorated on Christmas Eve, and stay up through the 12th day of Christmas otherwise known as Epiphany.

However, it seems most people put their Christmas trees up after Thanksgiving and usually take them down after New Year's Day.

What do you think? When do you take decorations down? How long should the Christmas tree stay up? What are your Christmas Tree traditions, if any?

  1. When I was a child, our tradition was to put up our Christmas tree on Christmas Eve (Genna eve), Now I leave with my sister, We got a fake pre-lit tree for the first time and we decorated the tree earlier than Christmas Eve and we still keep the family tradition of by leaving the tree up until the Epiphany, January 20. So sad! I love the decorations and all but can’t wait until the stuff goes back into storage.
