It's called 'boxing day' for a reason. You box with the Christmas tree until it collapses. Then you drag it outside and leave it there for a few months.

Ours went down a couple days later. I teased my kids that they needed to take ornaments off the tree after opening gifts.

I think you're safe until Little Christmas, then after that - you need to think of a good excuse!

It is bad luck to take it down before the day after New Year's. Besides, they are so much trouble to put up, why not enjoy them longer?

Mine is still up, but I will take it down next week as the needles are falling off. I also have a football superstition, if it's still up when your team is in the playoffs, you can't take it down or they'll lose. So I have to take it down before next week when they play. If it's still up I have to leave it up as long as they stay alive!

My Mom's fake tree used to sometimes stay up until March. I have seen many people NEVER take their outdoor lights down all year!

I deflated my inflatable Christmas tree on January 1st. My other tree is about a foot high and it's in the pile ready to go back into the storage bins in the garage with the rest of the decorations.

We used to keep our tree up until New Years or later, because I loved having the tree for my 12/30 birthday. My aunt wins the award because she sometimes has been known to procrastinate and keeo her fake tree up till July! She takes forever to decorate it and it is usually so gorgeous. The holidays exhaust her and she hardly uses her formal living room so the tree just stays there till she feels like dismantling it!
