    We put them up on the 1st of December..

    It's not that I am sick of them.. its just Christmas has passed its over, Its for the Kids more than anything putting them up on the first gets everyone excited and in the festive mood, I dont believe in religion so its just a celebration of friends and family and deccys are part of the fun.

    but by time the 1st of January comes its a new year and Christmas is over, so its time to put them away.

    We put ours up Xmas eve, it's feels more special then, a shorter but richer time! 12 days thats all, it's about right.

    I'm on about decorations, not your pants!

    down 27th .you make your own luck

    I can't wait to get mine up again.

    Heres a tip i found, if you use cable ties to put up decs specifically outside lights, then when you take them down its a simple pair of wirecutters will make it a 5 minute job.

    Oh that is just cruel
    I know someone who used to leave them up until March
    I am certain their bad luck was nothing to do with the decorations......

    first weekend after Xmas....i work Monday-Friday so can't be arsed after work....plus it's nice to get the house back to normal ....now to face finding somewhere to put all the kids toys

    For a nation that thinks the whole basis that leads to Christmas is founded on a fairy tale, it gets very superstitious over when to put up/take down decorations!

    Mine went up 2nd December and they came down 2nd January.

    You know I was thinking this only yesterday.. As I arrived home 2 magpies were sat on my fence which gave me a good feeling, go job it wasnt one eh!

    I like to pride myself as sceptic, a man of science and facts, I do not believe in an afterlife, religion or God..

    So why the hell (irony?) do I make sure I open my brolly outside, never walk under a ladder and God (yes again) help someone put new shoes on a table in our house...

    I know full well its irrational but I cant help it..

    What Decorations?....very minimal here.

    I'll take em down today if i can be arsed

    I do make my own luck, it's why I'm in business, I was wanting to stick with the tradition more than anything, grumpy git

    Keep em up all year. Then wipe away the thick layer of dust on 1st of December so people notice the decorations again!
