We always leave up our tree until Chris’ birthday on January 10th. I’m always a little taken aback when I hear that someone has taken their tree down on Christmas day or the day after. I mean, to each his own but I enjoy the tree and decorations most during the week or two following Christmas. That’s when I finally have a moment to catch my breath and really take in the beauty of the season, especially at night when all the Christmas lights are on. Plus, I find that by leaving it all up until well into January, I’m really ready to do some cleaning and decluttering at that point. Hopefully this year will be no different!
