Teresa took ours down the day after Christmas. Not due to ba humbug, but Grandson Case likes too much to mess with it, so till he gets older, it'll come down quick.

If you don't put it up, you don't have to worry about it! Seems I read years ago that in the lod days it was customary to burn the "yule log" on New Year's Eve. I think this was in reference to the Christmas tree and starting the new year off fresh.

we took it down this yr on the 2nd, because of moving some stuff in the living room, normally we dont for a week or so after new yrs. I took down most of my new LED side lights because the wind blew them off the garage. left up the ones around the front door and might yet for a while. Seems like the new lights are heavier than the old style one, will have to make differnt mounts next yr.

Ours comes down the week after Christmas and usually before New Years Eve. With a wood stove in the living room they dry out quick.
Prefre they come down before they burn down.......
