Just wondering as I see the lights are still up here, when do you take yours down?

Do you have a date, or just wait until it's warm?

 

P.S. My are down, as I never got them up :D

I light Christmas lights Thanksgiving night or the next night.  All the way to New Years Day.  Tree is fake, goes up after Thanksgiving and back in the box after New Year's Day.  The lights get taken down first chance when the weather cooperates.  Usually in March.

You might be a Red-Neck if your Christmas lights are also your 4th of July decorations!

Take the Christmas lights down??? I don't follow you.
Makes no sense, you would have to put them up again next year.

:ditto:  I may have to take them down this year.  1) The house needs paint.  2) Some of them went out after I don't know how many years on the house.

 

And they do look nice on 4th of July!
