Are your Christmas decorations still up?

I was just out and I amazed by how many people still have their Christmas decorations up! I even saw some Halloween decorations.

My decoratiosn were down by the middle of January. Are your decorations up? If they are, why?

Mine are down. I actually took my tree down on New Years Eve during the day because I was sick of looking at the state of it! Sleeves and Nismo totally wrecked it, it was funny to begin with but it made the room look awful lol.
I kept my cards and everything else up until the middle of Jan. I find it hard to let go of Christmas

Actually, I just think that nobody with cats would leave them up that long...it's too hard to keep our little angels away from the decorations!

If you had asked this question YESTERDAY, I would have had to own up Why? Sheer inertia. I HATE having Christmas decorations up beyond Epiphany (Jan 6), and usually take them down then or within a day or so. I was just in a weird space this year, and didn't get to it, and didn't get to it, and didn't get to it....

Last night, I stayed home from choir practice, because I have a bit of a cold, knew we weren't doing anything I couldn't afford to miss, so decided not to share my germs (aren't I sweet?). So, Rob was out and I was rattling around doing all kinds of stuff I had been avoiding, like taking the Christmas decorations down and putting them away. I felt soooooooooooo righteous when it was done!

Well, since the only Christmas decorations I had this year were two large poinsettias and a Santa Class, they are still 2/3 up. My poinsettias usually stay until about May, when I decide they are too unattractive to keep. I've never tried to keep any over for the next year. It is just too difficult to do in this climate without a greenhouse.

Ours came down the day after we returned from our Christmas trip to visit family. Actually. . . the cats started helping with that while we were gone. They got a whole lot done that week we were away!

I voted other since I still live in an apartment and I'm not here for Christmas, so I didn't bother decorating it.

I didn't put any decorations up this past Christmas, so I'm in the clear!

Sadly, I don't decorate.
I'd love to, but with chew happy cats and a dog that will ingest anything, I don't feel safe doing so.

Ours came down in phases. I took down the tree and the train a few weeks ago. My wife took down the nativity scene and put away the cards soon after that. I took the lights down from the house last weekend, which was the first weekend since Christmas that it didn't pour down rain.
