I know it's early but I took down some miniature trees.

I want to get some snowman up for Jan. and needed the room.

That's how you KNOW you have too many ornaments.

I took down my mini trees off the top of my desk today. I hung my Valentine cookie cutter ornament up and set out my two TY Beanie Baby Punxutawney Phils. I do snow, gold pine trees and snowflakes in my living room and dining room. I do my mantel in red and get it ready for Valentine's Day.

I took the tree in my bedroom down today, though I did not get all of the ornaments on it put away.

I don't even start feeling guilty about not taking down my Christmas ornaments until the 1st.

We are having a second Christmas dinner for guests who couldn't make it to our house on Christmas or Christmas Eve. That dinner will be on the 5th. So, nothing will be taken down until the 6th.

Well I helped my mom take down stuff today. Does that count?

I never got too much stuff out this year, so it's staying up a while.

I had to take mom's down the 26th since I live 2 states away. I put up my most recent purchases last night. I think they'll be up through February, unless hubby gets impatient.

I took down my outdoor decorations today. The indoor stuff will stay up until MLK Weekend, as I need the 3 full days to get it all taken down and catalogued. It will go out to the garage storage attic sometime after then (whenever my husband has time to help me get it all up there!)

My HOA strictly enforces the bylaw that says all visible decorations must be removed within 10 days of a holiday. Last year I received a nastygram/fine because my light guy came on January 9 to take down the lights on the roofline. Silly me! I considered the “holiday” to end on January 1st and had been patting myself on the back for getting it done two days before the deadline! WRONG. The enforcement Scrooges started counting from Christmas Day. crazy

I spent all day Saturday taking mine down--finished at 10 PM. It's getting harder and harder physically to put the tree together and take it apart. I may have to look at another plan instead.

I'm with you Ted. Seems like every year it is more work and harder to get it all done.

I took my two kitchen trees down over the last two days. Next the tree in the living room and then all of the house decorations.

Just finished today. Would've been sooner but came down with that lovely 48 hour bug and was completely wiped out over the weekend.

My two trees in the kitchen are down and working on the living room tree. Then I take all the house decorations down. Hope to be done by the end of January.

Today we started bringing in our outdoor decorations. The inflatables are running in our garages in order to dry out before being packed away. All of our blowmolds and computer controllers are in the garages as well as our Snoopy countdown clock. Tomorrow we will take down all of the ropelights and arches that go over the front sidewalk. Then the tedious task of rolling up all of the extension cords.

This weekend or next week we will start taking down the indoor decorations.

I took down my Christmas decorations from my cubicle at work and my outside Christmas lights today. We will see if that translates to taking down any of my inside decorations any time soon.

After 3.5 7 hour days, my wife and I finally got all the outside decorations taken down, packed and put away. Today we brought all the boxes and totes for indoor decorations into the house from the garage. I think I need a day or two to rest up before we tackle the indoor stuff.

The good news is that we can now put our cars back in the garages.
