    Inside or outside? That could be convenient for the following year's set up...

    "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more!"

    That's nice. Are you the only one in your area that leaves them up that late? Most people here took their's down before New Year's this year. I feel pressured just leaving them up until Epiphany. It's only the 10th day of Christmas, people!

    Mine came down last weekend. Could not resist, temps in the 30's with an expected cold front in the teens to single digits coming in...

    A minor change to my last post... the yard stuff came down, but the lights around the door and garage are still up.

    I'm in a condo, so for me it's pretty easy. I just take whatever it is I hang on my front door down. I always wait until after New Years.
