    I don;t know about taking them down this year, but if this gound freezes any more, it will take a RR spike to be able to put the Christmas ones in... lol

    Since January 1st falls on a Friday this next year, I'll probably get the outside ones down beginning on the 4th...

    We leave our place lit every evening through 12th night so they'll come down the first weekend after.

    Us too! The rest of the street goes dark January first or earlier.

    I alternate colored lights with white lights every other year and the white light years (this year) I try to push it longer, especially if there's snow! I feel like I can say they're New Year's lights.

    Part stays up longer, like the icicle lights on the roof and sometimes the lit garland around the garage. I have been known to fire them up now and then...

    One of our neighbors had every light and scrap of Christmas taken down 12/26. One across the street took everything down 12/28 and he usually leaves his up until 1/1. I thought perhaps this year people might leave them up a bit longer.
    I am happy to say that 3 others still have theirs on tonight, but I fear it might be the last night.

    I’ll probably keep mine up for a few more days. Next weekend at the latest.

    Since the weather is a little bit warmer today, I have already started removing the outside decorations. It will take a little while for them to totally dry off and then the plans for next year begin. I'm thinking of a Christmas chair, with an arch and inflatable Santa behind it and make it available for a photo stand.
