Re: Taking down DecsBecause we have childminding duties with our wee granddaughter, she helped us to put up our tree and decorations early on in December this year. For that reason, we are glad to stay with tradition and she helped us to take the decorations down today. The place does look a bit bare though, but well get used to it again, I am sure.
Re: Taking down DecsThey were talking about this on the news tonight, and saying the same as you Apricot, that we neednt take them down for 40 days and Candle as.

Re: Taking down DecsIt whatever makes you happy that matters Apricot, I like it too, I was a bit miffed when I came down on Sunday morning to my husband proudly announcing he had saved me a job and taken down the decs! If it were up to me I wouldn't mind having them up all year round, they have a way of making me feel all warm and happy.
Re: Taking down DecsMy Christmas decorations consist of four Xmas cards on my windowsill. Tradition dictates that I leave them there until mid March, when I will replace them with four birthday cards. The birthday cards will probably stay on the windowsill for a similar length of time. For anyone interested in tradition, this one came about out of an inability to be bothered to take them down.
Re: Taking down DecsI took mine down yesterday & it looked so bare.
