Putting it all away
 
When will you put all your Christmas stuff away? I know many of you have already put it all away - and I am jealous. For the rest of us who are still over run with Christmas stuff - when are you cleaning?

I wish I could snap my fingers and have it all away.

I don't put mine away till after new years, the first or the second.

I still kinda like everything up right now, and am always kinda sad when I am taking it down because everything is all over, but that's pretty short lived, once it's gone I love it!

I normally wait too but I started taking some things down last night and plan to finish up today. I want to get it all put away since I'm having a c/s tomorrow. I'm ok putting it all away now and I'm sure I won't feel like doing it for awhile. and I'm usually a little blue after I have the baby for a bit until my hormones settle back down, so I think waiting will make it harder. Right now the excitment of having a baby tomorrow overshadows Christmas being over!

We put ours away on Christmas Night. It's not that I don't like it up, it's just our house is so small, we need the space :smile: We have all the kiddos help and it goes pretty quick and painfree.

I always put everything away on New Years day, I was raised to believe that it was bad luck to put it down sooner LOL. Last year I put it away early cause the house felt so crowded and I had the worst year ever...a tree fell on the house, someone shot our dog, our fuse box caught on fire and those are just the big things, there is more. So this year it will stay up, I may even keep it up an extra day or two just to make sure :).

We're keeping our Christmas decorations up downstairs until february, we all like the way the lights look down there and we're not near tired of them yet :)

Meh, I'm not in any rush. It doesn't take up space as the room it's al in isn't uesd much anyways. Couple years ago it was October before I finally got the tree put up...and then I pulled it out a month later.

I'm going to *try* to get it all put away today, thankfully it should be pretty easy. I didn't do much decorating this year, just the tree and a wreath. This year's tree is being given away on freecycle, hopefully it gets picked up today. I got a new one yesterday at Wal-mart, on sale for $19! Yes! So it's just a matter of packing up the ornaments and wreath..
