When did/does the tree come down?

Postby bfshoppermom » Sun Jan 01, 2012 5:37 pm

I took mine (artificial) down today. Usually it goes down around this weekend...mainly because I want it all done and cleaned up before we are back to school.

We took it down on Friday. It was a real tree and was starting to drop needles. We usually have it down by New Years at the very latest anyway.

We took ours down today. I have always been told it is bad luck to take down tree before the new year. Some years it has been hard to wait since we get a real tree.

Our tree is still up! I will take it down in the next couple of days, just haven't had a chance to do it yet... and well, I've been hesitating too, because I am not ready for it to get packed away ! :(

I'll take ours down probably tomorrow but it may get put off until next weekend. I'm such a procrastinator!

I take mine down the day after christmas lol. Sad isn't it? I don't want to be bothered with it later so I take it down the day after and I make the kids put all their toys in their room

Tree Goes up about end of Sept to early Oct and comes down around Valentines day.
