    Traditionally after the 6th of January, otherwise known as "Little Christmas".

    I normally do it when everyone goes back to work.

    Tradition has it that the decorations come down on 12th Night (6th January), My Mums birthday is on the 7th January (she will be 92 next Wednesday) and she says she used to be very upset because the decorations were taken down before her birthday.

    Just finished taking ours down - its a mammoth task that takes the best part of an afternoon :eek:. Had the flu since just after Xmas day so today is the first day I've felt up to doing anything. Back at work on Monday, so I couldn't face having to take the decs down on the twelfth night after a day at work.

    .......I have been known to take the whole lot down on Boxing Day in a mad fit when I was sick to death of seeing everything round the place :D

    House is all nice and tidy again now!

    I like to keep them up until the 6th (i.e. as long as possible) but my husband decided he was sick of Christmas yesterday and took them all down, so now the house is all bare again (but at least I don't have to pack them away!)
