StL has had temps in the single digits and even though we’re up to the low 30’s this week, there is still plenty of snow and ice out there to the point we haven’t taken our lights down. When I drive home, there are still PLENTY of our neighborhood plugging their lights in at night (mostly the pretty white ones, not the red/green distinctly holiday ones).
Anyone else?! I can’t believe it’s mid-Jan and they’re STILL up. And we probably won’t take them down for at least another week until our “warm spell” of the 40’s dries everything out.

us too! we got in from our wedding / honeymoon on 12/21 or something like that, so we just wanted a few extra days with the decorations up. Now it’s just that it’s so SO cold in FL that we can’t deal with taking them down and putting them in the garage! And strangely, our tree hasn’t dropped needles yet, so I kind of want to just keep it up as long as it lasts. @ejs – you’re not alone!

Ha! I don’t have any Christmas lights up but we still have our decorated tree up. As tradition we normall don’t take it down until Jan. 6 due to 3 Kings day but I have been so lazy. I keep telling myself that I need to take it down but then I ignore it.

All of our lights and Christmas decorations are down inside… but outside they are still up! I disconnected the timer so they don’t turn on, but it’s tooooo cold and snowy to dig everything out!

We left all of our stuff up until 3 kings too, but unfortunately, we took it down last weekend. Sniff. Our house looks so bare!

Ours are up!! We got married right before christmas and didn’t get to enjoy them, so Hubby has decreed that things are staying up til Valentine’s day – Love it! (and him!)

We took our lights and tree down on the 3rd, but our manger is still up. We kept them up for epiphany and then I just sort of got lazy about it. But they’re coming down this weekend, I promise!

I’ve declared my generic, all-silver Christmas decorations as “winter decorations” and therefore they’re staying up til March.

My tree is still up, it’s in the part of the house we don’t really go in, so it gets forgotten about.

Yes, and this is one of the very few things FI and I argue about. I am ready to take it all down and toss the tree out on January 1st. He’d keep them up forever. Drives me nuts.
