    I took mine down New Years Eve. My sons birthday is January 3rd so I want to make sure the focus is birthday, not lingering Christmas decorations. I only leave them up that long because he is so little and likes looking at the tree so much.

    Not before New Year's day. When I was a kid we took everything down on Jan. 6, Epiphany.

    After Epiphany, Jan 6.

    I hate how Christmas "starts" in November or earlier and then on Dec 26 it is suddenly all over. I like to let the season wind down to a gentle stop. FWIW, mine will come down this week.
