There are two types of people during the holidays: Those who take down their Christmas trees immediately on December 26th…
And people like me, who, be it through sheer laziness or an unwillingness to say goodbye to the holiday season, or both, wait until the HOA threatens to fine me if I don’t take down my decorations.
And that makes sense, right? I mean, it took me forever to put them up, so I’m not about to rush right into taking them down.
Well, we did the research and have got some good news for you if your tree is still sitting in your living room.
When should you take down a Christmas tree?
Remember the “12 Days Of Christmas“? It’s not just a song about partridges and pear trees!
Officially, the proverbial “12 days” don’t actually start until Christmas Day, meaning you have, at a minimum, 12 days after Christmas to take down your tree, since it’s technically still Christmas until January 6th.
Basically, you’re all good if you’ve got your tree up still. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
