I approve. The years that I've had a tree or lights, they were up until what my mother called Russian Christmas. Mom always had a menorah in our front window in December. We celebrated and respected everyone's holiday traditions.

We took the candle lights out of the windows and outdoor lights off the bushes on Sunday.

We have a multicultural family. With El Dia De Reyes on Jan 6 and Orthodox Christmas on Jan 7th, we keep our decorations up longer than most. We'll probably take them down this weekend, though outside decorations depend a little bit on the weather.

Then again we might not, since Old New Year is the 14th and Orthodox Epiphany is Jan 19th.

For Roman Catholics, of which there are a lot in New Jersey, the Christmas season lasts through January 13 this year. In the older tradition (which is still kept in the liturgical calendar of the Extraordinary Form of the Mass) Christmas lasts until Candlemas, or the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Presentation of the Lord, which isn’t until February 2.

The Feast of the Epiphany was January 6th, so not 2 weeks past the holiday for many. Ours never come down before then and if the lights are still up, might as well plug them in! The weather cooperated so we were able to take everything down, even outside, this week.

I absolutely love that people light up the darkness of January. Icicle lights here, electric candles there, I love all of it.

my wife took the indoor stuff down last weekend and the outdoor stuff yesterday.

people these days often pay professionals a lot of money to put up lights. also, a lot of people spend hours and many dollars doing it themselves. i cant blame them for wanting to leave them up as long as possible. doesnt bother me. some are really cool looking.
