Default When Do You Stop Turning On Your Outdoor Christmas Lights?

I've noticed, since moving to the country in Virginia three years ago, that a lot of folks stop turning on their outdoor lights tonight.

We will be keeping ours on until January 6th (Epiphany).

Just wondering when you take down your tree and outdoor decorations?

I'm feeling a little strange keeping ours on (When in Rome...)?

Most people leave them on through New Year's Eve.

I agree.. I take mine down on New Years Day.. Janauary 6th is just a little too long for me but whatever suites you. Some people take them down the day after christmas but I think that's too soon! :-) Hope you had a nice Christmas.

Thumbs up Thank You For Your Replies!

I agree with you.

New Year's Day seems more appropriate!

January 6th seems too long for me also...

Do you mean we're supposed to take them down?

I try to do it on the 1st as well.

I took my inside tree down today but will leave the outside stuff here in Roanoke up until sometime next week. We also have a house in Wythe County that is decorated and I plan to take all of that down Sunday.

Actually, I would have taken all of it down today but one of my neighbors asked me to keep it up for a little while longer.
