I had a conversation this morning with somebody in my neighborhood. It started out, "Are your lights down yet?" 

Turns out, his wife's a big fan of taking Christmas down asap. So am I, but mine are still up because my wife likes them lit up through New Year's, which makes sense. (Why do all that work for just three weeks?!) 

One year, we took it all down Dec. 26 because of some busy weeks ahead. It was so nice to reclaim our home... 

Inside-the-house decor? That's your business. 

How about you, when should the outside stuff come down? I guarantee, we'll have lights up through January in our neighborhood, by the way.
