I remember last year very well, boxing day evening, Christmas left my home. VANISHED!!!!! I’m not sure what the motivation was, maybe we were just bored. Whatever the reason we took down all the Christmas decorations that night. As I write this, the decorations are still up. My fiance’ however did hint that tonight things may be going away. When do you take down Christmas decor? When I was a kid we’d leave the tree up until January 2nd. Some Ukrainian families I knew would keep the tree up until several weeks after Ukranian Christmas. According to historical tradition, decorations should be left up until the Epiphany (January 5th or 6th) In some cultures it’s bad luck to take down your tree until after these dates.
I’ll let you know tomorrow if our decorations are packed away. They have been up since November 15th. Maybe it is time to say goodbye for another year.
