Un-Trimming the Tree

The girl opening her stocking - brother watching, Christmas tree shoe-horned into the corner.

I must admit that, un-trimming the Christmas tree can bring almost as much joy as trimming it!

After having the cheerful "clutter" of Christmas overtaking our small house for about a month - I'm always ready to get things un-cluttered, un-trimmed, packed up and hauled to the attic.

It's also easier to get back into a normal routine of school and life in general, when "Christmas" is packed back up. That being said - we are still on "homeschool vacation" (kind of a misnomer) and will probably be to some degree until next Monday.

So when do you take down your Christmas tree? Do you wait until the New Year? Wait until Ukrainian Christmas? Wait until Boxing Day?

We take our tree down after Ukranian Christmas...however, it would be a lot sooner if I were the only one at home!

We usually take our tree down on New Years Day. I have taken down a lot of my decorations already.
Happy New Year!

Never EVER until AFTER New Year's Day.

Usually I take it down New Years Eve (we're homebodies!), however due to out of town guests, I didn't get it down until the 3rd this year.

Hopefully dd will concentrate better on her home school studies this week better than last (we took two weeks off prior to Christmas, and began studies again on the 29th)-maybe that clutter is what did it!?!?
