We have had our Christmas tree up for over a month now. That's one of the benefits of having a fake tree...and being Canadian. Our thanksgiving is in early October, so we don't have to worry about mixing holidays. I love having the tree up, and turning on just the Christmas lights when I get up each morning. I'm not getting sick of it at all. A huge part of Christmas for me is the anticipation and preparation. That said, I am still looking forward to packing it all away. I'd rather have my decorations up early, and take them down on Boxing Day than put them up late, and keep them up later. I love starting the new year with a fresh clean start, and the house seems so much bigger when a 7-foot-tall tree is suddenly removed from it. I may keep the white lights on the kitchen trees up longer.
(Don't forget: Today is the last day of the ScentSicles giveaway. Let me know if you're having trouble commenting on the blog.)
