Our friend Dan finally took his Christmas Tree down (well to be fair, his girlfriend did it the other day when he was working). It's amazing that they held out this long, although he said in his family they have a longstanding tradition of keeping the tree up well into March. It's not something we've ever done so we were surprised to hear tales (when we asked other friends) of still having their tree up in spring.
When you love Christmas as much as we do, it can be hard to pack up the decorations and put them away post-holidays. The other night we had friends over who talked about once leaving up a tree all year and re-decorating it for every holiday (theirs was fake, so no more chance of a fire-hazard than it ever was). And look what Ashley of Our Little Apartment did with her tree (above) last March!
For us, we need the space back in the living room so we're not even tempted. Besides, having a Christmas tree in the house might really confuse the Easter Bunny. What about you? What's the longest you've ever kept your tree?
