We would love to hear from people who are planning to give up their Christmas decorations for a longer time this year. Tell us the explanation why,
Now that 2020 is almost over and the new year is in full swing, many of us are beginning to think about whether it is time for the tree to be taken down. We want to find out, though, with many working from home, if the Christmas trees of the nation can remain up longer than normal.
There are numerous schools of thought about exactly when this should occur. The most forward-thinking of us may have already taken it down by the time they sit down to dinner on Boxing Day, but traditionally many wait until the twelfth night (January 5) to do so.
Decorations were not typically removed in Tudor England until Candlemas (February 2).
But if you want to put your decorations up, you’ve got history on your side, at least!
We would love to learn from those who are planning on keeping their Christmas decorations for a longer time this year.
Please feel free to contact us, though, if you plan to take down your decorations again.
