The Time Has Come...

...the walrus said...to take your Christmas decorations down.
The kiddos and I walked around the 'hood today and took pictures of houses who haven't seen fit to take down their Holiday decorations.
It was actually quite funny. Every time we saw one The Little Man would point and yell "Christmas!" Made me chuckle:D
Then we went home and ate cupcakes:p

Have you taken down your Christmas decorations?

  2. They are some nice looking doors, but yeah, time to take the wreaths down. It probably takes all of 30 seconds to do.

  3. I get it if people can't take them down - if they are too high up or covered in snow or they risk frostbite if they try and go untangle lights from their roof. Whatever - I'll give them until April. This is Canada. It's cold.

    BUT.

    A house in my neighbourhood still has their lights turned ON every single night.

    What's up with THAT???? Unplug it, dude!

  5. I love that you walked the kids around and actually took pictures. Mine are down, for the record.

  6. Well, now I'm feeling ashamed b/c I made gingerbread houses with my girls like 2 weeks ago. But I think you should show some leniency for any activity that keeps kids busy in the winter.

  7. Um. Yeah.

    But I'm like that.

    Cute post idea, yo.

  9. My MIL still has all of her lights up, but the wreaths are down. The cupcake looks delish.

  10. The husband's best friend and his wife . . . they still have their tree up.

    A once living, chopped down, needle dropping tree. In March.

    To me, that tops even the yards with Santa still riding his blow up Harley, or Frosty still waving away.

  11. Maybe it's just been too cold to remove them. :)

  13. I had to be come back and read what I wrote 'cause golly, after your comment on my blog, I thought maybe I said I didn't or I was ambiguous. Was I? But I did. I took down my decoration before January 1st, Nap Warden, golly I did.

    Heh.

    ;-)

  14. Oh ugh! We drove through my in-laws ritzy neighborhood last month and people still had Christmas trees prominently displayed in the front windows of their McMansions.

  15. I can't stand to leave my stuff up past the end of December. It makes me feel like a slug. I am a little anal like that though.

    I have a sudden urge to go make cupcakes. Thanks a lot.

  16. I didn't have any up in the first place :)

  17. There is still one house in our neighborhood with Christmas lights on their tree trunks! Seriously?! It's March!

  18. I've seen a few wreaths in my neighborhood and some yard stuff. We took our stuff down right around New Years. It's time for the Spring Decos to be brought out!

  19. My hubby takes the tree down and all inside decorations down on Christmas day though this year I talked him into leaving them until the next day. But I will say that our lights are still handing on the house we just don't turn them on.

  20. We pass a house on the way to school that still has reindeer in their yard...you know, the white ones that light up?
    I guess we should be thankful they aren't lighting them at night, huh?

    I don't know, what is worse, this house or the one that puts up orange lights at Halloween & leaves them up (& on) through Christmas.

    lol

  21. I took mine down on February 1st which was about 2 weeks later than all the LDS gals on my block. I think they are all on some kind of crazy craft/decorating schedule mandated by the church because they all put their stuff out at the exact same time....

  22. seriously!!!
    Ours were down Dec 26th!

  24. Oh, that's too much! My decorations are definitely gone ... although somehow my son found a tiny Christmas ball ornament yesterday, hmm....

  25. Too funny! No Christmas decorations at our house. Although we have a number of neighbors who keep their lights up all year long.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hahaha! I LOVE that you did this, it's awesome and hilarious!!!

    I double, dog dare you to leave them little notes on their door reminding them that it's MARCH!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I LOVE that you did this. I am cracking up. This year...I had them down quickly. When Sugar was a baby...I had christmas lights on my house well into June. LOL

  28. That's great! I am pretty meticulous about Christmas decorations, they come down the first week in January. But I have to admit the snowmen are still around. I think they are safe to leave up until I no longer see snow on the ground. So in Michigan that will be sometime in June :)

  29. If I, the Queen of Christmas Crazy, can take down our 8000 lights, 40 yard ornaments, and various wreaths and trees, then surely those people can stop for two seconds to throw away a dead wreath. Gah!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yep, but just as I drove to work today I tried to use my telepathy powers to tell my neighbors to take theirs down. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Mine come down on News years day! Wow hard to believe some still have theirs up. Love that you got he kids into it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. wow
    people still have them up?
    maybe its a weather thing too?
    it's so freakin oddly hot here right now. nary a wreath in sight!

    ReplyDelete
  33. yeah, i'm thinkin' it's time.

    funny thing, tho, i had a dream last night (seriously! no lie!) that i was decorating my house for the holidays.

    which is funny, cuz i DON'T!

  34. Does every house in your neighborhood have double doors like that?

    I think I need to take my wreath down...oops. I never use the front door, so I never see it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow...still up in March! My son would love that, though. He is still asking about Halloween decorations!!

    Mine? Was down before the new year if I recall correctly.
