    Hey all, hope you had a great Christmas?

    Is it only me who wants to take all the decorations down now?! I love Christmas more then anything but for me it's over now and it's time to put everything away and have a massive clear out and clean ready for the New Year.

    Anyone else putting stuff away over the next couple of days?

    Lol, you are more then welcome to join in :)

    I'm exactly the same, it's the clutter that is driving me mental! We have stuff everywhere because we go overboard at Christmas. I know it's only once a year but I just want my normal furnishings back in place :)

    Mine only went up last week and they are going to stay up until the 6th January. I am still enjoying them very much (even if I did drop and break my favourite Mickey ornament this year :()

    Oh no sorry to hear that :-( have you looked for a replacement? Especially if it's a park one, there may be some on Ebay?

    My DB says I get bored of them because I put them on the first week of December!

    I've had a quick look, but can't find a replacement. I thought I may have more luck next autumn.

    My mum always put the tree up after my brother and I went to bed on Christmas Eve so we would wake up to a magical house on Christmas morning. As a teenager I would help her decorate while listening to carols on TV. So I still feel a bit naughty putting them up a week early.

    Hope you find it! :)

    I've heard of a few people doing that and it sounds like a great idea I think - I do get a little annoyed when I see people putting them up halfway through November!

    Mine went up on 1st December and are staying up until the very last moment. I LOVE my decorations so much and don't look forward to taking them down as my house seems so empty without them. I just love the glow of the Christmas tree lights etc...only 11 months until they go up again:rotfl:

    I like to keep mine up as long as possible too ::yes:: they don't always stay up right until twelfth night but they definitely never come down before New Year.

    I love my decorations as well - I just think my OCD kicks in after a while ;)

    I think I'm just in the camp of Christmas is over and onwards and upwards to New Year. I have a massive clear out etc before the 31st as well and I just like everything put away and fresh and ready for a New Year.

    I also get really down in Jan after all of the festive season is over and I am back to work. So I can't imagine coming back from work on the 2nd/ 3rd having to put decorations away!

    Really do think I suffer from SAD! :)

    I don't have to worry about it this year, as I never got round to putting my tree up as I was busy at work plus I can't find the tree. I think it went in the loft but didn't get round to looking.

    I too take the decs down asap, clean the cooker, sort out my cupboards, clean the house from top to bottom. I need to start the new year afresh, clean and tidy. I think I must suffer from OCD too!

    Ours will also be down by NYE as DS16 is having a NYE party and he's got about 10 friends sleeping over so we'll need the floor space :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    I feel exactly the same, my tree went up at the end of November, and I've had enough of it now. I just want to put everything away and start thinking about Summer and holidays. I think I will put everything away over the weekend ::yes::

    Well, after replying to this thread, it got me motivated to take down some of my decorations and cards, just my tree to sort out tomorrow :)
