The Best Day To Put Away Your Christmas Decorations Is…Today…Apparently

If you still have your holiday decorations up, is it intentional? Or have you just been too busy or lazy to put them away?

Regardless of the reason, there is a single, perfect day to take your decorations down, and it’s today. Or maybe tomorrow. It’s the January 6th…according to tradition. I googled that.

Well…according to Christian tradition, you should be taking down Christmas trees and decorations on the 12TH NIGHT to avoid bad luck. Not the 12th night of the year, the 12th night after Christmas, which is TODAY.

The “12th Night” celebrates the arrival of the Three Wise Men when they followed the star of Bethlehem to bring gifts to the baby Jesus.

The only problem is that some churches start counting on different days. The Church of England counts from Christmas Day, which means the 12th Night falls on January 5th (I don’t care what England thinks). Other denominations, like the Catholic Church, start counting from Boxing Day, which means they say the 12th Night is TOMORROW.

In any event, it’s your house and you can ultimately do as you please. Let’s be real. Stay festive all year if you want.
