Might come down earlier this year. The tree is starting to shed big time and we have a new baby coming in about 6 weeks. my nesting instincts are saying all of the decorations have to be packed away before I go in to labor. If we start now, it MIGHT be done in time.

Real tree this year, so it will be gone pretty quick--maybe epiphany, maybe sooner. But the nativity generally stays out until Lent. The other little things get packed away gradually.
We have a closet in the basment just for holiday decorations so it's pretty easy to do it bit by bit.
OTOH, I would actually like to put the tree up earlier than we typically do. We don't usually get our tree until the first or second weekend in December. I would really love to get our tree the weekend after Thanksgiving and so have it up a for a few weeks longer total.
I really enjoy the lights in the winter darkness, but this year we have a real tree, and it sealed itself so it is really dry. It will come down no later than Jan. 2nd this year.

Now I feel like I can continue my organizing and decluttering for the new year.
