Are many people keeping their Christ-mas decorations up later this year? ?

Apparently in medieval times people used to keep their christmas decor up until long past January 5th until Candlemas? What are you going to do this year?

    Yes it is almost March and I still see Christmas gear everywhere. Arlington Va. is where I live and see it.

    Not on purpose. I have my usual problem with procrastination.

    Yes and I think it is because of the great Pandemic of 2020 still being here.

    But in medieval times it was so much cheaper to keep your lights up all year when coal powered electricity was not very inexpensive.  Today it's too expensive to keep colorful lives over our cave entrances. Public school education.  Gotta love it.

    Orthodox  Christmas is January 7th. My Grandmother celebrated and I still do too in her memory.  So decorations stay up until then.

    The celebration of Christmas ends on January 6 which is the day most Christians take theirs down.  The season of Christmas ends on February 2 which is when Italians take theirs down.  Saturnalia ends on December 24 which is why decorations have gone from supermarkets when they reopen after Christmas.
