Is It Time To Take Your Christmas Tree Down Yet?

Christmas tree down

I know it’s only the 29th December, but I have been seeing plenty of people deciding to take their Christmas Tree down already, trying to De-clutter and tidy up the mess from the festivities.


When do you like to take your decorations and Christmas tree down?  6th January?  Let us know in the comments below.

I have spotted this novel way to wrap the whole tree, lights and decorations in cling film, what do you think, worth a try?  I guess it would depend of the types of trees you have, only an artificial tree could be wrapped like this.

I would love to know if you have tied this and it has survived for this year.

I never thought I would see cling wrap used in this fashion. ROFL

Of course, I dislike cling wrap because it NEVER clings to what you wrap it around, so I would probably get discouraged to use it on my tree!

    Hi Bonnie, yes that can be a problem with cling film. It would probably have to be heavy duty type too so it doesn’t rip.

I’m afraid I’m BAD, and have an artificial tree which gets boxed away every year. But it does have sentimental value for me as my son bought it for me when I gave away our existing one after a particularly difficult year. Joy

If I had a place to store the tree like that, it actually looks like a good idea! We put ours in the attic, so that would not work!

What a great idea!
BUT decorating the tree is quite a ritual in a lot of households isn’t it, so I think I will stick to the usual way.
Besides my tree is over 6 feet – I would need a heck of a lot of cling film LOL
I have taken some of my decorations down yesterday – but the tree will be done tomorrow on 12th night

Now that our tree is packed away, we have noticed that our living room is now a study in magnolia!
