in newfoundland the christmas tree comes down january 6th - old christmas day (they really do celebrate the 12 days of christmas!).
my little tree came down yesterday because it was major cleaning day. i've always loved taking down the tree. putting it up is usually chaotic - so much happening around the occasion. when i take the tree down i'm alone. i can look at each ornament and reminisce . although the tree was so small this year, the livingroom still looks vacant without it.
