Christmas decorations are items such as Christmas lights, garlands, snowmen and baubles that are put up a Christmas tree or around the house during the Christmas season. There is no particular day that is set aside for the decorations to be put down. People can do so at their own time since people celebrate the period differently. In the past, Catholics took off their decorations after January 7, the day after Epiphany. However, this is not observed in the current time. It is sad to see them come down but it has to be done at some point and you can do so when you want to.
It is considered bad omen if you do not take your decorations down before the end of the 12th Day of Christmas or on the 5th of January. This tradition has been around since the reign of Queen Victoria.
The recommended date to remove the Christmas decoration is the Twelfth Night. This is the night before the twelfth day and it falls on the 5th of January. You should remove the decorations so as not to bring bad luck on the home. If you do not remove them on this day then they should be left to stay all year round.
