The Day To Take Your Christmas Tree Down To Avoid Bad Luck:
After all the time, effort and energy we put into getting our Christmas trees up and beautifully decorated, many of us put off taking it down for as long as possible. Since we can’t really leave it up forever, when is the best time to tackle the task? If you’re the superstitious type, you may want to take your tree down on December 31st, as it’s said that those who don’t will be dragging all their bad luck and baggage from last year into the New Year. January 5th, traditionally considered the Twelfth Day of Christmas, is another popular day to take the tree down, and so is January 6th, in observance of the Christian holiday Epiphany. Some say leaving the Christmas tree up past those days also brings bad luck.
