IT'S A GONER !!!

Christmas, that is ...

It's the twelfth day after Christmas. The end of the period known as Christmastide. The day that I take the Christmas decorations down.

I had this whole Gingerbread/Sweet thing going on. A combination Childhood Dreams/Sweet Fantasy/Diet Denial....


One of my favourite decorations. Who can resist a chocolate covered sundae, oozing with cream and topped with a cherry ?


My little Gingerbread cooks, complete with rolling pin and Gingerbread heart.


A wreath of sweets with a little Gingerbread Man. I couldn't resist this when I saw it in the store. It had take me home, written all over it...


I love this Gingerbread Man and his Chocolate decorated Candy Cane...


There were plenty of sweet Santa's hanging around..


Santa has gone back to the North Pole, or more correctly, a box in my spare bedroom..


Rudolph has quit singing 'Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer' ...though, now that I've written that, I'm not sure how long it will take for the song to leave my head !!

So what was your theme this Christmas??

Do you have a theme?

Do you take your decorations down on Twelfth Night?

Do you have any traditions involved with taking your decorations down?

I've decided, that when I'm back home in New Zealand, I'm going to hold 'Putting The Decorations Up' and 'Taking The Decorations Down, parties ... or BBQ's ...because Christmas is in Summer in that part of the world....

I don't really have a theme but I use a lot of silver and purple. There are tons of ornaments that the kids have made through the years. I love it!
We don't do anything special with decorating or undecorating.

I'm Jewish but The Husband is not so we celebrate Christmas and Chanukah. We have a tree but we keep things simple...most of our ornaments are snowmen, snowflakes, icicles, or silver balls.

This year, our tree stand was leaking, so we took our tree down the day after Christmas.

I don't have a theme either, just a huge collection of ornaments. Love all your gingerbread men. Too cute! I need to finish taking my decorations down. Christmas trees and Santas need to be gone. Snowmen can stay till it's not snowing anymore... usually about April!

No theme... but NEXT year I'm getting a new tree and am going to decorate it in blue and white. I'm really looking forward to it! I love your 'dieting' ornament!

Our house looked like Santa Threw up or blew up or something. I was happy (and sad) to take the decorations down

I'm so sorry I've gotten so far behind reading your posts!
We didn't get our decorations down until the 3rd weekend of January.. isn't that terrible??? With my uncle passing away right before Thanksgiving, I wasn't in the mood to decorate until about a week before Christmas so the girls talked me into leaving the decorations out a little longer.
I LOVE your ornaments! I love the sweet theme.... they're too cute!
