My husband and daughter usually put ours up on Thanksgiving Day and took it down on New Years day. My daughter got married and move to KY. She was here to help put it up. She wasn't here on New Years Day. My husband said he was going to wait until she came for a visit to take it down. He was so busy when she did come home. As a matter of fact, he has been so busy including starting a new job that he just got ours down last week. That is the longest we've ever gone.

Where were you?  I mean what part of California.  Because in my MIL's neighborhood is high military deployment territory and if someone in coming home after missing Christmas lots of families "keep it up" until their loved one comes home.

The very last day, in my opinion, is Epiphany - January 6th.  The traditional 12th day of Christmas.  If people still haven't taken Christmas decorations down in your community, it is either laziness or someone is ill. Perhaps - they want the Christmas spirit through Easter?

Debbie,

That is what makes California.  And had you asked me, I would have told you where to have meals under $30, and still have good food.  And the reason our gas is a $1,00 higher is because it all goes to all kinds of fandangled taxes, that were going to be there "temporarily" and turned out to be forever taxes...I have lights on my deck, not for Christmas but because I like them.  They are sun powered and make me happy to see them...LOL  A

Some communities have an actual 'date' where Christmas decorations have to be removed, so it might depend on how active and strong their HOA is Debbie Reynolds.  I agree that it is not the weather!  Some take down their decorations right after New Year's, or that first weekend after the Holiday.
