Normally I turn the lights off after Jan 1, but since it is a weekend I will run thru Sun night Jan 3 and will start taking lights down during the week.

Already down and packed away.  I take the first available date after Christmas that I can safely get on the roof.  This year happened to be the 26th

Well, as mentioned previously, the Christmas season traditionally ran until Epihpany, which is 12 days.  I think everyone has heard the song?  I leave mine on until Jan 6.  I see no reason to break with tradition in this instance.  OTOH, there are a couple of houses in the neighborhood that leave their lights on more than a month.  I don't have a problem with that.

To me, the season is from Thanksgiving thru New years eve.  The wife wants the display to run on Friday and it will but I will still need to start teardown during the day.  I will just limit it to the lights in the trees which is much easier to do when it is cloudy and Friday will be the only cloudy day during the teardown period.

I ran it through the 6th ... taking down will depend on weather and time (I don't expect the last of it to be put away til sometime in Feb at the earliest.)
