Daily Poll: How long do you leave the tree up?

The Daily Catch - published on 01/03/17

Katrina Fernandez gave us ways to keep Christmas going through the liturgical season. While giving it a read through we realized that it’s almost time to take the Christmas tree down:

Another way to keep Christmas going, even if your tree is dying and forcing you to pack away the ornaments: keep the Nativity set out through the 9th and continue to listen to Christmas music. Create a Pandora playlist of Christmas music or download some music to your listening device. Spend quiet time in front of your Nativity. Turn off the TV, light a few candles and study this scene of the incarnation. Use your imagination to picture those shepherds, and what they saw, the magi and their learned expectations.

There are definitely ways to keep the Christmas spirit through the season without a tree, but is it worth leaving it up until all the needles have fallen?

What do you think?
