When Should Holiday Decorations Be Taken Down?

In The Mix

January 6, 2019

Over it! Bring those Holiday decorations down! When is the absolute latest that the decorations can stay up or is there even a deadline in your household? This week for "In The Mix" - we asked our DJs if they've already started to take theirs down yet or not. We’d love to hear from you on Facebook or Instagram @991TheMix (@991WMYX on Twitter) what your thoughts are!

Elizabeth Kay (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): "I take down my holiday decorations when I finally get sick of them and that’s already started. So, yesterday the live tree came down and now this week little by little, room by room, it will all come down and then I can finally dust and clean my house!”

Tony "Radar" Hess (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): "Oh! Oh, when do I take my Christmas decorations down? Well, um, I was sleeping there, just like I’m sleeping on taking the Christmas stuff down. Umm… I don’t know when we’re going to do it. I mean usually it’s New Year’s but we were so busy on New Year’s partying. I think it might be at least a week after Christmas this year. Or maybe I’ll just leave them up. Yeah and get an early start on it for next year! Hey, that’s a thought. I’m going to go back to sleep now.”

Dave "Producer Dave" Stein (5:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.): "Now! The decorations should be down now. I don’t have many decorations that I put up in my house, but when they go up, they go down as quick as they go up.”

Molly Cruz (9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.): "I think decorations should come down right after the New Year. I actually did mine just the other day, I was like, I think I did it on the 2nd. So, I was the day after, but I think right after the New Year, it’s a clean slate, there should be no more Christmas! No Christmas music, no Santa, no ornaments, no nothing. It should all come down, it’s a new year!” Aaron:“SCROOGE!”

Aaron Carreno (1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.): "I mean, come on, another couple of days doesn’t really matter, does it?” Molly:“It does matter!” Aaron:“I think you can keep them up through the weekend after the new year and then that is absolutely it. I don’t want to see these things.” Molly:“No!”Aaron:“It’s like five days! I’m taking mine down this weekend.”
