    I have never heard that it was bad luck - but it is hard to move forward with the vestiges of the past all around. Best to start off the new year with a clean sweep of the house.

    Peace!

    Bad taste maybe. Bad luck no. There is no luck with decorations. They are there to make you happy.

    We have left ours up till the day after New Years before. One year hubby and I left it up till after Valentine's Day. The tree was in a room we didn't use very often. We were also hardly ever home due to his Mom dieing of Cancer.

    No, technically, decorations should be left up until after the Epiphany.

    No, but you should take them down about a week after New Years'.

    No, we keep ours up till New Years Festivities are done. Then we take every thing down and put it away till next years begin!!
