I usually take my lights down after the first week of January but have thought of leaving the candles in the windows for longer, I have a cape cod with six windows in the front and they look lovely in the windows.

This year I opted for white snowflake lights. So I feel fine about leaving them up all winter, LOL!

I grew up waiting until January 5th, the 12th day of Christmas.

They must come down by the 12th day of Christmas which is by the 5th of January.

I believe they should be taken down prior to New Year's Eve because I think that is a different holiday.
