hmmm, guess a personal preference, we had artificial for the last 7 or 8 years, now.

O, I hate artificial trees. My parents finally got one in the early 1970s, and the needles looked like hair brush bristles. Pam.

Hi Mike,
That's actually too true. But then again, you could argue, that if you have an artificial tree, you might as well keep it for the whole year?

No, January 6th. (That's the feast of the Three Wise Men, or the Three
Kings, or the Epiphany, or Women's Christmas, or Little Christmas; depending
on where, who, and what, you are! Christmas, despite commercializaation, at
heart isn't a secular or non-Christian festival.. Sunday doesn't count as a
normal day etc., etc. There are English-speaking people from all over the
World on this and other similar lists. (People in many other countries ton't
take down their Christmas decorations until about the 7th of January.)

Of course, technology itself in no way observes such traditions. But often
the people behind it do.

That would still only be through January fifth. I just counted twice. Pam.

Hi all,

Yes, Christmas has twelve days, from December 25 to January 6. I
figure if Muslims can celebrate Ramadan for a month, and Jews can
celebrate both Chanukah and Passover for a week, then I'm entitled to
celebrate Christmas for twelve days. C'mon, folks, stand up for your
rights. Victor's correct, the liturgical calendar says Christmas lasts
twelve days, and that does not have anything to do with stores that
insist that Christmas starts on October first. Idiots!
