You Can (Supposedly) Avoid Bad Luck By Taking Your Christmas Tree Down on This Day
We wish we could keep our Christmas trees up all year round. No room will ever feel cozier than when filled with garlands, twinkling lights, and of course a decorated tree. It has something to do with walking into a room and smelling the citrus aroma of a pine tree or turning on twinkling lights in the evening, which makes us extremely reluctant to leave that one Christmas piece behind.
Unfortunately, Christmas is over and the time to cut down our beautifully decorated, wonderfully smelling trees is getting closer. While some people (maybe a Scrooge?) Are excited about getting an oversized plant out of their home, many of us are pretty sad about letting go of the tree. We will be happy to postpone it as long as possible - maybe even a little too long.

Before deciding to get rid of the tree, check with your city to see if there are any restrictions on throwing a tree or if they have any scheduled pick-up times. Now you've decided to clear the room of all the Christmas joys (insert crying emoji here) and all that's left to do is choose a date. Some people choose dates for superstitious reasons, others for religious reasons, and others simply choose a date that is most convenient for them (usually sometime in February). Here are three of the most popular dates for cutting the tree:

December 31: Take your tree down on New Year's Eve before the bells ring at midnight. Otherwise, it means that you will be lugging all your luggage and bad luck from last year into the new year. If you are superstitious about these things, so be it.
January 5th: Take down your tree on what is traditionally known as Christmas Day - i. H. As the last of 12 days of Christmas joy. Imagine that the holiday season is closing.
January 6: Take it down on January 6 for Revelation, a Christian holiday that marks the revelation of God in human form in the person of Jesus. Again, some would say that if you leave your tree past 5th or 6th place, bad luck.
Of course, in order to cut the tree and properly store all of these ornaments and lights, some key products are required. Here are some of our favorite vacation organizers designed to help make this year's tree dismantling and reassembly a breeze for next year.
