Central Illinoisans Weigh In On Christmas Decoration Timetable

PEORIA - Christmas has come and gone. Now, only one thing remains, those decorations that were placed upon your house with care. Should they stay or should they go?
PEORIA - Christmas has come and gone. Now, only one thing remains, those decorations that were placed upon your house with care. Should they stay or should they go?

"Leave it up. It's just a fun time and there's no reason to quickly take all the decorations down as soon as the day is over. So, you can make it last a little longer," said Nick Maloof of Peoria.

For some, there's a bit of a grace period.

"About a week after Christmas, but we're going to take ours down today," said Mary Hampton of Lewiston.

But for others, the trees and Santa should disappear for the year.

"Five minutes after you open your presents because there's too much mess around," said Cole Baggott of Peoria.

"It's like you don't want to take them down right after because you want to relax and enjoy Christmas, just a little bit more, but if you take them down, like way long, you're just keeping them for too long and it just looks bad," said Dani Temple of Peoria.

"Either the weather was too bad for them to get them down or they're probably lazy," said

Homeowners we talked to don't mind letting the cheer linger. It's a way hold onto the holiday and the effort it took to make their house look good.

"Let's put it this way. I take two, three, probably three weeks to put it up. So, I want to keep it up as long as possible. After New Year's," said Bob Hirth of Dunlap.
