It's been two weeks since Christmas...how long is "too long" when it comes to leaving decorations up?

Today my girlfriend and I took down the Christmas tree, put away the ornaments, and boxed up whatever other decorations we had around the house.

No more garland, no more stockings, no more wreath.

Admittedly, I was sad. I want Christmas to last forever, it's always depressing to box everything up and stare at a newly empty room.

How long do you wait to put everything away? A week, two weeks, a month? We've all seen those people that leave outside lights up all year, and hopefully we can agree that's a bit much...but where do you stand on "clinging to Christmas"?  Leave your comments below!
