Aparently, the Queen stays in Sandringham, Norfolk til end of Feb......during this time she likes the decorations and tree to stay up!!!!!

my tree and white lights are on...pretty, .all other decs are back in the loft.

first year i have done this, and i must say it is quite relaxing (i feel a tad like im on a mini holiday wot with children back at school and being able to sit in peace without above mentioned nagging me for something!!!!)

yes feeling all snug with my Christmas tree sparkling!

That sounds lovely. I've kept my metal christmas tree up that I hang my swarvoski crystal christmas ornaments on. Took me ages to find something to hang them on so didnt have them displayed for 5 years sad.

Ours are real too. Grown by our friend on his estate. We put it in moist soil and keep it watered, hardly any droppage.

My sparkly sticks stay all year, they've got Easter eggs hanging on them at the moment.

DD2 put the Xmas tree though the shredder last weekend. We got one dry day.
