Millions of people in Spanish speaking countries celebrate Three Kings Day today. There are parties and parades and gifts. It's as big a celebration as Christmas Day. It's the official end to the Christmas season, and the beginning of Carnival which culminates with Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday).
When do you take down the Christmas decorations? I leave mine up until today which is Epiphany, or Three Kings Day, or Twelfth Night. You can read more about Twelfth Night HERE
This crazy family has 63 Christmas trees in there home, and they are not the Obamas!

I love Christmas decorating, but this is just way too much. Today this family takes all of this down. It takes them awhile to get it all put away.
Every room in the house has a tree or six.
I think they should perhaps think about redecorating the house instead of spending all the time it takes to put up 63 trees, and then take them all down again.
The clutter in this house is amazing.
Here in New Orleans many folks leave their Christmas tree up, and just change out the ornaments to a Carnival theme. For me, the tree comes down right after tonight.
