How Long Is It Acceptable for Us to Leave Their Christmas Decorations Up After t

My family (my mother in particular) has always loved Christmas. But right after New Year's, I always want to take down our Christmas tree, the lights, everything.
--It's not that I don't want to keep the decorations up, but since the holiday is over, it seems pointless.
--But every year my mother stops me... and I see people who leave their decorations up for weeks . . . or sometimes months . . . after Christmas is over.
--Why do people leave their decorations up for so long? I know some Eastern Orthodox Christian churches celebrate Christmas on January 7th . . . because they use a different calendar . . . but I'm not sure that's it.
--Is it because people don't want the holiday season to end . . . they like the way the decorations look . . . or is it because they're just lazy?
--How long after Christmas is over is it acceptable for people to leave their decorations up?
What do you think? We will discuss it Wens morning!
