Most people will take down their Christmas decorations this weekend, although according to tradition you should do it on Twelfth Night (January 5).A day sooner or later is considered unlucky, and if not removed on Twelfth Night, then they should stay up all year.Why is it unlucky? January 5 is observed as the last day of Christmas festivities (the eve of the Epiphany).In the past it was believed that tree spirits lived in the greenery such as holly and ivy that people used to decorate their homes. Whilst the festive season provided shelter for these spirits during the winter, they needed to be released outside once Christmas was over.If this custom wasn’t followed, greenery would not return and vegetation would not grow as a result, causing agricultural problems.Even though Christmas decorations are now less about foliage and more about baubles and tinsel, people still feel uneasy about the superstition.How to recycle your Christmas tree and where to take it in the North EastDo all countries follow this tradition? No, as there is disagreement as to whether January 5 or January 6 is actually Twelfth Night, but January 6 is the day of the Epiphany.

Plastic mould The 11th month has arrived, not with a blast, but with a warm welcome. An occasional dab a snow, to be sure, but mainly near record warmth and the promise of more.
