Um yes. Sorry. ;)
We have the same stove! But yes the time has come.. can't wait to see what vday crafts you hang up instead
You don't have to do anything you don't want to. Leave it until February. Why not?
Yes, you must take it down, just like I did☺ You know, if it was up all year it wouldn't feel so special to you, so taking it down can be a good thing. Maybe what you should do is look for a small tree - about 2 to 4 feet - that you could decorate for the various holidays: Easter, Valentine's Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, 4th of July. Then you'd always have a tree in the house that you could enjoy!
It is beautiful. I can understand why you wouldn't want to take it down. I know I didn't want to take my tree down this year, but the space I reclaimed once it was down was so worth it. -Abby
