If Your Christmas Decorations Are Still Up, You May Have Bad Luck
Did you take down your Christmas decorations this past weekend? If not, you may be in for some bad luck this year. According to the Sunday Express, many people believe that if you leave your decorations up past the "Twelfth Night," you are just asking for bad luck.
The Twelfth Night is "a Christian festival Christianity which marks the beginning of Epiphany. Epiphany is observed as the date when the three wise men came to visit the baby Jesus." Depending on your beliefs, the Twelfth Night is either January 5 or January 6.
Even if you took down your Christmas tree over the weekend, you still may be too late to avoid bad luck. According to a website called sheknows.com, some people believe that if you don't remove your tree before midnight on New Year's Eve, you will drag "all your baggage and bad luck from last year into the new year."
As for the most famous Christmas tree in the US, the tree at Rockefeller Center in New York City, will be removed tonight. Locally, last night was the final night of the Holiday Light Show at Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, PA.
