Well, it's hard to believe but Christmas has come and gone. This year has flown by, at least for me it has. Now that Christmas is over when do you start taking down all your lights and decorations? It's a question that's plagued mankind for centuries, just how long do you leave it all up before packing it all away?


At my house we usually start taking everything down right after Christmas, or the week right after Christmas. Sometimes depending on what's going on, we'll leave it up until New Years'. But that's the absolute latest we'll keep it up before we start boxing it all up and storing it away until next year.

So when do you take your decorations down? Take the quick poll below


It's a sad day when you start to take all the decorations down, especially when you think of all the hard work and time it took to drag it all out and put it all together. That along with trying to re-package everything and put everything back in its original box. Or is that just me?  Surely not, it can be a real pain to do though.


I have friends and even family that keep their tree and all their decorations up until after January, some even later than that. Some people I know keep their Christmas lights on their house all year long. That way when late November hits they just flip the switch and they're good to go. They're permanently attached to the house. I guess that makes sense, but it looks kind of weird in the middle of Summer.

When do most Oklahomans take down all their Christmas lights & decorations?

Top 10 Snobbiest Towns & Cities in Oklahoma

Don't shoot the messenger. I'm not calling these places snobby, the internet is. A recent report by Roadsnacks.net identified 10 of the snobbiest towns and cities in Oklahoma. The methodology behind the study used median household incomes, the percentage of the population with college educations, and median home prices in determining just how snobby a town or city is. Most would agree with the results below. Unless you live in one of these places, then you may disagree. Also, keep in mind this list was all done in good fun. Sure there's some truth to the findings but like most places, you'll find both good and bad. Keep scrolling to check out Oklahoma's top 10 snobbiest towns and cities to see if your hometown made the list.

Top 20 Oklahoma Towns Most Hated by Okies

Oklahoma spends quite a bit of time talking about why we don't like everywhere else. Like Sooner fans and people in Southern OK talk trash on Texas, Northern OK hates Kansas, Eastern OK isn't fond of Arkansas, etc... but what about our own state?

I ran across a dead thread on liberal Facebook--AKA--Reddit where people were talking in detail trying to rank the worst cities in the state. While you may not agree politically with your fellow statesmen, you really can't defend a lot of this. Here's the list for least worse to absolute worst as voted by them.
