What are the correct decorations for Christmas? Traditional garlands were made of evergreen leaves, pine cones and ribbons. Evergreen leaves signify everlasting life. Cotehele is a big house in Cornwall. They usually have a garland made of flowers, 60 ft long. Some of the flowers are "everlasting", others are dried. When should they be hung up and when taken down? For some people the season starts with an Advent calander (1st December, with 24 windows) and concludes with Epiphany. For some other people there are only twelve days of Christmas. And the others? There are forty days of Christmas - from the evening before Christmas Day until Candlemas. Do you still have decorations? This Christmas tree is thrown out. I will keep some of my decorations until February.
