Hang On In There, Angela [Jan. 4th, 2015|11:18 am]
Tony Grist
We're taking down the Christmas decorations. Kirstie says it's bad luck unless you leave something up until Twelfth Night. This is a superstition I've not met with before but I'm going to honour it by leaving Angela the Angel in place.

That tradition was current in my family.

Ah. So it's not regional.

I grew up believing it was unlucky to leave anything up after Twelfth Night.

That was the flip side of the same tradition. Twelfth Night was a perilous causeway between two tarns of the blackest luck.

I can remember being horror struck to discover decorations that had been over-looked and were still hanging around in late January.

I was also under the impression that it was leaving them up after Twelfth Night that was the unlucky thing, but taking them down before was ok. There was a date when you got a second chance to dodge the bad luck, but I can't remember when that was. I know it involved leaving the decorations up for quite a while.

I't usually leaving things up AFTER twelfth Night which is considered unlucky.

We always take the cards down on Twelfth Night.
