Although, today when my son saw the tree going out with the trash he said "Daddy bring my Christmas tree back in the house"...and I almost wanted to do it. Lol

That's when it was done when I was young and growing up in Louisiana. The tree was removed on that night. It was a tradition that ushers in Carnival/Mardi Gras season.

Just kidding...

It is the 12th night after Christmas. The night when, as mentioned above, the Feast of the Epiphany pops off.
