Christmas tree - collection of Around Town, posted by Anna, a resident of the Downtown North neighborhood, on Jan 1, 2008 at 2:59 pm
How do I get rid of my Christmas tree? Can I just have it out on the curb on the day of my garbage collection? I could not find any info about what to do with my Christmas tree in the web site from the city of Palo Alto. Thanks for any response.

Traditionally, Christmas trees should be displayed until 12th night, the 12th day of Christmas which is 6th January. Doing so beforehand is curtailing Christmas. It only starts on December 25th (or 24th arguably) up until then it is advent or preparation for Christmas. Please don't cut the Christmas season short. It is so sad to see them on the curb before the children go back to school.
