In our church we don't start singing Christmas songs until Christmas Day and end with Little Christmas. My family's tradition has always been to put the tree up on the weekend closest to my birthday (the 14th) and to take it down the weekend after Little Christmas. The only time that wasn't followed was when I was deployed - the tree stayed up until I got home mid-January so I could put it away!

I think we have to remember there is a secular/commercial Christmas and a religious Christmas and the commercial holiday is winning out.
