Christmas is over for yet another year and we've officially entered that weird limbo period between Christmas Day and the New Year when time loses all meaning and you just sort of drift around eating a turkey sandwich.
There are a few ways to use this time, like catching up on all the Christmas TV you didn't get to see on the big day, or someone in your family might have the terrible idea that you should all go out for a walk for no reason.
However, some people are already done and dusted with the festive season and just want to pack the whole thing away and stick it in the attic until next year.
One of those people is former Love Island star Malin Andersson, who surprised fans when she revealed she'd already taken down the tree and tinsel.
Posting on Instagram, she showed a table packed with all the decorations that had been taken down and were ready to gather dust for the next 11 months or so.
Taking down the decorations on 27 December seems pretty soon to be throwing out all the festive stuff, but each to their own.
At this point most people will still be living in a haven of sparkly lights, shining baubles and a tree which may or may not be starting to look a little worse for wear.
The decorations are all still up but they're for a big day which has been and gone, while you know at some point you'll have to take them down and doing it in the cold opening week of January can seem a bit miserable.
The former Love Island star explained that her cleaner would be coming round soon, so she needed to get all of her decorations boxed up and packed away.
Knowing when to take the decorations down can be a bit of a tricky decision, as you want to get the most out of all the effort you put into making your home look nice but you don't want to leave them up too late.
Expert opinion says you should leave them up no later than the twelfth night, which gives you a little bit of time to figure out your plans to put everything away.
Depending on where you count from this means your decorations have to be down by either 5 or 6 January, but whichever way you slice it you've got only one more weekend to enjoy the decorations before they really should come down.
However, some people take their decorations down even earlier than Andersson as one woman split opinion when she got rid of the festive frippery on Christmas Day itself.
However, she had the excuse that her daughter's birthday was on Boxing Day, and so wanted to switch the decor away from Christmas and towards that event instead.
