I finally got up the nerve to ask the housemates to take down the xmas tree and they said yes! My house is once again Jew-friendly!

Why did they have a Christmas tree up in almost-May?

Dude. A Christmas tree still up this time of year is annoying/embarrassing no matter *what* one's religion might be. Talk about lazy roommates! I hope they do dishes, at least . . . :/

And I join the confused masses in the "They still had it up after Easter?" confusion.

They had a christmas tree up in April? Weird.
I wish it was acceptable to not celebrate Christmas because of atheism, but no, I just get called a grouch.

While customs vary in the Christian and pagan households I've been in, the general sense is that the Christmas/Yule tree is typically considered

-seasonal through New Years.
-potentially acceptable whether through laziness or some other made up winter observance until about the 2nd weekend in January
-*cough* the holiday is over *cough* after January 15
-Hello! Groundhogs Day! Don't see any shadow fearing rodents in that tree.
-It's Valentine's Day, get rid of the damn tree already.

- Post-Easter? WTF!

And that's all assuming that the entire household was behind the idea of celebrating one or both of those holidays in the first place.

How was that house hunting going?
