However, there’s some confusion, with many people thinking of January 6th as being the twelfth night – that is, if you count the days from the first day of Christmas, which is Boxing Day.
Regardless to whichever tradition Enderby residents subscribe, the result is the need to either pack away or dispose of the decorative baubles and real Christmas trees. The most awkward of these is the ‘real’ Christmas trees.
This year, Blaby District Council will once again be collecting Christmas trees for recycling during the new-year period, and as the Christmas festivities come to an end.
Christmas tree drop off points will be available at the following sites until Friday 8 January.
Enderby – Leisure Centre car park, Mill Lane
Elsewhere in the District:
Countesthorpe – Co-Op Supermarket car park, Main Steeet
Elmesthorpe – Village Hall cat park, Wilkinson Lane
Glenfield – Samford Street car park
Glen Parva – Playing field car park, Dorothy Avenue
Huncote – Pavilion Leisure Centre car park, Sportsfield Lane
Narborough – Narborough park car park, Desford Road
Stoney Stanton – War Memorial Playing Fields, Carey Hill Road
Thorpe Astley – Aldi Car Park, Meridian Way
Whetstone Tip, managed by Leicestershire County Council, will also take residents’ trees
