Why do we see so many Xmas trees still up in February?

The practice of decorating trees for Christmas is relatively new in Korea. Just as in some Western countries, retail businesses put trees up around November to begin enticing consumers to think about their Christmas gift list and start buying early. 

In the West, the trees are generally taken down after New Year. In Korea, there are two New Year's holidays. Lunar New Year can come as late as mid February so people tend to keep the trees until have all the holiday festivities are over. This is why you'll see Xmas trees up until end February and sometimes early March.

Some people treat decorated trees as part of their decor and just keep them up all year - for no specific reason other than they like the look.
