    Didn't get any Christmas ones ourselves, but if i had i wouldn't be binning it, as you simply don't know what could happen in the future. Have a feeling we may see face masks become more common after this anyway in flu season.

    I still wear mine :) a mask is a mask ;)

    I'd wash, put in plastic bag and put in with decorations. Masks aren't going away. There has been next to no incidence of flu this season despite a drastic reduction in vaccines available. I can see an element of mask wearing being required for a long time.

    That's exactly what I'm doing with mine, Caranica. They are going away with the 'soft' Christmas things, like Christmas stockings, jumpers and so on. :)

    I also forsee an element of mask wearing for the next while; especially on public transport. When you think of the difference between cold/flu levels this winter with masks/sanitiser in use, they really help stop the spread of germs!

    I threw mine out! I agree we will probably need them next Christmas but it’s an excuse to buy new ones :D

    Same with ours. Got packed away with all the other Christmas clothes.

    If we need them again great, if not even better.
