Charger Challenges: When do you remove the chargers from the table?

Q: My mother-in-law is hosting the family Christmas this year. We are wondering what the proper etiquette is for the chargers while people are eating. Are they to be removed from the table or do you place your plate full of food on them?

A: The first course is served on top of it, in its own dish or plate, and both are removed when that course is cleared, to be replaced by the dinner plate.
