I hear much discussion and debate starting in mid-Nov about the “proper” time to put out Christmas decorations… especially a tree. It seems people range from pre-Thanksgiving on into December. Personally, I choose the first weekend of December. I like to take the time to enjoy Thanksgiving and ease out of that holiday before starting another.
Now that we’ve finished the first week of January, I want to know: Is your tree still up? If it is, it is time to take it down. Pack up all of the decorations carefully and say good-bye for ten or eleven months. Truthfully, packing up the Christmas decorations always makes me a little sad, but at the same I feel a sense of relief at getting the house back to “normal”. It is a very peaceful feeling to have everything in its place once again.
Tell me, When you do typically un-decorate from Christmas? When does your tree make its grand exit?
I’m sharing some big news mid-week, so stay tuned!
