I love Christmas music. And Christmas decorations. And getting to spend time with family and friends. I basically love everything surrounding the holiday season…except taking down those decorations. First and foremost because I love the ambiance of the lights and all the joy my candy canes and miniature Santas bring me. But also because it is so much work. Seems like it takes substantially longer to take down than it does to put it up.
This year I was on it though! Or so I thought. I was determined to get it all done before leaving for our New Year’s plans. December 30th I have everything down, except the tree. And as I sit here today, January 19th, my Christmas tree is still standing. I look at it every day and tell myself “today is the day!” yet it does not happen. I even have it on two separate tasks lists. Everything else is getting done but yet the tree remains. Is today the day? Will the tree still be up for the next holiday season?
