Some post-holiday questions:

How is it that a Christmas tree that I put up in early December and think is beautiful and majestic, magically turns into a tacky-piece-of-plastic-that's-dropping-an-impossible-amount-of-fake-needles-and-taking-up-a-lot-of-room sometime in the wee hours of Christmas morning?  Does that make me a Boxing Day Grinch?  Probably.  But how efficient would it be to just put all that crap away when your are throwing out all the wrapping paper?  I usually take it down on December 26 but yesterday Sam said he wanted it up for his birthday (Charlie Brown's birthday is five days after Christmas).  I don't know if I can wait that long.  How long does your tree stay up?

    We left ours up until after Valentine's Day once.

  2. I usually take ours down the day after New Years. (but I once left ours up into February!! That was a bad year!)

  3. My tree came down boxing day as well.. my house is too small to keep it up longer than that.

  4. I think our's will be coming down today. I'll leave the other stuff out for another day or two.


I would love your comments.
