Here it is almost two weeks after Christmas and all the decorations and tree are still up. The neighborhood is dark again, everyone else has removed their decorations. Taking the tree down is similar to unpacking after vacation. Both signal the end and I always put it off. There have been some years, however, when I couldn't wait to put everything away, but this year there is no rush. I guess that means I really enjoyed this Christmas. However, I think the cats are tired of everything, one of them spent the morning knocking the small deer and snowmen surrounding the gingerbread house onto the floor.
I'll take everything down tomorrow and put it away and remember that Christmas is only 11 months away and I can decorate again.
