It seems like just about everyone around here has already taken down their Christmas decorations. Perhaps they were taking advantage of the 50 degree days we had on New Year’s, but it seems like everyone did it a little earlier than normal. My Christmas decor is still up, I usually don’t take it down until mid January.
One of the things I’m particularly enjoying is the card garland on my stairway. I’m sure a few of you will recognize your lovely cards on there! I’m not in a hurry to take these down as I usually am with my Christmas cards.
I’ll probably take all of my indoor and outdoor Christmas decorations down some day next week. I’m never in a rush because I enjoy it so much, not to mention you spend all that time decorating why not enjoy it for more than a few weeks! That’s one nice thing about having natural holiday decor, it’s more wintery than Christmasy so you can leave it up a little longer. I’m really hoping the days get a little warmer so I don’t freeze my fingers off while taking down all that outdoor garland. I’ll be giving those Ethel insulated gloves another go at winter work. I will be sad as I always think things look really bare when all the lights and garland are gone.
