Agtually…I’m always saddened a little when it comes time to take down my Christmas decorations. I love the Christmas holiday and the giving spirit that seems to envelope every one during the month of December. It’s always as if a kindness of spirit is resting on our shoulders asking each of us to think of others prior to ourselves.
Yesterday I took down my Christmas decorations and boxed them up to be stored in the barn until next year. As I gently wrapped each handmade ornaments, rolled up my ribbons and snugly packaged my nativity set I became a little saddened at the thought of waiting another year before I can proudly display my treasures again. I briefly thought about leaving my tree and window candles up all year but knew that Chris, not to mention my neighbors, would surely worry about my mental state, ha!! I even considered changing the tree decorations to match the seasons but knew that I’d lose that argument as well.
I heard once that it was bad luck to take down your decorations before January 1 of the new year…I wonder if I could stretch that out in the future…to maybe July, ha!! Hope you have a wonderful day!!
