When should you kill Christmas?


Image

Ok, it is January 18, 2012 and I really think it is time for the Christmas decorations to be put away.  As I wander around my neighborhood, I notice a few string of lights on houses.  Maybe that is OK because the weather is a bit dicey and it is hard to take them down.  Sure, they have squandered away the numerous good weather days when they should have taken them down.

However, I just can’t excuse the Christmas tree in the living room.  Really?  Christmas is over, New Year’s Eve has come and gone, and we even had Martin Luther King Jr. celebrations at school and you still have your Christmas tree up?  Did the weather hamper your ability to take the ornaments off the tree?  Did the rain keep you from untangling the string of lights from the branches?  The tree is inside.  There isn’t any bad weather to keep you from taking the tree down.  You just have to let Christmas go…it’s dead.

    For us Christmas is either put away Christmas day in the evening after the family chaos, or on New Years eve/day before going back to work.
    Although once I left the artifical tree up until April 1st, I was in college, busy with studies. I will never hear the end of that one.

    I’ll tell you what, taking my tree down aaa a very emotional moment. I feel for the man that hasn’t done it yet.
