Lets be honest, if your tree is still up a full month after Christmas, it might be a good idea to just leave it up for 9 months until it’s time to Christmasfy things again. I beat that self imposed deadline by…. 4 days. Whew! The coffee table full of special ornaments whose special wooden box is MIA & kitchen Christmasy things not withstanding. Or the train on the mantle still. Or the wreath we lent my parents thats still at their house. 😉
In the spirit of honesty, I should just admit to myself that the toy nativity set us probably going to stay out all year (again).
