Day 5: Boxing it up

I get so geeked each year to take out all of my Christmas decorations and festive up my house. Once Thanksgiving dinner is over, I’m dying to drag out the boxes.

It’s amazing to me how in just a few weeks’ time it’s all over. Time to put everything back into those boxes. The holiday just speeds right past and all of a sudden it’s the new year.

I’m usually ready. Especially when the tree starts to look forlorn and sheds its needles all over the place. But it’s a little bit sad to have to hide them away in the basement for another 11 months. I’m just glad for my all-purpose decor like my snowflakes. They can stay until the end of February. By then, I’m done with the whole winter thing anyway.
