Re: X-mas 2017

We've always used an artificial tree. It's nice to look at, but we get tired of looking at it. It's just so... Out of place. Besides, I had to move the loveseat downstairs to make room for the tree. I prefer the loveseat as it is much more useful. Looks better too.

12 days of Christmas? I always thought that was before Christmas. No biggie... I never could remember what came after "Five Golden Rings" anyway.

I even took a day of vacation to pull that thing down.

Common misperception (thank you mass marketing and commercialism!). Twelve Days of Christmas is AFTER Christmas.

Now all I need to do is put that on a flyer and in all of my neighbors' mailboxes, since they think I'm just really slow to take down decorations.

Happy New Year!

I am in my pj's, watching bad movies, and enjoying the warmth of my home in sub-zero wind chills. I hope you all are as comfortable where ever you are as I am. I'm sending wishes to all of you for peace, health, and happiness in the New Year!

Happy New Year to you!

I'm not yet, but planning to be soon, in my pj's watching other people who enjoy being outside in freezing cold weather celebrate the ball dropping.

Re: X-mas 2017

Celebrating one of life's small victories - ours was not the last house in the neighborhood to take down the Christmas decorations this year.

Re: X-mas 2017

Mine are still up and lit! This is the last night to light them, though.

I don't know when they'll come down. The 0F weather and snow/ice make it too difficult to take them down. We'll probably wait until it's a balmy 40 and sunny.
