Taking down the Christmas tree

January 7, 2009 12:13pm CST
well, it's that time of the year again, and yet again, we've waited as long as possible to take down the tree. So, today's the day. I don't have to work until this evening, so I can get the tree taken down and the decorations put away. Have you put away your holiday decorations yet? Or am I the last one?

We have taken down the Christmas tree. We did that yesterday. I was telling my husband while we were doing it, that it is alot easier to take down a Christmas Tree then putting it up. I in a way love taking it down then putting it up.

I prefer putting it up, but I do admit it is satisfying to put everything neatly away. I feel more ready for the new year.

Wow! This discussion was for last year's Christmas, I guess, but now it's only two months away for another Christmas joy!! So, I haven't even put up the Christmas tree yet and now it's about taking it down. Seriously, I will only put away all the decorations and the tree at the end of January because I love the color lights on the tree and it's not every year that we will have that kind of festive atmosphere.

I usually wait to take down my Christmas tree until the last possible minute. I really like how pretty and cheerful all the Christmas decorations look, and it kind-of depresses me when it's time for them to come down. With my little one walking this year, though, they got put away earlier than I usually do.
