Why do the decorations have to come down so fast?
While trundling around today. I was surprised to see people taking down their Christmas decorations. I also saw workers taking down the Christmas decorations in a nearby park. I was saddened that only a couple of days after Christmas, some people are already taking their decorations down.
This year, Milady and I made a conscious decision to not buy gifts and cards for each other, and not to buy presents for anyone but the little kids in our lives. As a direct result, this has been the most stress-free and enjoyable Christmas that either of us can remember.
Perhaps that explains my reluctance to bid goodbye to “the most wonderful time of the year”. Traditionally, Christmas decorations come down twelve days after Christmas — on or about January 6th.
So why the big hurry?
