Putting Away the Christmas Decorations.
Today is Three King's day and, in my house, that signifies the official end of the Christmas season. It's time to put away the Christmas decorations. I've already taken down the wreaths and put away some of the figurines that decorated the tables and shelves. The last to go will be the Christmas tree and the Nativity scene. I always leave the dismantling of the tree to the very end. I will do that tomorrow. I like to hold on to the feeling of the holidays as long as possible.
Although the house is starting to look a little bare right now, and I am definitely going to miss all the colorful decorations , I am glad to get my house back. Let's face it, I need the space that is currently being occupied by the tree. So tomorrow, I will carefully remove all the ornaments, wrap them and put them in their boxes where they will live, mostly forgotten, for the next 11 months. But not to worry. It will be December again before you know it.
