“She asked me when the season of joy was supposed to end and I said I didn’t really think there was an exact date, so we left the tree up ,’til June that year.” - Story People I AM a big fan of family, fun and festivity, so the holidays are a big deal for me. Lots of preparation, planning and anticipation, followed by the brief flurry of the actual event, followed by a bit of a let down. So much excitement and anticipation, so fleeting the joy. For this reason I am never in a hurry to undecorate after Christmas.
While my fastidious neighbors take their trees down and undeck their halls in a timely manner, I continue to bask in the glow of my Christmas tree long past the time it is considered appropriate. One year we left the tree up until Valentine’s Day. Why? It was a bleak year with some trials and tribulations going on and I really didn’t see the point of putting the only pretty thing in my life (or so it seemed at the time) out on the curb.
