    Once it's over, I am sooo done with the Christmas stuff! It's coming down ASAP. The boys are aiming at Thursday if I can't convince them sooner! lol

    LynneLynne said in the chat thread, "we survived another year." That's exactly how I feel after it's done! I know...very Grinchy of me. I do have another reason, tho. These old ornaments tend to set off every allergy I have. Sooner they're back in the barn, sooner I feel better!

    New Years Day is a rule of thumb that seems reasonable, depending on the weather. Christmas came too soon & left too early this year. Felt like last week we were lighting fireworks and trading ice tea recipes.:)

    I don't even have to worry about taking them down. Never put them up in the first place!

    We must have the same calendar Sea. One moment I’m carving a turkey and sharing thanks and the next minute I’m hunting for internet buys offering same-day drone delivery so as not to miss the 25th.

    For me, it’s when either the leftovers or the decorations start to look tired, then they both go the next day.

    There are no such thing as leftovers. That sounds like 2nd class food. :( How about First Class Sandwiches ? :)
    Ham, here I come again. To honor you on rye !

    New Year’s Day on the years I decorate. After lindsey grew up and left home there didn’t seem to be a reason to bother. I must admit tho, I really enjoyed my little tree this year. I guess I’ll make the effort next year. Which will seem like next month....I should just slide it in the closet :D

    LOL There IS a new trend to do just that! I've seen people wrap the fake trees in some sheets or saran wrap and just slide them away until next year. If I had the closet space, it would be a good idea!
