"Clean Up"?.....yes?....no?

Monday, December 28, 2009

Good Morning Friends, Hmmm?.....Monday after Christmas. Are you enjoying all your holiday decorations, or are you ready to tuck them away till next year??...This is always such a debate at our house. When I was a child, my mother decorated our home maybe a week before Christmas, so we thoroughly enjoyed all our "home's holiday decorations" till New Year's Day. However, since living in Southern California, I get the urge to "clean up" a bit sooner!...And after reading many of your posts this morning, am feeling like sooner is the way to go!

But then again?....We awoke to a cloudy & very cool morning today, so all the "red baubles" & "Christmas finery" are till appearing quite charming, so I believe they all can calm down for another day. I have decided to enjoy all their loveliness for a bit longer. Maybe tomorrow?...maybe the end of the week?....Who knows?...but today I am off to light a fire & have some tea & marvel over each & every bit of "holiday" adorning our home.

Wishing you a delightfully lazy holiday week!!...Now go get cozy!.....Love, Heidi XO

Hi Heidi! I'm going to start taking my things down New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Glad you had a wonderful day!

My decorations came down yesterday. The tree was very dry, and I just felt like getting things back to normal. So, it's done, and I'm ready to face the new year! ::Jill

Hi Heidi!
once the decorations are put away the house always feels so cold and lonely so I leave my Christmas decorations up as long as I can get away with it. usually until mid-January. we have an artificial tree so it's easy to leave it up.

hugs,
Missy

Hi Heidi :)

I know what you mean! We have left up the tree and a few Christmas-y things just to enjoy them a little longer. On New Years Day I'll take it all down, but for now I'm still in love with the season :)

xoxo,
rue
