Writer's Block: Tinsel town

Do you put up decorations for the holidays? If so, when do the decorations go up and when do you take them down?

As a child, and during the 30 years of my married life, we always had a real tree, and Christmas was a big deal, especially for the kids. Now that I'm on my own, I made the concession to convenience (and cost) and purchased a little pre-lit artificial tree, which will go up as soon as I can dig it out of my storage space (it's in the back, of course.)

I love Christmas - it's a wondrous time of renewal and reflection. I try to get the decorations up as soon after Thanksgiving (not before! not before!) as possible, and they usually come down the day after New Year's or thereabouts. The only time I got rid of a tree early is one year when we had one that was so dry it was a fire hazard.



May this season bring you joy and cheer!

I used to decorate my room with a couple of purple garlands around the ceiling (back when I had one) and a small tree with a small set of lights on some random flat spot, but I've since run out of ceiling (due to being right under the roof) and random flat spots.
(I suppose I really should clean off that other, unused desk...)

As it is, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
