Last day under the tree

Our little stuffed Christmas moose (his label says that his name is Moosletoe) is hanging out under the tree this year. Today's his last day out before he goes into hibernation for another year, along with all the other holiday decorations. My tradition is to put Christmas away on New Year's Day. I think that started because NYD was often the last day off before going back to work. And, by NYD, a cut tree is dropping needles like crazy.

The Santa candle was a gift, the stuffed bird and fabric wreath ornaments were made by my stepmother, many, many years ago.

I don't have the cut tree problem any more, but I still want things put away on the first of the year. Fresh start, and all that.
More likely: old habits die hard.

  1. Awww, sweet ornaments!
    Yeah, yeah... you know it... you're an organized guy who needs everything tidy and put away to start the new year, or you won't be comfortable. (Me... not so much LOL.)

  2. I hope our decorations can come down tomorrow. I must give Household Management a bit of a push about the matter.

  9. It is 1 January and we just took down our tree as well. It felt good to see the house so simple again.
