Getting rid of X-MAS

Today I got rid of Christmas.

What, already you may wonder? Well, yeah I know I said that I am a total Christmas freak but it’s the planning, the decorating and the “making” of Christmas that I like more that the actual Christmas so come Boxing Day I am ready to throw out the tree and get the decorations back up on the attic. I usually try to hang on to the Christmas spirit until New Years Eve though but then it is definitely over.

So today when the sun was shining and the snow was slowly melting from the roof I cleared away every trace of Christmas down to the last needle. Then I celebrated with a cup of tea and the tiniest of peaks in a flower & vegetable seed catalogue. Now spring can come….

Take care

Well there are just a few differences between the twin sisters....my Christmas stuff is still around. My youngest wants it to be the whole vacation (which ends Januari 9th) and I hate so say goodbye to Christmas and welcome the dullest month of the year!
