It seems like everywhere I look people are bragging about taking the tree down and having everything packed up. People posting on
I JUST. DON'T. GET. IT. Maybe it's because growing up Christmas was an extended season in our house? We ALWAYS had a live tree. And we ALWAYS had an early family Christmas- just my parents, brother, sister and I. We spent 17 hours going over the river, through the woods, on interstates and stranded at rest stops to grandparents houses to celebrate. With ALL of our extended family living in New York we averaged 5 Christmas celebrations while there.
|Ours was not nearly this fancy. No wood paneling for us. A basic blue model sans a/c or radio was more our speed.|
After nearly two action packed weeks of cousins, snowmobiling, snow forts and great memories my family of five would cram into the swagger wagon, crank up our walkmans and hit the road.
When we finally arrived home after 2 days
As I type, I gaze at our eight foot live White Pine in all it's glory -with the colored lights and each ornament with it's own story to tell. Around here we are proud to keep Christmas up until 2012, thankyouverymuch.
What about you? When does Christmas get boxed up at your place?
