Some post-holiday questions:
How is it that a Christmas tree that I put up in early December and think is beautiful and majestic, magically turns into a tacky-piece-of-plastic-that's-dropping-an-impossible-amount-of-fake-needles-and-taking-up-a-lot-of-room sometime in the wee hours of Christmas morning? Does that make me a Boxing Day Grinch? Probably. But how efficient would it be to just put all that crap away when your are throwing out all the wrapping paper? I usually take it down on December 26 but yesterday Sam said he wanted it up for his birthday (Charlie Brown's birthday is five days after Christmas). I don't know if I can wait that long. How long does your tree stay up?
