New Years Day
Traditionally on New Years Day, I take down the Christmas Tree. I did it. This year my tree was blue and white. I thought it was pretty, not as magical as I had anticipated. Gretel walked in, looked at it and said, "I didn't know we were Jewish." My brother and sister-in-law just out and out said they didn't like it. We will try something different next year. I put away all the little houses and shops in my village and reorganized the attic to get every thing to fit. I got out the boxes for the Christmas dishes but it will take waiting until the dishwasher has run to get them all. We will leave the outside lights up a little longer and the Manger scene stays up until the Epiphany.
