My husband’s sister usually takes her Christmas tree down Dec. 26.
When Christmas is over, it’s over, she says. Besides, the tree takes up space in her living room.
Others I know devote New Year’s Day to packing up the decorations, a family project.
Still others leave them up until Jan. 6, Three Kings Day, the 12th of the 12 days of Christmas.
Me, I’m a Christmas extender.
I’m not in a hurry to pack away the nutcrackers, the lights and the nativity scene.
