The Parent Bloggers Network wants to know how cleaning up after Christmas goes in my house. We could sure use tips from the SC Johnson Company at rightathome.com! How about you?
‘Tis the Month After Christmas
…my apologies to Clement C. Moore
‘Tis the month after Christmas and all through the house
Hang decorations not put away by myself or my spouse.
The tree is still up, the lights are still on
The garland still wrapped ’round the post in the lawn
Boxes are open and ready to hold
The season’s mementos of silver and gold
The attic sits ready and waiting for us
To load stuff back up with out much of a fuss
Our way is unusual, but that’s just our style
So our efforts at Christmas can last for awhile
At some point we’ll decide it’s time to give in
And place all the ornaments back in the bin
We’ll take down the lights, wrap the snowmen up tight
And pack them up neatly for next Christmas night
And once this is done, we’ll look at each other and say,
“Time now to decorate for Valentine’s Day!”
This is just the cutest! I’m a day-after-Christmas taker downer myself if at all possible. There’s something about starting off the new year with a clean slate and a clean house—if only fora few days! Thanks for sharing.
Impressive…the day after Christmas. 😉
