Some of you may know that we put up our Christmas decorations late, according to today’s standard, but also take them down late. We wait until the Epiphany, or the 12th day of Christmas to take everything down. It falls on January 6. This year, we took down our Christmas stuff last weekend.
Both Brian and I took down ornaments off the tree, then he moved on to taking the lights off as I was boxing up the ornaments. (Sadly, we did lose 2 glass ornaments when taking down our tree.) This was the scene about half way through taking the lights off.
Oh my goodness. I swept the floor after all was said and done. Then vacuumed several times. The vacuum got clogged and had to be cleaned out twice. Poor tree.
