Today I ate the last Christmas cookie and swept up the last of the pine needles off the tree, signifying the official end of the Christmas season in our household. Well, I didn't really get the last pine needles; that won't be done until June, or never. It may well be that some of the needles I picked up in my evening's cleaning were from last year. Not from two years ago, though!
Our Christmas organization was not ideal this year, mostly due to schooling. Many people, for example, didn't get cards, a failing for which I take full responsibility. And I didn't make as much cookies and candy as I'd planned to, although, given the fact that I've only just now finished the eating, perhaps that was for the best. In any case, we'll do better this year. A November start, for sure! You heard it here.
If I'm not talking about Christmas by the day after Thanksgiving next year, please contact me and remind me of this post.
