Wednesday

Waking up to snow is always a nice surprise (this was taken from our hotel room in Canada).

After over an hour and a half wait at the border and an apocalyptic hail storm whilst in traffic on I5 we're home.

I'm working out the final details for a gathering we're having on New Year's Day, and debating about whether to dismantle our Christmas tree beforehand, or leave it. When do you tend to put away your holiday decorations? Usually we do it January 2, but I often long to do it before that.

Happy Wednesday. xo

We dismantle the tree after the Jan 6th - I like to have Christmas decorations around during the holidays.

We like to keep our decorations up alittle into January. It keeps the feeling going as we ring in the New Year!

I've enjoyed checking in on your posts this year. :)

Traditionally I think you're supposed to keep the tree up until Epiphany/Three Kings' Day/Nollaig na mBan/Twelfth Night which is on the 6th of January. We started doing this a few years ago and it feels so much nicer and relaxed.
