Final Christmas Tour Of 2010:

















SO not in the mood to get it all cleaned up yet. It's coming, but still not quite there. We have a winter storm winding our way in the next couple days so I may wait until the snow starts to fly again to get back into the mood of sorting through glittery baubles.

Have you put away all your decorations yet? Or do you wait until after the New Year?

All put away!!! I put them out early so I'm ready to move on...Today we are going to move furniture around so we will start the new year with something different...Happy New Year to you.

We wait until after the 1st of the New Year and sometime before the 12th Day of Christmas which is 12th Night on January 6th.

Usually late. I put the tree up on December 19th, so I will probably wait until Jan 9th to remove it.

I never did finish getting everything out that I wanted to! So haven't decided when to put it away. The fact that I have no clue when someone will be available to put them back in the attic for me helps me to procrastinate, as well! I really need help here, LOL! Last year I got a friend to come sit with me while I packed up the tree ornaments, which sat on a card table for a long time. Having the friend there forced me to get it done, and I also filed a rubbermaid tote with ornaments to sell. Hmm.. another year gone and that did not happen. A goal in the new year: to take the eBay university class at the local community college to get me started. Happy new year, Sonya!

PS: I forgot to say how much I enjoyed the "tour", and got some good ideas. I have to comment also, that your cat must be a lot better behaved than mine - you have things out that Lily would steal/chew on. Tiger's only sin is climbing in the tree (Lily does this too), so I had a small tree in my bedroom this year.

That wreath and those shadowboxes are the bomb! Love it all, and I'm happy to say that I've almost got mine all put away. At least inside. The outside is another story!
Wishing you health, happiness, prosperity and lots of great junk in 2011!

Always after! Usually not until Epiphany, otherwise my family would kill me!

Usually wait until after New Years. Getting the itch to do it, now, though. If I put up some candles & greens, we won't feel too deprived... I hope.

I broke down and put everything but the tree away today! It was snowing so heavy here this morning, I ramped up the Christmas music and went to town:)

Sue said...

You are SO good, Sonya! Sounds like a good thing to do on a snowy day! My stuff will be up at least another week.

Happy New Year!

We decorate for Chanukah and try to wait till that is over before getting the Christmas stuff out, depending on when all this lines up on the calendar. It is only my second Chanukah so this is what we have done so far...anyway, since we get the Christmas stuff out later, we plan to keep it up till the first w/e after New Years. My mom gets inspired and usually takes her tree down ASAP...sometimes Christmas NIGHT!!!!
