does this happen to anyone else?
i still have a half-dozen important
presents to wrap (a few to send),
still want to mail out some sort of
card, still feel like it's not over. the
folks who throw their trees out on
the 26th (yes, i know some are going to
the snow)- i just never quite understood. is
it just me? maybe because i adore
christmas, the joy it will bring. and
as i get older (thank god) it has almost
nothing to do with presents. just with
presence, being with others & love.
there is so much to get done. and
(now that i think of it) that's a gift in
itself. to have people still to send
love to! what could be better?

  1. we are chanting on the same note- love celebrating at least through 12th night. I have NYear's card to send, since Christmas ones were not done and little things to do- Keep it all year should be my resolution! pgt


  2. keep it all year- yes! that's the answer. happy 12 days, gaye; blessings, always. v

  3. Ladies: thank you. I just got off the phone grousing about this to a friend. She assured me that Christmas/New Year's holidays are ongoing!


  4. We keep Christmas going till the 6th.
    We love it so.
