I think it’s time, people. It’s almost March…or it will be when you’re reading this. I know, there’s still snow on the ground. Nevertheless, it’s time to take down the Christmas decorations. That’s right, I’ve designated myself the holiday outdoor decorating police. Feel free to object.
I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet and it could have been just THE thing to do on a chilly, gloomy Saturday, but based on my visit to Mayfair yesterday, the economy is going to recover just fine, thank you.
I have no idea why, but nothing is as metaphorically cleansing to me as taking down the Christmas decorations. I am here today to say that I am cleansed of Christmas.
