Christmas in February?
To Decorate or Not?
CHRISTMAS IN FEBRUARY?
This evening my husband and I tried to decide when we’d put away our Christmas decorations. After all, the neighbors had boxed theirs up weeks ago. But, we both liked coming home to the twinkling lights, the dancing flames of scented candles and the coziness of the fire.
Half jokingly, we considered keeping the tree up year round. But the more we thought about the idea, the more appeal it had. Besides being fun and raising spirits, we’d have a unique conversation piece right there in the middle of the living room.
I took stock of the Christmas decorations around the house. Maybe the mistletoe and wreath ought to come down, but a few treasures should stay.
What would the house look like if we put away our crystal angel? The room wouldn’t be complete without the snowman that plays “Let it Snow” when I push a button. The red and green lights that flanked our garage were beacons of hope and light for the weary, quite like the star in the East to the Wise Men.
