The aftermath. Presents still to deliver; fluff on the floor. Christmas for us lasts until January 6th -- until the Magi come. Yet I don't even get into Christmas until way after Christmas Day. I suppose it's because for years Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are only second to Holy Week and Easter in stress levels. So for the next few days, I'll be in that spirit -- and I won't want to take anything down.
What else do I hang onto and why do I wait so long to engage into things? Questions to think on and ponder.
