For years, you have dreaded the day after Thanksgiving because B insists on immediately decorating for Christmas. This season the decorating did not happen that day – nor the next day – nor the day after that. It was not better. It was WORSE! So now it is January 2nd and you still have the tree up because you just finished decorating for Christmas on December 24th. You have enough to worry about with guests coming for Christmas dinner. Do not make this mistake again! Next Christmas resist the urge to get a live tree – you don’t need the added stress. Decorating the tree twice in one year is TOO MUCH! You also don’t need more broken ornaments (there are too few left as there is).
