Right now, many of us are probably up to our elbows in tissue paper, boxes, and plastic bags.
Taking down Christmas decorations, packing them into boxes, and hauling then up into the attic is no fun chore. While the holidays, themselves, are exhilarating and looked forward to, the aftermath is something we'd probably rather skip.
While there is no rush, it's a good feeling to get everything packed away so the house can get back to looking neat, clean, and organized.
Please don't think I'm complaining about the huge amount of work it is to put away decorations. Christmas is my absolute Number One favorite holiday of the year and every bit of work preparing for it and cleaning up afterward is worth it. It's a gala month and a half that fills my heart with immense happiness and gratitude.
