Christmas is over ........ Today we took down all the decorations, a day earlier than normal but half the family won't be here tomorrow and I wasn't going to let them get away without helping :)
It is tradition in our family that Santa puts the decorations up on Christmas Eve and then they stay up for the 12 days of Christmas and come down on the 12th day. Supposedly, if all the decorations are only up for the 12 days it brings good luck for the rest of the New Year.
I also spent some time making new pages for my blog and resizing photos - so much nicer than taking down decorations :)
Now all I have to do is put the decorations in boxes and pack them away........
