Why can't it stay up forever?

January 7, 2019

To me, the next three months are the worst three months of the year.  January, its dark early and cold all the time.  February, cold all the time, and the thought of another cold month is taxing.  Finally March, the last real cold weather month, before we have random warm days.  However; January is defiantly the worst of them.  Not only because of the weather and the darkness, but we also have to take down the Christmas tree and lights. 

I love the Christmas tree.  It makes the room feel cozy, the warm glow of the lights in a dark room, the smell of the outdoors, all wrapped up into one package, and in a few days, the room will be dark like the outside, the lights will be packed away into the basement, and the tree will be on its side, on the cold curb, where it will meet its demise.  If Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, this is definitely the worst time of the year, bring on summer!
