"Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind." -- Mary Ellen Chase

Life That's the worst part of Christmas over with. We took the decorations down this morning and dumped the Christmas tree on the park's recycling pile. When I was young I'd get so amusingly distraught about the process that my parents made sure it happened while I was out. But the adult version of me now understands that actually it's just one of life's processes and that if they didn't weren't removed and boxed up, there's be nothing special about the decorations going up in the first place.
