Christmas passed

I have been reading my regular blogs today, and I couldn't help but notice that many of you are already putting away your beautiful Christmas decorations. I am beginning to think that my resistance to pack up the holiday spirit may be a bit abnormal. I don't have ANY intentions of taking down my Christmas tree yet! I Just said to monkey the other night after getting a deep pine-scented breath that I was going to be very disappointed when the tree was finally past it's prime. I absolutely ADORE the smell of my live tree. There is just no replacement for the warm homey feeling it gives us. We usually try to take the decorations on the outside of the house around new years, but we don't really have a set date. We get to it when we get to it really, but I have to know, how long do you leave up your decorations? How long is too long in your eyes?

I leave my Christmas decorations up until mid-January (sometimes it's even stretched into late January). It's hard for me to let go of the beauty and magic.
