I’m one of those people who looks forward to the holiday season year-long. And, once Christmas comes, I have typically left the Christmas tree up until late February or even mid-March. This year, it went away by three-kings day. And, I don’t know why.
It could certainly be because it’s a small tree in a small space. And, as most people know, space is a premium in New York City. Or, it could be that the holiday season seemed to have been really long, and the new year just came storming in. We have to hit the ground running to make this year more meaningful than the last.
Hence, all remnants of the prior year- including a Christmas tree- must be put away. It is a bit sad. There is also a bit of mystery. I can’t imagine what this new year will bring. Bit, we’re waiting for it with baited breath.
