Under the odd but true category,
What’s unique about you?
I had every intention of taking down my
Christmas tree before Easter …
I really did!
it’s still up …
Yup, up and lit.
And, yes, I know it’s weird.
I’m always the last one on the block
to dismantle the tree,
but we had such a mild winter this year,
I just kept thinking that I would have more snowy landscapes to enjoy
from my front window as I sipped warm beverages,
listening to Christmas music in the glow of my Christmas tree.
December gave way to January, and I thought,
Whatever, just one more week and I’ll take it down.
But I never did take it down!
We laughed about
having it up on Valentine’s Day.
By St. Patrick’s Day,
I was used to it.
When the kid’s came over for Easter and said,
“Mom, the neighbors are going to think you’re nuts,”
I thought, It might be time,
but I was too busy breaking my
Lenten television fast to deal with it.
(Easter Sunday with Mr. 4-Ever)
So, here we are,
the week after Easter
and my tree is still up.
And you know what?
I’m owning it.
