I guess it was Issac Newton who first said "What goes up must come down"!
Quite obviously -- he was talking about Christmas decorations!
In your own home, remember all the stuff we've put up all month long in December -- the Christmas tree, the fireplace mantle -- and lights all over the lawn?
Well, it's time to get rid of it!
No matter how dispiriting and depressing it might seem!
It's always so sad and creepy to see all those Christmas trees thrown out on the curb -- waiting for the garbage men to come by! Once so admired, full of lights and decorations, and now just tossed out there, like trash! Ha!
But get this: In this billionaire's house where I work, it takes the entire staff three full working days to take down all the decorations, indoors and out, in this 22,000 square/foot residence!
And what a mess! Getting everything put back into the right boxes, headed for the attic. Bringing in a truck (with a bucket lift) to get all the lights out of the trees, and the lighted wreathes on the third-floor windows. And from experience, it will take until Easter to get all the glitter vacuumed out of the carpets!
The Mister and Missus have gone away -- as they always do immediately after Christmas -- not wanting to be annoyed with any of this disruption. So at least we have some tranquility to disassemble all the trappings. (And not have to put up with all their nutty nonsense for a few days!)
I hope your Christmas take-down isn't too dreadful! (It's just that all the decorations are so full of past and newly-created memories, aren't they?)
Thanks for reading tonight!
