There was an epiphany at my house today: the Epiphany has passed and our Christmas decorations are still up. So we finally started taking them down.
Fortunately for our neighbors we are not the sort who competes in the yard decoration contest (it is a contest, isn't it?) so they haven't been embarrassed by visitors asking why the guy next door still has giant inflatable secular seasonal characters on the front lawn.
As soon as I'm done with the decorations I'll start with the Christmas cards. Sending them, that is. Does anyone know when public school starts again?
