Christmas Blues

I realized many years ago that I could not survive with just one or two weeks a year of Christmas in my life. I am 65 years old, and about 25 years ago I decided to leave my home fully decorated year round. I have twelve fully decorated & lit Christmas trees (for the 12 days of Christmas of course) throughout my home. Also have a collection of over 3,000 St.Nicholas/Santas which are in every room, corner,nook, bookcase, shelve, etc. I listen to Christmas music 365 days a year, and I share Christmas Spirit 24/7, 365 days a year. It is totally awesome! My family and friends know that they can come to my home in the middle of the dog days of summer and have a Christmas Dinner. I also keep a year round supply of snow balls in my deep freezer which I save and cherish all winter long. Nothing like a snow ball fight in the middle of July. I know it is overkill for me, but try keeping just one room decorated to avoid those Christmas blues. Good luck!
