And yes, our tree is still up. We always keep all of our decorations and lights up and lit through New Year's Day, which of course means they come down tomorrow.
Sad, but yes - that does insure that it stays special!

NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! *Mo throws a plaid hissy fit*

It's not "of course" anything. We must enlighten you to the 12 days of Christmas rule!!!!!!!!!!

It's still the Christmas season until the 3 wise men arrive on January 6th; the Feast of Epiphany. Everything must come down then or it's unlucky!!

But not before - please, not before - how are the wise men going to find their way if all the lights and stars are off the trees????

Ha HA - got you there!!!!!!!

morning all!

oh i was so hungover yestersday, never drinking again!

i went to my MIL's for dinner at about 7pm, it was delicious, we had chicken cooked with lemon and rosemary, pork cooked in orange and guinness (best pork i have ever tasted) roast potatoes cooked in goose fat, green beans, carrot and turnip, baked leeks, parsnips and lots of gravy. it was very, very nice and made me feel alot better!

today is a day for clearing up and getting "back to normal" i was feeling really down after 26th december, but i had such a good new year's eve that i feel great now. counting down until september, because that's when i feel 100% festive!

TGIF! Hope everyone has a great Friday...2nd day of the year. First weekend of the year coming up...long long long way to the season but the journey is now well under way.

Holidays are really over now...hmm that first milestone is just about 2 weeks away I see isn't it? Amazing...gotta love how the season count was rolling since Nov 13th and we never thought of it since we were enjoying last season!

Wow!
You guys are so into the spirit of this thread and what we are trying to accomplish.
And we are off to a fantastic start! If the current rate continues (I know it won't based on past years, but if it does) we will smash last year's rate by a wide margin!

Good Morning, Everybody!
I hope all hangovers are over, eyes have cleared and all is ship-shape because it's time to commence regular counting duties:
Days to the Season: 315
Days to Christmas Day:357.

And indeed - - - we will reach our first Season Milestone, the 300-Day window two weeks from tomorrow! Just let that sink in a bit,now.
(It's already later than you think!!)

Cold again here with cloudy skies. Showers are a possibility this afternoon.
We currently stand at 33 degrees.

Have a Fabulous Friday and I hope your first weekend of 2009 gets off to an incredible start this afternoon!
