Its always sad when the season ends but keep it in your heart all year long and the next one will be around before you know it.

Around September I start to get really excited again and thats only 7 months away

Oh man...you really got bombarded this year, didn't you?
Well, I'll echo what others on this board have often said...start planning for 2013.
That's what most of us do around here when we feel low...we talk and plan and before you know it- the season is upon us again. I wish we didn't have to grow older to enjoy another Christmas, but hey, that's life!
Leave your decorations up if it brings you joy...you'll know when you're ready to take them down.

Such wise Advice Momnan...That is exactly what I did this year. I took down the tree last weekend but my Santas are still on the mantle and my nativity scene is still up......I may get around to them this weekend or maybe not !! xo
