Angel is Down

There was a question posed on one of my social media groups: When do you take down your Christmas decorations?

Normally, we take our stuff down on the weekend following January 6th, or as Catholics call it Epiphany. Most folks know of it as the 12 days of Christmas when the wise men/3 kings arrived and acknowledged Jesus as God made human.

Sadly, this year is not like most years. Our new kitten Zim-zilla has been killing my Christmas decorations in scenes reminiscent of a horror movie-one at a time.

And worse still, our Christmas tree didn’t make it 3 weeks, but wilted and dropped handfuls of needles before Christmas. So, the tree joined a small forest of others at a city park and will soon be wood chips and mulch. It’s a circle of life thing.

My surviving decorations and house lights will remain up until next weekend. As the old Johnny Mathis song goes, I need a little Christmas now.

Until next time, stay healthy.

  2. Today is the Epiphany, the day I take down my tree, too. Old Catholic traditions die hard. 🙂
