I finally got around to cleaning up Christmas today... It is quite a chore! In many ways it is harder than putting it all up because there is no holiday excitement to motivate you when you take it all down. I guess that is why it took me so long to get it down this year.
Every year I am amazed at many fake pine needles make their way to the floor. This was the pile I swept up. I wonder how many more years my tree can actually have when it has lost this much every year since I bought it 8 years ago... Crazy thing is the tree still looks great!
