On the Fourth Day of Christmas

By Tim Butler | Posted at 11:52

I've often wondered something: many of our “Christmas decorations” these days are snowmen and snowflakes, so why do we take those down now — just days after the start of winter — and leave the nights so dark? For that matter, this is only the fourth day of Christmas. If you've been already contemplating taking down your decorations in general, why not pause for a few days and actually enjoy them as we bask in the glow of what we have just been celebrating?

A few years ago, I wrote a post questioning why people take down their Christmas decorations so quickly and as I already see the holiday festivities winding down, I again find myself wondering why more people don't observe the Twelve Days of Christmas. I'm not sure about you, but usually the lead up to Christmas is so hectic I find its hard to really stop, reflect and enjoy. Instead of going and grabbing the boxes to put decorations away this weekend, why not sit by the tree, with the lights glowing beautifully, and spend some time in awe at the Light that came into the world the first Christmas morning?

We remove only the stuff that's in the way of regular activities. Everything else stays up until at least New Years Day. Non-specific wintery stuff I tend to leave up all winter.

Interesting data. Each region a-writer.org has its own micro climate data. Average sold price are often higher than median due to high end homes ignored with median price.
