Now that Christmas is over it is time to start taking down decorations. However, the title of my post has a dual meaning.
Here we have decorations down which is a common view during the holiday season as yards are often full of decorations that are down for the day.
In the evening the displays are inflated and lit up, but in the morning you are met with decorations down.
My new neighbors had more decorations that would fit in their yard and asked if they could use part of my mine.
Of course I allowed them to extend their display and it looked very nice.
Actually only the snow man is on my yard. However, they also added some lights for an outline and also on my tree.
The display and lights kept me from doing yard work, but that was fine for me 🙂
Today they took all the decorations down. However, I have noticed that not very many displays have gone down so far in the neighborhood. Perhaps people want the festive atmosphere to last a little longer, or they know they will have plenty of time to take them down next week.
I will miss the snow man in my yard. It brought back memories of growing up with snow in the winter time.
However, since the display is now down I really need to go out and mow the yard. Perhaps that will be my task tomorrow.
