Decorations Down

Now that Christmas is over it is time to start taking down decorations. However, the title of my post has a dual meaning.

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.

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.

However, since the display is now down I really need to go out and mow the yard. Perhaps that will be my task tomorrow.
