The holidays are over (sad face) and the new year has begun.  I've taken down the decorations, not to include the Christmas tree. I haven't brought myself to do it yet. Yes, I may be the crazy lady that has a Christmas tree in July. What can I say? I love it! In all reality, I will probably take it down in the next week. Everytime I think about taking down the tree, I think of my favorite character, Linus and his quote when asked about his blanket..."maybe I'll make it into a sport coat." What does that have to do with my tree? Hmmm? How to repurpose that tree and keep it all year? My husband suggested having a holiday tree and decorating it for Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Halloween, etc. My answer? A firm, "no!" It's a Christmas tree and that's what it will continue to be. I hate to see Easter eggs hanging from a tree. Wouldn't be prudent! And so, if you hear taps playing next week, it's my poor Christmas tree retiring to the attic for a long rest.
