We didn't put up a tree at the house this year because we have a new kitten who thinks fake fir and decorations are toys. I actually tried putting up the tree in my man cave, but Josie got into it and tore the bottom apart, so the tree is ingloriously laying in pieces in another room.
|Christmas + lights = cat toys.
I like the Christmas lights. Washington Park is beautiful and The District even put lights up around the top of our historic Fifth and Maine building. But Christmas is over. How long until the lights come down?
Christmas technically lasts until the Epiphany, which is Friday. So leave 'em up for another few days, get over the sadness of a season's end, and get ready for Super Bowl Sunday, Valentine's Day and all the other events coming up.
Just make sure your Christmas stuff doesn't collect spiders until you put them up again.
