I wish it was socially acceptable to leave the Christmas tree up year round. I love the warmth of the lights and the glimmering of the ornaments. It makes my mind feel good to glance at it as I vacuum the carpet and fold clothes.
McGee will miss it, too. His long body often found its way beneath the lowest branches despite my pleas for him to find a more suitable napping spot. If I put the tree away now he will be forced to sleep in his second favorite spot–Kait’s pillow–and put up with her pleas for him to find a more suitable napping spot.
Maybe I should leave the tree and decorate it for Valentine’s Day, Easter, the Fourth of July… I’m sure I’m not the only one contemplating the goodness of having a Cinco de Mayo tree.
What do you say?
