It seems to me that there are two main views about the week between Christmas and the New Year. One that moves to take the tree down, put the presents away and get back to normal life on December 26, and the other that continues with the Christmas celebrations. We are proud members of the second group here! (Not that I have anything against the first group; to each their own!)
With our immediate family currently residing in four different states, we rarely spend the actual holiday under one roof, but do manage to gather during the week after the holiday. With the mister confined to the house, we are hosting this year. We have a houseful of family, and it's so very fun and festive!
I've learned recently that in some other countries the day after Christmas is also considered a holiday. I love that; I wish we did it here in the states! Luckily, the company that the mister works for shuts down this week every year, so it is our annual built in vacation.
Once it quiets down around here I will be working on my resolutions for the new year, as well as implementing some plans and changes I've been working on for a while now. Exciting stuff! But I am in no real hurry; the time will pass all to quickly.
How do you spend the time between Christmas and New Year's? I would love to hear!
