January 1st has come and gone, and while I know it's time to take down the tree, decorations and lights, and file away the cards cheerfully adorning my fridge, I'm dragging my feet.I've always hated this part. It's chilly and gray outside and I'm not quite ready to let go of the things that make it feel so cheery and cozy inside. But I know I need to cave before I become the Christmas-lights-in-July neighbor that everyone dreads.
How do you deal with the post-Christmas blues? Do you look forward to the clean slate, or do find yourself wanting to hang on past the holidays?
