Around my home, today is the dat to put up the Christmas lights. Always a lot of work, but pretty when finished. Since we have family and friends out of state, it’s also the day to get the wrapping and boxing of their gifts ready to go to the post Office tomorrow. So there is wrapping paper, boxes, tape, scissors and all the usual accompaniments scattered about. The cats are happy, but we will be glad when the chaos is lessened.
Then there will be the inside decorating, with tree, mantle, rest of the house. Plus the Christmas cards are still to be mailed out. Yikes.
