3 Tips for Packing Away - by Trish Berg


Well, we have taken down the Christmas tree and packed away all the ornaments. The house seems a little bare, but life after Christmas goes on.

I have learned a few tips to keep the joy and decor of Christmas alive and well.

#1 Leave snowmen out - I have quite a few snowmen I decorate with over Christmas, and always leave them out through February. That way, the house is still decorated.

#2 Leave small trees out- I have 2 smaller pencil trees I leave out through February, and decorate with valentine's lights and ornaments. Keeps the lights going a little while longer.

#3 Keep giving - We tend to give so much at Christmas, and then we forget about giving to others and get on with our own busy lives. Take time to find several ways to give back as a family, to a soup kitchen, Goodwill or your church. Giving will make the spirit of Christmas decorate your life with love.

It is a really good idea to keep some decorations around the house when everything else is packed away. We leave strings of coloured lights in the hall, stairway and dining room so that we keep a little of the Christmas cheer until the dark winter evenings are finished.

Thanks for the cool tips on packing Christmas decorations away. You have helped my wife and I stay more stress free through the process, and given us ideas to decorate throughout the year. Keep it up. :)
