  • I made an attempt to take the Christmas tree and decorations down a couple of weeks ago. Then we tried again last weekend. To make it a real fun event, we did the whole thing this friday, with dancing around the tree, singing and candy. My son still wouldn't accept it. I eventually had to sneak the stuff away. His sadness and unwillingness to let go of christmas stuck to me too. Now I can't wait until we can go get the box from the basement next christmas.
