There’s a woman who stopped undressing her Christmas tree.
After Christmas every year, she sticks the tree –fully dressed with all its ornaments– into a large cupboard.
It comes out again next December.
If you have an artificial tree, AND a very large closet, you may like her idea.
But it’s not an option for many of us.
So all the lovely ornaments will have to come off the tree.
One by one.
The old ones.
The avian ones.
The colourful ones.
Ones that hold special meaning.
All carefully packed in boxes till next year.
A decorated Christmas tree is a beautiful thing. A pity about the undressing….
