Yes, just 18 days .... and we are going to look like the Grinch family on our street. I sold all our Christmas stuff last Friday - tree, stand, storage bag, indoor & outdoor lights, tree ornaments (kept just a few special ones), two wreaths made by me, table decorations, wrapping paper - everything. The great thing is that it all went to a young family - I hope they have fun going through everything. It is nice to think our memories will merge with their memories over the years. That's what Christmas is all about - memories.
And we get to look forward to creating new Christmas memories in Costa Rica.
