Among other pet peeves specific to the holidays, one thing that’s gets to me is seeing decorations and stuff up past New Year’s. Christmas trees. Multi-colored lights. Reindeers. It’s over. Take half a day and pack that shit up!
It goes hand in hand with Christmas music past December 25th. Kinda pointless.
We had no tree this year. But next year I want to get one that I can replant in the backyard. It’s like “re-homing” the tree, to use dog rescue speak. Knowing nothing about how to do this or the meaning of words like “root mass,” “girdling” or “sapling,” it can’t be that difficult…
I like this link, mostly for the super helpful drawings. I like how it says “it is important to plant your tree as soon as possible after the holidays. Do not wait until spring.” Like, duh.
