I have such mixed feelings at de-Christmas time. I feel that once New Year has arrived that the Christmas decorations look a bit out of place, however, I really miss the fairy lights and colourful accessories once they are gone.
As for cards, they are recycled into the neice' craft box, to make place cards, gift tags and other craft-y things next year.
My message is: "Did the wish come true and everybody has agreed not to buy presents this year?".
(For the record, I do like giving presents but it just seems a bit like going through the motions at Christmas. It all seems a bit diluted, particularly if there are multiple people opening multiple presents - no one really seems to say thank you 'properly'. Sorry to sound grumpy.)
