I've discussed, in the past, Momma's distaste for excessive holiday decoration and hoop-lah. In general it was the unpacking and packing away of the decorations, and the cleaning up after the large parties and gatherings, she didn't care for. She loved the attention of the festivities, while they were taking place. As an adult, now with my own home and family, I can see through Momma's colored glasses a little better. Sure, there's that third week in January where you seriously wonder if you can somehow transition the Christmas tree into a 'year-round celebration' shrub, for the sake of not wanting to disassemble it. And there's always that dull ache as you toss your meticulously carved pumpkin, sunken and moldy, into the dumpster. The holidays are a lot of work; but that's what makes them so magical.
