It's Twelfth Night, the last night of the Christmas season. Traditionally, it's time to take down all the Christmas decorations, and some believe it's bad luck to keep them up past Epiphany, January 6. I find the threat of bad luck motivates me to get everything put away, the tree out of the house and the wreaths off the doors. Not that I really believe it, but why take a chance? Otherwise, ours would probably be one of those sad houses with browning Christmas greenery hanging limply on the windows and doors on Valentines day.
Anyway, it's all down, put away, or in a pile to go to the brush dump tomorrow. And I'm ready to tackle the first big project, my closet.
