When do "the holidays" end for you?
I tend to think that they are all over except for the credit card bill by Jan. 2.
I'm still hearing lots of seasonal good wishes, which is nice, but also heard Christmas music in a store today
For some it is when the kids go back to school - still a few days away.
For others, it is when that last bit of Christmas baking is no more.
I know some people who leave all of their decorations up and outdoor lights on until the end of January, which seems a little long to me. On the other hand, a large outdoor Christmas tree nearby didn't have its lights on for New Years' Eve.
Of course, depending on your culture the holidays aren't just about Dec. 25th and Jan. 1st.
Big business seems to corral us into a earlier and earlier start to the shopping orgy every year, but at least we can come down from it all without too much of their manipulation.
