Why does Christmas have to go? You wait so long for it and then it disappears like yesterday's birthday cake.
Then when it gets to New Year's you have to take all the decorations down. It's really hard taking them down. You love them all but, then, the next thing you know, everything seems blank and empty.
Like our tree that we took the ornaments down from is complete empty now. All it is is a pine tree. But a real pine tree is more beautiful because God makes it and it has pine cones in it.
This is our poor tree. Look at it. It makes me want to cry.
But the good thing is--we get to bring it all out again next year.
