I love Christmas and no matter how weary I get with working in retail during the holiday, I'm always a little sad when it's over. There is so much time and energy spent on the day and then it races past like a locomotive. The good thing is, it will come back, a whole year, but it will return.
Still, I miss it, maybe that;s why I don't mind when friends and I exchange gifts late, or Dad and I wait a bit to take down the tree. I like to make it last, to enjoy it to the last possible second before saying goodbye.
