Ahead of Schedule

We've gotten our Christmas decorations up the earliest that we have in years, doing so this past Sunday. Through Freecycle, we gave away our 6' artificial Christmas tree and acquired a 3' one instead. We also bought battery-operated window candles that flicker.

Contrast this to a few Christmases when we actually didn't bother pulling out the decorations at all. I think the fact that we're keeping our house much cleaner and better organized has something to do with it.

As usual, we'll keep our decorations up until Epiphany (January 6).

Good for you for keeping them up till Epiphany! The priest at my former parish in Baltimore kept them up until Candlemas, on Feb. 2. (I loved it--dh starts getting "antsy" around New Years.)
