When to take christmas stuff down
« on: December 27, 2005, 02:18:02 pm »
I always did wonder; you're supposed to put christmas decorations up 12 days before christmas, but when are you supposed to take them down? I mean how am I supposed to know when to change my avatar back to normal, do I change it when everyone else does? When does everyone change their avatars? When does everyone else take their christmas decorations down? ;x

Woooh.. Too much caffeine, Too much lack of sleep. Too many questions. Too hurty head. I'm going to die now - i'll read replies when I recover :-\

My parents, being their usual religious selves, take them down on 12th? January, whenever that damned Epiphany thing is.  As for Avatars, well, I had a Santa Sock for more than a year. Go fig.

Yeah. Around here kids disguised as the three kings or magi or whatever sneak around and collect money on that day.

Counterfeit notes and casino chips. 9 out of 10 children don't know the difference.

Might be funny though... I'd laugh at least.
