Maybe Next They Will Build An Ark?

Their Christmas Tree is still up.

So much for the excuse that they might be celebrating The Epiphany.

Thirty days people. Thirty. Days. It's time to let Christmas go.

I'm not sure if I'm finding the fact that they still have it up OR the fact that it's obviously causing you to obsess about it more funny. I'll let you know if I come to a conclusion. ;)

Maybe they're waiting for the Chinese New Year?

I wish our New Year was in February or March, to break up the long major holiday drought.

They're not laying dead in there are they? You can't smell anything weird can ya? Maybe they are just doing it as a social experiment? To see just who will leave a note on the door explaining the faux pas.

Um yes. Time to take it down.

And I thought it was only okay 12 days after.

Man, that woman on American Idol was something else. At least we can say she wasn't from Seattle. I think she was from Houston.

You will be THRILLED to know I did get my Christmas stuff put away last weekend. :) YOU may have had something to do with it...

I DO agree that emotions and physical ailments can be linked. Totally. Feel better soon.

Phew! That is some good procrastination right there!

you MUST take a photo. If for no other reason than to imagine you in the bushes doing so!!

But what if on Christmas Eve, the dad went into the hospital for a heart attack or stroke or something and they are waiting for him to get out because they couldn't deal with Christmas.

I think you should bake them some cookies.

Two words... Justifiable + Homicide.

Just a thought.

Hope it's a fake tree. Otherwise, that's one crispy fir!

laurie said...

Ok, that is just weird. Do not these people know of the fire hazards? the possible dust mites? the trailerparkedness of it all?

BTW, this is one of the best arguments I have heard yet for becoming OCD. I may have to wash my hands eleventy two times a day, but hey. My tree was gone on January 2.

I have a neighbor with the same problem. I never cared until I read your post. Now I'm obsessing. We should form a sting or something.

I once left my tree in my living room well into February (once!!)...Of course, I kept it hidden from the view of the neighbors. Wouldn't want to drive anyone to obsession! :)

Bre said...

It must be a fake-y one then. Which doesn't make things better, but just lets me not freak out about all the pine needles on the (surely lovely) carpet.

knock on their door, it might be time for an intervention
