Is your Christmas tree still up? Mine is-actually all 3 of ours are still up. At least I think they are-me and the girls have hightailed it to the big mountains of NC for a few days-but when we left the holler all the trees were still up-and I doubt The Deer Hunter and Ruby Sue have touched them in our absence.
I take lots of photos during Christmas. The one above is my favorite from this year. About 2 weeks before Christmas-a Dear Lady passing away at the age of 100 led us to the Blueridge guitar in a round about way-the rambling story doesn’t really matter. What does matter is Chatter now has a fine guitar to play. She’s proved she’s worth the investment of a real instrument by playing the hand me down-been broke in 2 pieces and glued back together-Fender she’s used for the last 2 years.
Now back to your Christmas tree-Frank C. Brown says this:
- take Christmas decorations down before the month is out or misfourtune will come to the house
- never leave the Christmas tree up over New Years or it will bring bad luck
- it is bad luck to take Christmas decorations down before Old Christmas (Jan 6) or to leave them up afterwards
- Christmas decorations left hanging after 12th night (old Christmas) bring bad luck
