Today still counts as January 10,2014 since I haven't gone to bed yet :). "Afterglow" is my homage to the Christmas lights that longer long after the holiday. I personally love leaving the lights and tree up as long as possible. One year we kept the tree up and changed out the ornaments as the holidays changed(hearts, Valentines day ; clovers, St Patty's day ; eggs, Easter). But alas , my sweetie likes the tree up the day after Thanksgiving and down New Years Day. This year I feel bittersweet about the decorations. 2013 was a really hard year. Both my sweetie and myself find ourselves in pain. So the decorations stay up as I can't help him take them down. But I like them up. And he knows this....so maybe he hasn't taken them down because his enjoyment of them is stronger than his compulsion for order .....not such a bad thing :).
