Beginning of Ordinary Time

Sharon and I spent Wednesday afternoon taking down and packing up the Easter decorations.

Over the last twenty-eight years, Sharon and I have lived into a rhythm of decorating the house. Beginning Labor Day, Sharon starts to decorate the house with fall decorations. Before Thanksgiving, we switch the house to Christmas decorations. About five years ago, we started decorating the house for Christmas before Thanksgiving rather the weekend after. It is nice not to have to spend the weekend after Thanksgiving decorating.

Sharon has started to accumulate more Valentines Day decorations that she puts up after we take down the Christmas decorations. After Valentines Day, the house transitions to Easter.

After we take the Easter decorations down, we have started calling it "Ordinary Time." This lasts about four months from Easter to Labor Day.

As a footnote, Sharon has started to collect a few summer decorations. It will be interesting to see if this takes on a life of its own...
