Boo hoo hoo, we took all the Christmas decorations down yesterday. Our tree was dead as a door nail, the last 2 days we did not even turn on the lights for fear of a fire. Everytime something touched it, it lost a bunch of needles and John would announce, Gigi, you need to vacuum! There was a fire in Miami and the fireman said the lights don't have to be faulty to cause a fire. So. we usually wait till New Years, but given it was the weekend and we had the time, we just did it.
