I put it up sometimes before Christmas and always take it down after New Years day.

My mom loves White Christmas too. It always makes me think of her.

I also don't like Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer either. I used to think it was funny when I was a kid and now it's just annoying. Although, thankfully I haven't heard it this year yet.

Hi Valerie! I just did my post for the SSS and wanted to personally say thank you so much for a great surprise! That book has been on my Amazon wish list for a couple of months now and the bookmark ROCKS! LOL! My girls fought over who got to hang the snowflakes ornament on our tree, so you definitely hit a home run. Thanks again for being a great partner and have a very Merry Christmas! (oh, and I'm going to do this meme probably on Thursday this week)
