I must admit I can see the appeal as you just want to get back to normal and everything does look very clean and spacious afterwards. I grew up to leaving them up till the New Year in fact the very last day, which I think is twelve days after Christmas. That does not appear to be the case anymore, why is this? Maybe because the days return to normal between Xmas and New Year now with people going to work and everything being open.
Are we constantly in a rush to get to the next event, I have seen Easter eggs for sale already and some advertisements for valentine Day meals. Maybe we should just stop and enjoy the moment instead of wishing our life away.
