Quick entry

It's January 5th and there's still no snow in Chicago and it was in the upper 40's. Awesome. It was so nice today that I was able to go hit more balls at the driving range as I try to get my new swing in order. Each trip out, I hit a few more good shots, but the majority are still bad shots or at least not what I intended to do. A work in progress without a doubt.

Future Headline: Dow crosses 13,000 for first time since January 2008. Is the market overbought??

How long are you keeping up your Christmas tree? Some people have already taken theirs down and seem proud of it. Those are the same people who put it up the day after Thanksgiving. We're keeping ours up until this weekend at least. My church believes they should stay up until January 6th, which is Three Kings Day or the Epiphany, though it will be celebrated the next Sunday which is the 8th. This weekend will be fine though.

Temps were the same here too. The snow we got on New Year's Eve partially melted away and what didn't will go in the next few days. I'm not complaining, but this is strange!

My tree is still up. I meant to take it down on Monday but had unexpected stuff to deal with. I'll take it down tomorrow, but I'm always a little sad to see it go.

Your church is correct: January 6 follows the 12th night of Christmas, which falls on January 5. The tree should stay up through the 12th night.

Down. The Wife on New Year's Day was the avenger of return the house to it's non-holiday state.
