Prompt for Day 26:

Boxing Day.  What does this holiday even mean?  I think Harry Potter does it.  But how do we unwind after the holiday?

After Christmas I’m eager to take all the decorations down. It was fun while it lasted. But after Christmas, I’m eager to clean the slate, get a fresh start. And that involved clearing out the Christmas decor and getting my house back to normal.

Even as a kid, I found the holiday aftermath tough. So many built up expectations, a different schedule, fun activities, anticipated gifts. And then… It’s over.

That mix of wanting to savor and ready for it all to be over. That, for me, is the tough part of the holidays.
