Don’t toss that Christmas tree — recycle it

I would stretch out the Christmas season as long as possible if I could. Instead of the "Twelve Days of Christmas," I would opt for the "Twelve Months of Christmas!" I love the lights, the decorations, the music and the wonderful feelings of cheerfulness at Christmas. People are nicer and friendlier during the holidays. I do get a little sad when I have to take the decorations down. But when it is time to do so, it means that it is also time for Bring One for the Chipper!

We used daddy's good plow lines for jumping rope and they also were paint-free.
