Now that the holidays are almost over, the dreaded task of taking everything down is once again here.
I've searched the internet for some simple storage ideas from several websites. I hope they help make your task simpler.
In 1897 a little girl called Virginia O'Hanlon (1889–1971) who lived in New York City asked her father whether Santa Claus really existed because her friends had told her he didn't.
Virginia's father, Dr O’Hanlon, suggested she write to The Sun, a prominent New York City newspaper at the time because, he told her, 'If you see it in The Sun, it's so.'
The response, written by one of the paper's editors, Francis Pharcellus Church, struck an immediate chord with many readers, even though it wasn't published in a prominent part of the newspaper. Francis Church had been a war correspondent during the American Civil War, a period which saw great suffering and a corresponding lack of hope and faith throughout much of American society.
Perhaps it was his experiences during the war that led him to see an opportunity to address the philosophical issues underlying Virginia's simple letter.
Virginia O'Hanlon died in 1972 and her obituary was published in T…

As I opened up the beautifully boxed confectionery almonds I received from Les Cinq Amandes, the first thing I noticed was a slip of beautiful rice paper that told the story of how the name of the company came to be.
In the mid 17th century Europeans celebrating weddings would often offer their guests five confectionery almonds symbolizing wishes for health, happiness, wealth, longevity and fertility. Les Cinq Amandes, Home of Artisanal Dragees & Confectionery, is proud to continue this tradition, not only by offering the finest and most innovative hand-made dragees but also by renewing the set of 5 wishes to Health, Happiness, Longevity, Peace and of course Love.
I love that this tradition is being continued today. I find it to be both thoughtful and romantic.

Every Christmas season my family likes to take a ride to Pennsylvania Lehigh Valley Region. There is so much to do there during the holiday season.
Each year we visit the town of Bethlehem and Christkindlmarkt. There are many vendors from small businesses who sell handcrafted items. It is so pretty walking around and seeing all of the items. We also love watching the ice carver and his masterpieces.
This year I got to enjoy the Gingerbread house competition at the Artsquest Center. There were such beautiful houses on display.
The town of Bethlehem itself is quaint. The main attraction is the Hotel Bethlehem with its extravagant windows which are beautifully decorated with the most ornate Christmas trees.
At night we love to watch the Steel Stacks light display. Christmas music and beautiful lights create a wonderful atmosphere as we sit around the bonfire drinking hot cocoa.
