Last day of the liturgical Christmas season

We undecorated today. The tree, the creche and all the decorations in between, all but one are put away. What remains is the leg. And on that, the question was posed, "Is it your intention to leave that in the front window?" Do I have to answer now? was my answer.

The leg will stay put for a few days and then it will be retired until next year. So with the living room cleared we sat down for a rip roaring game of Monopoly "The Christmas Story" style. The leg lamp illuminated our play as we urged each other through Triple Dog Dares. I was lucky enough to purchase a bb gun, but missed out on the Major Award -- the Leg Lamp itself. Still a good time was had by all, on this last snowy day of Christmas.
