I am about to make my umpteenth trip to the grocery and am not happy about it. Having gathered my shopping essentials — wallet, car keys, cell phone, a list in illegible handwriting, reading glasses and a small chip on my shoulder, I hear a soft voice ask, “Grandma, can I go with you?”

The crescendo of the Christmas season starts up in November, and for the most part, comes crashing to a halt on Dec. 26th. My late father-in-law refused to wait until December 26th for Christmas to be over. According to Mangas family lore, my father-in-law always had the family’s white-flocked artificial tree taken down and put away by Christmas afternoon. This is in direct juxtaposition to my side of the family. My two sisters and I begged our widowed mother to let us keep our real tree up as long as possible, and she always caved. It didn’t come down until the branches were brittle, pine needles littered the floor and it had morphed into a serious fire hazard. I think one year our tree was up until the end of January!
