December 22...Deliver boxed sweets. (I guess sweeping the pine needles won't take that long! But where and to whom I am supposed to deliver the boxed sweets? A little help!)
December 23...Choose linens, dishes, and glassware for the holiday table. (Let's see...I choose the only linens, dishes, and glassware we own!)
December 27...Organize paperwork; store instructions, warranties, and receipts from gifts in one place. (By now I've usually thrown all of that stuff out!)

December 29...Bring firewood indoors. (And then do what with it!?)
December 31...Celebrate! (By canceling our subscription!)
