No I didnt put mine up this year...I did put all the other decorations up, but since it was going to be quiet and small, we decieded not to put it up. But I still have a few decorations left here and there that Wally insisted I leave up for our grandaughter......at this point she has not even noticed


gotta run....gonna go see us some fishes and whales today

I finally took my tree down last Friday because otherwise I would have missed the garbage truck for a week!

We took ours down yesterday. We always try and leave everything up for January 6th. Not sure how much we will decorate next year as we will be gone from Thanksgiving until the 15th..not sure how much energy I will have.

We always use lanyards on the ship - I prefer them to wristbands. We have done shirts but that only works on the embarkation day (or the day we choose to wear them) where a lanyard works all cruise in identifying people. Just my thoughts.

Thanks for asking. Yes we are fine where we are but we do desperately need rain.

Yes... (Hangs my head in shame...) but it's I decorated, both of them if that counts for something

What's significant about January 6th if I can ask?

We only wore our cruise shirts on the first day but our lanyards every day because of our room key thing and I had my camera attached so it was always with me.

Should we vote? It doesn't matter either way to me. We could do both a shirt and lanyard.

For us it really doesn't matter. Tee shirts are good, but would probably only wear it on the first day and neither of us use the lanyards. We just threw out a bunch from previous cruises before we moved.

So we will bow out of the voting and go along with what ever the group decides.

January 6 is Epiphany, or 12th Night, the 12th Day of Christmas. It is the day that the Wise Men are said to have arrived at Bethlehem. In Italy, that's when La Bafana travels looking for the babe, and leaves small gifts for all the children because she can't find the babe.
We sometimes leave it up, but Sulley has limited patience with having all the stuff around!

I think the first thing we need to do is get our name and graphic set.

We can do both shirts and lanyards too.

The thing with shirts we've always done is everyone makes their own and wore them on embarkation day for the group gathering. We found lots of our group in the terminal and had lots of fun there!
