I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day

… because, as good dads everywhere can attest, it’s a pain to have to dismantle all the mantling you’ve been managing in bits and pieces over the last few weeks.

A few nights ago, we had our own Epiphany: why not call on the old Norse customs?

In Norway and Sweden, Little Christmas Day refers to 13 January, twenty days after Christmas, and is regarded as the day when ornaments must be removed from Christmas trees and any leftover food must be eaten.

We proud Vikings will have none of this nonsense about having decorations packed away by January 6. As the song goes; later on we’ll conspire.
