- Take advantage of the after-Christmas sales and stock up on essentials for next year. Organize and label before storing away.
- Plan an undecorate-the-tree party. Ask each friend to bring a dish to share, and enjoy a pot-luck dinner afterwards.
- Recycle your Christmas tree. Many communities now have curbside pickup.
- Don't throw away your Christmas cards this year. Put them in a basket. Each week, pick out a card and think of a way you can let this person know he or she is special -- write a letter, give a call, bake some cookies.
- Welcome in 2003!
