March of the Snow Men under way at the Birch Ridge Inn at Killington

It happens every year.

The Christmas Season officially comes to an end. The decorations, which Mary spends hours on each fall to perfect, get taken down, boxed for future use, and stored away. And this is the week.

When I woke up this morning, I heard a kerfuffle going on over my head. Mary was in the attic, sorting boxes to be used to store the holiday decorations currently distributed throughout the inn. Tens of boxes and storage tubs were being queued by the attic stairs to be brought down to the inn proper. The deconstruction of the Christmas Holidays had begun.

As the boxes were being hauled down stairs, it started. One by one, snow men started to appear intermixed with the empty boxes. Driven by some unseen force (Mary was up in the dark attic handing them down to our assistant Mickalyn) they started to make their way into the inn. Sometime by themselves... sometimes in pairs.... sometimes by the box full. The snowmen have arrived to take the place of Father Christmas around the inn.

This years 15 1/2 foot Christmas tree is going to take a few days to deconstruct. While that is being done, ever so slowly, the snowmen will take over. By the Martin Luther King Birthday Weekend (can you believe it is next weekend!), Christmas 2011 will be but a memory, and the snowmen will have completed their coup to claim hegemony as the decorating decor at the inn for the next few weeks. All we need now is for Mother Nature to dump some white stuff around the mountains of Killington, and the snowmen's take over of the resort will be complete....

Let it snow!!!
