I am really fortunate because, when I get invited to a loved one's house for roasted turkey dinner, I usually leave with whatever remains of the carcass.
I don't actually ask for the carcass. But I guess I have a reputation as a 'carcass remover', so there it goes.
When asked if I want to take the carcass home, I usually say, "...no, I shouldn't take that turkey carcass home with me. I am sure you can use it yourself...". And I am quite genuine when I say that, not a bit of feigning involved.
Not one decoration comes down until after Old Christmas Day. Not one!
But I must admit, my heart is not into it so much anymore. Kinda like the rest of the world, I think.
It is a bit of a mystery though- we are pretty eager to tack 6 weeks onto the front end of the Christmas Season but pretty darn reluctant to end it on the final day, let alone tack a day or so on the rear end of it.
