… And the Christmas season is over, just like that. I forgot about my Christmas tree header on the blog here and am hoping that doesn’t count as having decorations up past New Year’s. My grandmother might roll over in her grave.

There’s something sad to me about Christmas decorations left up too long. It’s like hanging on to the past. Time to move on, move up, and keep going.

These photos of the Christmas lights in Gatlinburg symbolize that idea to me. They were done by Jeremy Cowart, a super-talented photographer who has done some work for Catalyst.
