3 Ways To Keep The Holiday Warmth During the New Year

I don’t know about you, but I find packing up all of the holiday decorations sad.  It is hard for me to let go of the happiness and warmth that comes along with Christmas decor.  I have come up with three simple ways to remedy this sadness by finding ways to keep the warmth of the holiday season to signify that winter is still here without any Santa, snowmen, or garland decorations looming after they’ve worn out their welcome.
