Need Help! Wreaths Everywhere!

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Need Help! Wreaths Everywhere!

Post by UncleBob » Mon Sep 17, 2018 9:30 am

Mrs. UB has started making holiday wreaths. Fall wreaths, Halloween wreaths, Thanksgiving wreaths, and surely Christmas wreaths are to come. Now The Girl has started making them.

God help me I only have so many doors and walls!

I need a strategy. Any ideas?

Too reasonable. I need options, man!

Plus, I would have to meet my neighbors. (Shudder)

Rita has the wreath gene. Off-season wreath storage is an even bigger pain than in-season display.

I like to add random objects to them and see how long it takes her to notice (and explode). Good clean fun.

LOL!

I may have to do that. That is the kind of thinkin' I'm looking for, here.

On a serious note, does she ever rework them for next year or do they just live in the garage until you can sneak them off to the dump?

When we packed our belongings in the home we'd lived in for 25 years I counted 11 (ELEVEN!) wreaths hanging from hooks in the basement. By my reckoning every house should have 3 wreaths, max.

1. A fall wreath to hang on the front door from October through November. No ghosts or witches because then it can't stay up 'till Thanksgiving. Burlap and bandanas are not allowed.

2. A winter wreath to hang on the front door. It goes up when the fall wreath comes down and may be displayed through the end of December.

3. A winter wreath to hang someplace inside the house.

No Valentine wreaths. No Easter wreaths. No Fourth of July wreaths. No wreaths with yuge glittery red bows. If the wind blows it down it's out of play until next wreath season.

I suggest you introduce these completely reasonable rules as soon as possible or this thing will get out of hand. I waited too long and this wreath madness infected my three daughters before I realized what was going on. Nip it.
