You've been faithful keeping the tree hydrated, almost fanatical about it. Well, it's time to put away the watering jug and divert your attention to family and friends again before the season totally passes you by.
Why, you may ask? Remember last year! You were so worried about the tree drying out that you watered right up to the day before you were to take it down...what a mess that was.
If you were faithful in keeping the bowl filled you can stop now. When you start the take down of Christmas process, the bowl will be empty, allowing you to lay the tree on its side to remove the stand. This is so much easier than trying to lift it up out of the stand and dripping your way to the door.
