Tonight its Twelfth Night, when Christmas decorations must be taken down or risk a year of bad luck, the wrath of witches on the warpath etc etc.
My little tree has just been packed away for another year along (it is I'm afraid plastic) together with the tinsel and glass balls.
The management has made it clear that real trees must be put in a special place for disposal or else.
Alas the owner of the tree above did not follow instructions but let it loose in the icy waters of the Thames - not the right thing to do at all!
And they did this not just today and not just this weekend but actually just before Christmas! They must have been really scared of those old witches.
