Packing up the tree and a Recipe

 Have you also taken down your Christmas tree and packed the decorations away?  Monday, the 5th, was the twelve day of Christmas; and Tuesday, the 6th, the Epiphany. Depending on your beliefs, you’ve either taken it down, as I have, or perhaps you’re not ready to let go of the festive season, and still have a tree shining brightly in your living room? according to superstition, if you haven’t taken your tree and decorations down by the 7th, then they have to remain up for the rest of the year!

I made this for breakfast, as I was watching the lights twinkle for the last time. Until December, again,  that is.

  • 2 Tablespoons of fresh coconut flakes

  1. I never knew that about the drop dead date to drop kick the tree 😉 Currently, I have no room for a tree other than a little table top faker. As much as I love putting up decorations in the house, I can’t wait to put it all away, usually on the 1st or 2nd. Your recipe looks yummy!
