Traditional "tear down" of Xmas decorations arrives the weekend after New Years Holiday. Today was an easy inside decision with pouring rain and foggy weather outside (outdoor decoration teardown deferred for now). With help from Ellen (Jenna was absent this year working), the task was complete in 4 hours.
Think of the manpower of both putting up and tearing down Holiday decorations in the US only. It would be in millions of person days. Try to estimate just the home decoration effort - 100 million households and assume only 30% spend the time and effort of only 2-4 hours to decorate and put away. That would be over 10 million person days. All for one day of celebration.
Wow - what effort for a birthday party for a King.
