Where I work, our helpdesk/support software's auto-response system includes a message that asks people for the logs our software generates. If they don't include them, odds are we'll be asking for them before we close a case, unless it's for something trivial we've seen time and again.
Today is Twelfth Night - so the Christmas decorations come down today (and Herself will start complaining how bare the house looks).
And Dij the Cat has decided that he doesn't want to go out today ... I don't need a furry assistant, it'll just make putting them up next year a load harder, so I'll have to postpone that job for a while.
But it got me thinking. What kind of "undecorator" are you? I know people who pull 'em down, stuff 'em in a box, and either have a Gordian Knot to unravel next December, or who look at the Knot and buy all new every year. But me, I take 'em down carefully, wind strings of beads, card holders, lights, ... carefully onto tubes so I can undo them easily next year.
So what's your approach? "I'll deal with it next time" or "Plan ahead"?

I'm married but the wife doesn't care dusting year old useless junk every year, so we don't have any.
If anyone cares to get into christmas mood, five minutes outside give us enough christmas lights to last for another year.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
That is a job for Herself, I am allowed to get the tree and plant it in a bucket and am then excluded from the process thank Ghu. I expect this to be the last tree we get, the lights did not even get turned on this year.

Last year we had a friend who was in hospital over Xmas so we delayed putting everything away until he was better and could come over and have a Xmas with us (just a bit late). With his new job and stress at home he finally came over for Xmas in August! We actually still had the tree up - although we had turned off the lights until he came over.
That was the weirdest Xmas we had had until this year. The whole family got some sort of stomach flu and spent the entire two weeks vacation either in bed or in the bathroom. No tree, no other decorations, no Xmas dinner, no nothing! Got better on Saturday, Rested Sunday and back to work early this morning. Bah! Humbug! Oh, and we felt well enough in the middle of it to go out to eat - my wife ended up in hospital with food poisoning! What fun we had!
