  15. Christmas
    For 2008, I had to dig through several boxes to get the early-Christmas stuff out (Advent calendars, candles, etc.) As the season wore on, I had to dig through the same boxes for mid-season stuff such as Christmas wrap and party supplies. Finally, on Christmas Eve, I had to dig through those...
