    Anything that sits in my home for more than 2 days gets the boot.

    Well, it gives the Palm suppliers something to do with their leftovers. (Aside–I should look back and see how much my little church paid for its palms–I remember thinking, as I wrote the check–that those things don’t come cheap.)

    My girlfriend tells me that, in her German-Irish Catholic tradition, her family was not to throw away the Palm Sunday palms, but to burn them.

    I told her that, in my Baptist tradition, we didn’t worry about such things.
