We may have been the last ponies in Ponyville to take down our Hearth's Warming decorations. Oh, there are several ice sculptures and a few snow ponies scattered about town, but the wreaths, festive lights and over-sized candy canes have been put away, except on the treecastle. Well, we didn't wait until spring, we got together and took it all down today.

Taking down those giant ribbons is easier than putting them up. They're pretty heavy but Dash and I managed to unfasten them and lift them one at a time off the building and then slowly lower them while Rarity rolled them back into bolts for storage. We may have to wash them as well next year. Applejack, Fluttershy and Pinkie took care of gathering the lights into big orderly loops, rounding up the star-shaped lamps and bringing the bolts and bows inside as we finished rolling and folding them. Spike showed them the way to the room where we store our Hearth's Warming decorations (the castle is a maze) and then went off to fix lunch. Starlight Glimmer kept an inventory of everything as it came in. We paused for lunch, then got back in the saddle, taking down the last of the lights and the big bow over the front door. By mid afternoon we had finished de-gift wrapping the castle. We collapsed on the mane balcony and Spike and Starlight brought us victory hot chocolates. Spring is only two weeks away. Applejack and Rainbow Dash trotted off to go speed skating while it was still light out.
