For those of you that know my wife, you know she spent many years in the real estate industry before going into the medical field. There were only a few things the she didn’t like in the real estate industry — like rude clients, teammates that didn’t work hard, and unrealistic people in regard to the value of their property. There is, however, one thing that still bothers her today that has to do with real estate, so would you like to know what it is?

You guessed it! She hates houses where Christmas decorations are left up all year long, and my trip to China in August reminded me of this. It seemed odd to see Christmas decorations out when it was over 90 degrees! You can see in the reflection in the photo above and on the right that I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt, so it was hot! This was not an isolated sighting, as I came across other violators of the good real estate habits!

Believe it or not, I wasn’t looking for these Christmas decorations, but I just kept coming across them time after time on this trip. My wife is far from a Scrooge, but she has taught me it is in poor taste to leave your Christmas decorations up all year long.

This was something that just caught my eye on this latest trip. I encourage you to travel when you can, and have your camera ready, because you never know what you may see!

Enjoy your travels!
