The Nightmare Before Christmas

Record collector in front of his collection

So, this is Christmas. And what have you done? Probably nothing, at least since last year. After the presents were opened, the carols were sung, and the stockings were hung (by the chimney with care), Saint Nicholas certainly was there but he ducked out before it was time to clean up.

We don’t blame him, tbh. Cleaning up all of the wrapping, the tinsel and the trimmings from the Roast Beast is never an easy task. And the ornaments! Is there anything more depressing in the entire year (other than the year 2020, because everything is depressing in the year 2020) than taking down the ornaments from the now useless Christmas tree?

The answer is no, there is not.

Still, we have to do it (because society says we can’t keep Christmas lights up all year…we know, we hate that societal norm too), even if we don’t like it. The result is a hodgepodge of ornaments, lights, candy canes, and depression – all strewn together and thrown in a box until next year. We don’t think too much about the Ghost of Christmas Future because, presently, we just want to get rid of the stuff.

But the future always arrives with the Ghost of Christmas Past in tow, ready to haunt us by reminding us of the mess we left behind last year.

On the day after Thanksgiving, we wander around our house seeking out the various items we discarded the year previous. We check closets, attics, under beds and up on housetops (click click click), trying to track down all of our Christmas accoutrements.

It’s a struggle. It’s a headache. It’s a reason to dip into the eggnog a little bit early and we’re tired of it. So, too, should you be. There has to be a better way that doesn’t involve spending the 12 Days of Christmas unraveling strands of lights.

If only…
If only there was a place that we could put all of our Christmas decorations. If only there was a one-stop shop for all things Christmas – a place to store the tree, the ornaments, the light up Santa…all of it. If only.

Well, boys and girls, Christmas has come early this year because you can now build your very own North Pole, right here in Casper, at K&L Storage.

With over 800 units in 4 different locations, K&L Storage is Casper’s largest storage service. Our units vary in size, and are able to house every ox, lamb, and Little Drummer Boys that your Nativity scene consists of. There’s room for the tree, for the reindeer, and for the life-size Frosty. There’s even room to store the presents that you didn’t necessarily want but are too scared to throw away because you never know when Grandma Zora will be back in town, expecting you to wear the sweater she knitted for you.

Our units offer 24/7 surveillance and security, meaning nobody will be trying to steal your Santa hat during the off season. We offer month-to-month rentals and give you a personalized security code, meaning you can get in and out whenever you need.

Speaking of that, here’s a Christmas life hack. If 2021 is anything like the previous year, you’re probably going to need something to cheer you up. So if you decide to actually decorate your storage unit as a little mini-Christmas village, nobody will blame you. Now you have a place to escape when the pressures of the world become too much, and you just need a brief reprieve. We don’t recommend living in one of our units, but you can certainly spend an hour or two once in a while sitting by your tree and reading The Night Before Christmas.

If you don’t want your decorating to resemble The Nightmare Before Christmas, then do future you a favor- visit and reserve your unit. You’ll thank us, and yourself, next Christmas.
