Christmas In July

I found them, unused and half-forgotten, towards the bottom of a ludicrously tall basket. They were under and between layers of heavy and oddly shaped item---a dangerous parfait for such a fragile ingredient. For more than a moment, I considered taking them home. No...perhaps someone else in the family might want them. If not, they will go off to be discovered, adopted and treasured by someone else. This is the dilemma faced by those who are tasked with clearing out a home that is no longer the family home.
