It’s December, a month full of traditions and celebrations for many people. This week on the blog hop, Dani Jace asks:
How do you decorate for the holidays? Do you have a theme? Show a picture of your favorite decoration and tell the history if it was handed down to you or something you made.
I tease my husband about his Christmas decorating every year, but in truth I do love what he does. He has a bit of an obsession with Christmas lights. Not quite to the standard of the Griswold’s, but we’re getting close. 😊 Not only does he string lights outside, but inside the house we have them framing the windows, under the hearth, inside the fireplace, on the mantle, draped over bookcases, and twisted in the poinsettia branches. In the dark December evenings of Northern BC, it is cozy and welcoming to see them everywhere.
I don’t decorate to a theme, One thing I do do every year, though, is buy one decoration for each of our children as a stocking stuffer. When our daughters moved out of the house, I kept one from each of them as my own memento, and gave the rest to them. My son is less enthusiastic about the tradition, but someday he’ll appreciate the idea, I hope!
