Some people might think I am crazy, but for most of the major holidays I change out all my regular decor and slip in all my holiday collectibles. For you, this may sound like an awful amount of work, but for me it is how I express myself and how I like to make others enjoy the season to the fullest. When you walk into my living room, there will be no question that it is Christmas. I also am a traditionalist. No turquoise or lime green balls. No black or mauve garlands. Just Red and Green and lots of it. I use the same decor each year, and when I open those boxes, it is like greeting friends that I haven't seen in awhile. On our Christmas tree, will be approx 300 ornies saved over many many years and I swear each one tells a story. This Saturday my girls will gather at my house for a dessert buffet and we will trim the tree. There will be lots of laughter, reminiscing, eating and when the party is thru, I will have the most beautiful tree in the world! And for one month, my home will be the epitome of Santa Land and I will love it!
