Decking the Halls by Kristin Wallace

Are your holiday decorations up yet? Are you one of those people who puts up a tree and lights right after Halloween? I don't know why, but just pulling everything out of the storage boxes is enough to warm your heart. Every piece evokes memories of your childhood or when your kids were little. They might make you think of your parents or grandparents. 

We all have traditional decorations that must be set out every year. I now have two places to apartment and my parents' house. My parents have all the ornaments and decorations that I grew up with. We collect the Hallmark dated ornaments, which started waaaaay back in 1976. 

As you can imagine there are quite a lot of them at this point. There are also ornaments that my brother and I made, including a set of nativity characters. 

My apartment is a little more eclectic as it's a mix of my things and those of my roommate. 


Do you have special decorations that must be put up every year? Where did they come from and what do they remind you of?

  2. My decorations are minimal this year.

  3. My tree is full of eclectic collected mementos from over the years, some made by kids when they were young. This year I won't get to see some of the kids and grands, so I made ornaments with each one's picture on it so they're symbolically here. Will be a very full tree!

  4. I'm going "decorating light" this year. I just feel overwhelmed. Wishing you a wonderful holiday!
