In our family, the day after Thanksgiving is the day we deck our halls. Sometimes, if the extended family leaves soon after the meal, we even drag out the tree and decorate it while we digest the Thanksgiving meal (because we are not football watchers here, which I’m told is what most people are doing post-meal.)
In my perfect world, I would have white lights on my tree and then some sort of ornament theme — I have a ton of White House ornaments (they do a special one each year) as well as hand blown glass ornaments from Germany. I’d probably alternate years and use just those. Then I’d have a candle and a wreath in each window, my chile lights on the bannisters, a nativity in the yard, and that would be it.
But oh boy, my boys (and I include hubby in this) have other ideas. And I’ve learned to roll with it. This year, they’ve added some color-changing metallic trees to the Griswold-like cacophony on the front yard.
How do you decorate? (And if it’s different from your “dream” – what’s your dream setup?)
