Holidaze Decorating

As we're getting close to the holiday season, the decorations come out earlier and earlier. One "holiday" season runs into another with some people decorating their houses and lawns for every occasion. They decorate for winter in general, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Anything I forgot? Some are quite elaborate, some sort of cute, some pretty, and many gaudy. If that's what they want to do, that's fine. I barely decorate INSIDE my house for Christmas and never at any other times. Why? Because what goes up, must come down.

I don't decorate for ANYTHING. My roommate usually likes to get a Christmas tree - but if it was up to me we wouldn't do anything.

Decorating for the holidays has never been a big deal for me. Not sure why...

XOXO

Confession...I have all pull and set stuff. I am fond of the colors, so i put up things I can just pull out of the box. this year, they are standing outside their boxes in the cellar-it's been that long. all the easier it will be to just drag their dustiness upstairs.
and if nobody mentions it, I probably won't do that!

We were one of those over the top Halloween houses before all the kids went off to college. Gravestones, a coffin, full sized skeleton in a rocking chair, working guillotine, smoking cauldron.

I took pity on The Engineer as he was left as my only helper so we sent it all to Goodwill. I can only imagine what they thought...

Now I have a haunted village. So the whole mess in miniature and it fits in one bed by the front door. Right now I have a yard full of contractor and crew but I hope to get it out before Halloween.

Outside, I only put a wreath on the front door at Christmas. Inside, we put up a tree and other stuff, but it's getting less and less every year. When my sons were young, we would put up one new thing each day of December.

This year, we're trying to get the floors done upstairs. Consequently, everything (boxes upon boxes of books, furniture, and JUNK) has moved downstairs into the living room and family room. So who knows what it will be like for Christmas. We might be sitting on boxes and eating turkey dinner off bookshelves.

That's what happened with me. I live alone and go to my mother's for family Christmas, so I barely decorate. I have one of those little trees I put on a table and a few other things. Eventually I might put up my big tree again, but who knows?
