… Christmas! After taking a break yesterday and buying some stocking stuffers at a nearby shop that sells local arts, crafts, and delicacies, I finally am starting to feel a bit of Christmas spirit!
The town and beyond is starting to have a wintery, holiday look.
I bought a new Santa for my display above the stairs.
And our old tree was falling apart, so we bought a new one. The most realistic tree we could find comes pre-lit. I’m not sure I really like the white lights. Seems a bit cold, if elegant. But we have hung up the old coloured light strands around the archways in the house, so I’m happy.
The dog is happy too. He was scrounging around underneath hoping for some Christmas treats.
A few weeks ago, we had an online charity auction at work. My team contributed several baskets and I ended up having to buy one, because no one was bidding on it. (Somehow it’s just not like the RA auction, in terms of excitement!) One of the items in the basket was a pair of owl salt and pepper shakers, which I wasn’t too keen on. But they actually look pretty good on my table with the Christmas display!
What about you? Have you done your holiday decorating yet? And how’s your holiday spirit coming along in this strangest of years?
