Christmas Decorations to Deck the Halls

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! As I drive through the neighborhoods in my area my breath is taken away with the magnificent glow of Christmas decorations and twinkling lights. The improving economy is definitely apparent this holiday season! More homes than ever, it seems, have put wonderful holiday displays in their yard and garden area, front porches and eves of homes everywhere are lit up with dazzling lights and colorful bows and garland. It is enough to bring Christmas spirit into the hearts of even those Scrooges out there.

I haven’t had time to decorate the house as much as I would have liked this year, but the Christmas spirit is still definitely apparent when you walk into my front door. My 7 foot Christmas tree that I have had since I was a child stands proudly in the corner of my living room, and it brings tears to my eyes as I become overwhelmed with precious holiday memories every time I look at it. I decorate my tree a little bit differently than most I think. First I add strings of red and white Christmas lights to add the perfect glow. Then I add keepsake strings of candle lights that were passed down from my mom. After that, I choose the most brilliant red glass Christmas balls, snowflakes, and bows, and then I accent them with silk poinsettia flowers. At last, the tree is topped with a magnificent angel that my husband and I purchased for our first Christmas together.
