I love the holidays. I love the cooler weather, the changing color of the leaves, the eating—I'm happier than normal this time of year. Of course, there's stress that comes along with it, but it's easier to handle when it's stress for a good reason—giving.
One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is the decorating. For the past couple of years, Colt and I have had a small silver Christmas tree. This year, being it's our first year as an officially married couple, we got a completely new, larger, white tree. To go with our tree, we got new ornaments. Which threw me for a little bit of a loop when it came to decorating the rest of the apartment without having to buy completely new decor, but I think I've got it figured out. As soon as we finish up, and clean up the bits of itself the tree's left on the floor, I'll make a separate post. For now, I'll just share with you a photo of the decor I set up at the entrance to my cubicle.
I call it "Happy Hoth-idays". (Apologies for the somewhat crappy lighting. And the poor excuse for a pun.)
What's your decor like? Do you wait until after Thanksgiving to put yours up? (Colt's a stickler for each holiday having it's own time, and I'm cool with that.) When do you take it down? Ours will probably stay up until at least a week after the new year begins. I just love it too much.
