Christmas Decor Different Styles for Everyone
I have come to realize that Christmas decor can encompass anything. I have seen so many different types of decorating and love them all. I think that I just love the spirit of the individual that shines through the creativity.
I have used many different themes for my Christmas décor over the years. I have had a single color theme several times. I had fun decorating for the Yellow Christmas and also for the Purple Christmas. My children thought that those years were the most fun.
My mom had a friend when I was in high school that worked as a linguist for the United Nations. I thought he had the coolest job I’d ever heard of. He had a Boxing Day party one year at his house and his Christmas décor was very interesting. His theme was international flags. I was so jealous of all of his adventures.
I have a friend that teaches environmental science at the local high school. He had a Christmas party for his friends this year. I don’t think I’ve ever been to his house during the holidays and seen his Christmas décor before. He had an awesome blue nautical theme for his tree and mantel. It looked so serene. He had blue lights up on the outside of his house and an inflatable Santa surfing on his roof.
I have another friend that has decided to use St. Patrick’s Day decorations for her Christmas décor. She has a lot of fun hanging up four leaf clovers and putting Santa hats on leprechauns. She used to tell her kids that being Santa was St. Patrick’s other job. Her kids grew up with some very strange notions.
am not really very crazy about licensed characters all over my Christmas tree. It is just not my favorite Christmas decor at all. I still remember the Year of the Bob. My son was intent on decorating our whole house one year with Spongebob Squarepants decorations. It was hideous. I had to institute some more guidelines for acceptable Christmas décor after the Year of the Bob.
