Holiday Prep

We got home from the Matriarch’s yesterday afternoon, then went right out again. Well, *I* didn’t go right back out. I took a nap first. Wifeness and the girls headed downcountry to accept a spontaneous dinner offer from Mark and Lisa, who kindly took Karla in on Friday night, when she was just DONE with her given family. I came down little later, refreshed as I needed to be from a light doze. What can I say? I have short battery life.

Today is a home day. We have shopping to do, house to keep and decorating for the holidays to undertake. More about that later. Right now, I need to get the morning up to speed. My batteries (currently fueled by this lovely cup of coffee I’m sipping) will not last for long.

Do you decorate for the holidays (whichever of them you honor)? If so, what do you do?

I do not decorate. The past few years I've bought a low cost wreath for the smell and have only managed to toss it over the corner of the closet door. Maybe this year I'll actually hang it up.

We decorate, but you know that because you come on Boxing Day (which, by the way, is one of my favorite holiday traditions). We cut a live tree - the bigger the better - and there are various bits that get put out on tables and counters, but I don't do the full-on, light up the house, animated displays on the front lawn madness. White lights on the tree and pretty candle holders are enough for us.
