As Halloween approaches, I’ve noticed decorations going up on people’s lawns in town and in folks’ pictures online. (Georgia Dunn’s insta shows her Halloween decorations in the background.)
That got me thinking about seasonal decorations and wondering if I’m the only person who doesn’t bother. (Remembering to get/find the kids’ costumes and candy for giving out is about all I can handle for Halloween.) Apparently I’m not because #2 doesn’t either.
#1: Just Christmas. Most years we get a rosemary tree and decorate it, unless we’re traveling over Christmas, in which case we have a felt tree that DH and DC1 made. And the kids have stockings. Usually all of this happens a few days before Christmas after I’ve gotten my final exams graded and entered and school has ended for the year.
#2: Just Christmas. We have some seasonal towels but they’re just red and green so we use them normally. We have stockings and some random tchotchkes people have given us.
#1: Oh yeah, we have towels and a bunch of random Christmas tchotchkes people have given us too. There was a time when DH’s relatives would give us Christmas decorations for Christmas. We also have Christmas theme hand towels and if we have ppl over for Thanksgiving we have fall themed table runners, courtesy of DH’s grandma.
#2: There was a time when people gave us holiday stuff, but much of it has gone to goodwill. We don’t have that kind of room anymore.
#1: If we moved we would probably do that. Our stuff hangs out in a cupboard.
Do you do seasonal decorations? Did you do them growing up?
