My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

stocking Are there any Christmas decorations that you keep out all year?

Every year I keep something out on my desk all year long. It changes each year. Last year I kept out a nativity scene all year. This year I kept out a Hallmark Charlie Brown Christmas snow globe, Hallmark Charlie Brown Christmas choir ornament and 2 Santa figurines. I just cannot bring myself to put everything away.

I always keep this one particular decoration out. It is a rocking hourse, music box with Santa on it. It is beautiful - a white horse with all red and green trim on the saddle and ribbons. My grandma gave it to me from her music box collection 2 years before she passed b/c she knew how much I loved Christmas and I used to collect rocking horses. It is always my favorite. Right now it is on the top of my dresser, so I see it every day.

I keep a handcarved wooden santa figuine out all year on my bookcase. I love the feeling it gives me to look over and see him and all the memories it brings back.

I have a funky ostrich pen with a santa hat that stays on my desk all year.

I live with a bit of a Scrooge so it's hard to get away with keeping anything around all year. Hmm, I wonder what I could get away with. Something small.
