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.

If you really want to get into something that could really grow on you, try Blowmolds. If you have the room outside, they really stand out and they have a character all their own. After awhile you sort of get hooked on them and you'll see, that soon after you buy your first one, you think "I need another one" and soon, your collection just keeps growing and growing.....

hello love!!

think of things of Christmas......what stands out to you? for some it may be Santas, lighting, decorated trees & lots of them, angels, nativities, etc.

find what speaks to YOU most & run w/ it! that's the most fun part of it, having different peeps w/ all different kinds of collections or settings.

ex:my hubby loves Santas...iyiyi does he love santas, all kinds, sizes, you name it

i, on the other hand, love angels & nativities.

you'll have a blast filling your new home w/ what makes you happiest!!!!

there are many great ideas here at MMC, check out Christmas decorations, there are so many ideas there.

I like the suggestion that you go with what moves you.

My decorations have changed over the years as my family grew and changed. Many of my decorations have left home with my girls so I have had to look for new ones (not that I minded doing that! LOL)
