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.

We're going to have our first celebration this year, just the two of us. We're thinking a turkey dinner with treats and desserts that we usually have only at Christmastime, plus some movies and music.

I celebrate by watching Christmas movies, watching qvc's Christmas in July, and making a small turkey dinner. I usually don't decorate but I may put out a few things this year.

I keep it pretty simple by watching one or two of my fave Christmas movies on random days of July. I also like to go over my Christmas card list around this time and tune up my music collection by going through my CD's and thinking about what new artists I might like to add this Christmas. I don't do any decorating until November.
