Christmas DecorationsChristmas 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.

Lately I have been doing the decorating and have moved us back toward a mainstream 1960s look, big red and green bulbs being the central element. What I would really like is some of those skinny bulbs that start bubbling after they heat up. I'm off to Ebay!
We've always gone with basically the same decorations every year, so it's dominantly dark red, green, and gold around the house!

And my room always has a blue/silver, snowflake theme to it, because those are my favourite colours
