I'm so excited for Christmas. I love the whole thing. The lights, the tree, the food, and of course we can not forget the presents. This year it took us a while but we got our tree and I got the house all decorated.
I was out of the country last year for Christmas doing research for my Master's thesis so this will be the first time we celebrate Christmas in the new house. I made Jeff get a huge tree
I like to decorate the tree in red and gold. This year we got the star for the top. I love to put a star on the top of the tree because it seems fitting for Christmas. We are not big on the religious aspect of Christmas (I was raised a Buddhist) but I do think that when we celebrate what is for me a celebration of light in the darkest time of the year, a star is fitting.
Besides the glass and what Target calls "shatterproof" balls (meaning they were not glass) we have a few very special ornaments.
I got these large angels at a yard sale in the middle of the summer. I got four of them and they always make me so happy when I see them.
I have a little thing for angels in crescent moons (it is a long story).
I got this star at a craft fair. I love how it shines in the Christmas lights.
So that is my house for the holidays. I will leave you with one last picture.
What do you do for the holidays?
