Holiday Decorations 2022

Those are awesome! My mom has a little town set just like those. It’s always fun seeing them lit up at Christmas.

@Solanaceae I love those decorations. Beautiful work!

I’ve never had a tree tradition. Over the years I’ve hopped around from decorating a rosemary bush to my sad little book tree last year. Today I’m going to get a fake tree to keep.
My hubs bday is Dec. 11th and his family tradition was to put always put the tree up that day. My bday is mid-February. Maybe we’ll keep the tree up until then to banish the winter gloom. If people can decorate “early” maybe I can keep the party going later.

Step one, buy a tree. My brain is already 2 months ahead.

We have one tree, a small one that the decorations change with the seasons and holidays

I now have one too! We’ll see how my pre-lit 7 foot pencil tree fares with two rascally one year old kitties. Update in a few weeks when it goes up.

@Thirdmonkey just the one tree? :wink:

@Olivia :grin::grin::grin: No, they just sniffed and I told them to NOT destroy it. So far it’s still in original shape :hugs:

@TrustyBird In Austria we traditionally keep the tree up until Epiphany, 6th january or Candlemas, 2nd february. Keep it up as long as you like, from bday to bday is a beautiful idea :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Decoration on the tree in front of my house is up and I sit here, watch the sparkle and have hot chocolate :sparkling_heart:

So my ex hates Christmas and he didn’t take the time when he moved out to take any of his Christmas stuff. A lot of it is like homemade stuff from his childhood that I’m definitely sending back to him or to his parents but then there is this……

It has been my favorite ornament and I only just realized his name is hidden on it. Is it bad if I keep it? :see_no_evil:

I mean he did leave it behind so he probably won’t miss it but do you want something made by him with his name on it is the question. If you don’t mind his name being on there I vote keep.

That’s a tough one. When you look at it - do you think “ugh, it’s his” and not want that energy in your home or your gut? if not, I’m with Jen - keep it!
I told my ex (we’re on good terms, divorced a decade ago) that if I ever feel a twinge of guilt about the nice things I ended up with from our former home, I “send him light”. Yeah, I got an eye roll back from him at that one! :smirk: :laughing:
