Decorations

Well as we all know the Christmas period is over, same with the New Year and I saw on another blog this questions “when do you take down your holiday decorations”, so I decided to write a post about this for today’s post.

I put my Christmas decorations up around the middle of November and leave them up till the 1st of January. The type of decorations I use mostly now days are the ones you just stick on a wall, I find that they are easy to do and in all the time I have been using these type of decorations I have only had the paint come off while removing them a couple of times. Although when Kathy-Lee was removing them last week she removed some paint because she didn’t remove the decoration slowly trying to rip it off fast.

Even my Christmas tree now days is a small tinsel tree that sits on the dining room table, I also like decorations that I can sit on top of the television and other things. I do have a larger Christmas tree I just don’t have the room to put it up.

The only time I decorate the house is at Christmas time, I know in other countries people decorate at other times but here in Australia and mostly my family it is only done at Christmas time.

  1. WE barely decorated this year. In the midst of moving and living in temporary condo, all my Christmas stuff was packed. So, I bought a 4ft pre-lit Christmas tree, some silver and red glittery stars and that was it. 🙂

  2. We rarely have visitors over Christmas so we have gone minimal too. We have a large rotating Christmas tree that remained in storage in favor of a new 5 ft. half tree that we bought last year. It hangs on the wall above a cabinet and takes up just the right size and space. It looks really pretty when decorated too. Then I put up just a few favorite keepsakes and a wreath and I’m done with it, enough to feel Christmasy. 🙂 I try to put the tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving and take it down before New Year’s Day. By then I am quite ready to move on from all the fuss of holidays! 🙂 I love stick on decorations too, I put some in my door and window!
