Over the Thanksgiving weekend, my neighbors spent the sunny and breezy Saturday setting out their Christmas lights and outdoor decorations. I saved the task for Sunday, the first day of December.
As decisions go, it was a chilly one.
A cold rain fell all day and when I got my things together in the afternoon it was cold and icy. Happily, porch decoration is one of my favorite things to do each month and so I wasn’t deterred by the wintery conditions. The flag welcomes the Winter weather.
The table is cheerful and I am pleased with the fairy Christmas tree, which lights up in the evening.
There is greenery everywhere.
The fresh pine wreath on the front door smells lovely when I come home each afternoon.
Christmas decorations, with greenery and light, always feels magical to me and I enjoy all the traditions of the month. Merry, merry!
