It’s that time of year, the season of two-sided people. The season marketers love, people stress over and children become overstimulated with. The bah-humbug creeps its way out in the form of rude, irritable and cranky people.
But that’s only one side of the season.
The other side of the season pushes people into the kitchen for the traditional sugar cookie bake, then into the living room to assess the best spot for the Christmas tree and ends with the great dive into the spirit of holiday shopping. Christmas music, colorful lights, yeast and cinnamon in the air, all enticing people to act courteous, humble and generous.
So, ease back, relax and enjoy the cool weather, bright lights and holiday décor. We’re here today to share a small part of our holiday décor with you. Feel free to share yours. We’d love to see it!
I always start my season with Christmas music and Poinsettia plants. I love the rich red and green leaves.
I spend a few moments deciding what, when, how to decorate our home. It’s never the same from year to year, so whatever strikes me is what happens. My favorite Christmas decor is the year Neo, our cat, decided that a tree in the house was a wonderful opportunity…

And the Nikon moment of the season was Neo playing hide-n-seek…..

It was a fun year of plastic balls and colorful shapes as our cats thought the tree was all for their enjoyment. From batting and chasing to climbing and falling asleep, our cats enjoyed the special tree that year. I solved that problem by putting up a new tree the next year that was stiff and scratchy. They haven’t climbed it yet….maybe this year I’ll pull out our glass ornaments!
I’d love to see your décor for the season. So take a moment to share some photos. Also, visit my fellow Firebirds and their favorite holiday decor. . . Sharon Wray, Kay Hudson, Tamra Baumann, and Priscilla Oliveras
