Mom Dot Blog Party: Day 10

Do you decorate for the Holidays? Do you have a themed Christmas tree? Share pics! Do you think there is such a thing as OVER decorating?
I decorate, but not as much as my neighbors. Some of my neighbors go ALL out decorating. We don't do a lot of outdoor decorating. It used to be because my husband doesn't like heights and didn't want to put the lights around the outside of the house (neither do I!), and this year I can't put the light up outside myself, so I doubt we'll have lights up outside, which makes me kind of sad.
I do tend to decorate a lot inside. We have a big picture window that I put blue & silver Hanukkah garland around, and I'll put my Hanukkah lights in that window. That's the window that I put my plug-in menorah decoration that I got a few years ago. I call that my 'Hanukkah window'.
I have the 6 foot tree that I have decorated that stands near the big picture window, which is kind of funny because you can look in and see the Hanukkah decorations AND the Christmas tree -- people get a kick out of that.
On the doorway walking from the living room to the dining room, I put up Christmas colored garland, and that's where I hang up all my Christmas/Holiday cards I receive, as well as a strand of white lights.
That's really all the decorating I do. I love to sit in the living room at night with just the Tree lights and the doorway lights on and watch the twinkling of the lights. It's so calming!

I second you on sitting and watching the lights. It's amazing that something so simple can be so soothing.

my husband hates doing the lights outside too!
Man use to jump out of helicopters in the Corp but he whines getting the lights on the house, doesn't make sense to me!

We don't decorate outside either. It's so much work (and dangerous sometimes), so we just make up for it inside.

I love to sit with warm tea nd watch the lights and tree - even though they don't really DO anything!
