The annual Christmas Decoration Fiasco

My husband seems to hate when I summons him to start dragging out the Christmas decorations every year.  It continually is a mess because we never store them correctly or in an organized way from the previous year, and they are never in a convenient place.  The Christmas decorations generally end up behind all of the summer items that were brought into the basement from outside, so I usually have to set aside an entire day for him to lug everything up to the main floor where the decorating begins.

I love Christmas decorations, which doesn’t help the situation.  We have boxes and boxes full, and we’ve only had our own place to decorate for about four years.  I really don’t know where all of our decorations came from but I love all of them.  I know we inherited some of my grandmother’s Christmas decorations, which of course are my most cherished.  They may not be the most beautiful Christmas decorations, but they hold special meaning and many childhood memories so they are displayed most prominently. 

Then there are the decorations that my mother purchased for us, or that his mother purchased, or even that friends and extended family purchased.  We have a huge amount of Christmas decorations, but they are always tastefully displayed.

Now, my mother in law’s house looks like Santa threw up in it every time Christmas rolls around.  She is a total craft nut, so she has countless Christmas decorations that are just scattered everywhere around the house.  And I mean everywhere.  I don’t think there is one inch in that house that is not covered in red, green or gold during the holiday season.  There are knitted tissue box covers, toilet seat covers, wall hangings, quilts; you name it and it is there.  So many Christmas decorations that you can’t even distinguish where one ends and where another begins.  But she loves them, so I suppose that is all that matters.

Now we have my family.  There are barely any decorations because they muddle the house, and they started using an artificial tree the past few years, which I do not particularly like.  There are some poinsettias, a few sprinklings of gold bows and green wreaths but nowhere near the melange of my mother in laws home.  I realize now that the home my husband and I have created has become a mixture of both of our backgrounds, merging into the perfect display of Christmas decorations.  This is just the way I would have wanted too!
