You know that Christmas is just around the corner when you start seeing Christmas decors everywhere you go. In our home, my mom put them up November 1st but if you’ve been to the malls, decors have been up as early as October!
What I’ve learned throughout the years when it comes to “decking the halls” with Christmas decorations is this: Don’t do it just for the sake of decorating or prettifying your house. Do it with meaning, and understand what each of the pieces represents. Let the decors speak of what Christmas is really all about.
The third part of my Christmas Joys series is all about my favorite Christmas decors displayed in our home. Each piece, when put together, reminds me of the story of the first Christmas, the birth of Jesus. (Oh, and my mom’s an advocate of native things, so you’ll see that everything in our house is produced and bought locally.)
Of course, there are also decors that aren’t related to the story of the first Christmas, but it doesn’t mean that they can’t be meaningful:
When I move to my own place two Christmases from now (aaaaahhh thank you, Lord!!!), I’ll be doing my own Christmas decking with my own style and preferences. I’m so excited!
I can feel the Christmas spirit already! What are YOUR favorite meaningful holiday decorations?
