Might be light posting until later. We’re festooning the house with every manner of garlands, sparkling lights, flocked and twinkling trees (three of them), lanterns, holly, candles, life-sized and animated Santa statues, and all manner of holiday paraphernalia.
So far, the front porch is dressed up.
As are the kitchen/dining areas of this 100-year-old Maine house.
Next: the back porch, and ramped entry way.
Later — photos of the finished product on the inside and the “Griswold’s” lighted display outside. T’is merry and bright!
Why do we go to the effort /trouble for just one month’s time of jolly, jolly, before we pack it all up, clean up the flocking, tinsel, etc., and leave for warmer climes in our Florida home? Because we love
stress, er… Christmas.
Well, (sigh…) t’is the season.
Fa la la la la…la la la la and all that.
Wouldn’t it be a lot simpler (and peaceful) to just remember and observe that Jesus IS the reason? And leave the decorative trappings behind?
