I’m six days into Hannukkah and 17 days away from Christmas. Last year we avoided Christmas decorating completely by taking a trip to Santa Fe New Mexico during the holidays where they always have a blanket of snow this time of year along with colorful decorations inspired by Native American and Spanish traditions. This year, eventually we’ll do a little bit of decorating but I’m going to be putting the emphasis on natural items because I love the smell of pine and not the smell of plastic. No tree will get put up until my daughter Alex gets home, so we are talking the middle of the month, which looking at the calendar is not so very far away. I’m trying to put the focus on simplicity and I will see how far I get with it, thinking less is more. Maybe I should rename this blog post “Have Yourself a Merry Simple Christmas.” More later.
Have yourself a merry simple Christmas.
