Holiday Decorating

Do you decorate for holidays? For every holiday or just your favorites? I used to. I would put up something, either on my walls or table, highlighting the upcoming festivities. I had decorations for every holiday invented. Somewhere along the way I stopped. Now I decorate for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the occassional Valentine's Day. I think I just got too busy to give each holiday it's very own fanfare. I'm getting a little sad because of this. I'm going to try and mend my ways. I believe that each holiday deserves it's own special time dedicated to it and it alone. None of this Christmas decorating in November. What about Thanksgiving's feelings? Does no one care about Thanksgiving anymore?!? And Halloween decorations as soon as school starts!?! I'm an equal opportunity holiday observer!

I know my children would love to see red, white & blue bunting on the 4th of July, pastel colored eggs at Easter, childbirth photos on Labor Day. (That is why I celebrate Labor Day, don't you?) It is my goal to improve my holiday-decor-slacking ways. Now where did I put that box of Columbus Day decorations?

I have the classic "white trash" decorations for Christmas. I need to evolve soon. I do love the branch over the table. That is too cool!
