Feeling a little Grinched?
Well, it's done. The decorating that is. Every year I say the same thing: "I'm NOT putting up ALL the decorations." Every year my children smile and nod knowingly as ALL and sometimes more than ALL (the extras bought on sale after Christmas the previous year) manage to crowd the house.
Yes, it's true. I'm an excessive holiday decorator. I've found a way to crowd the house with items from all the major occasions; Halloween, Christmas and, yes, even the arrival of the Easter Bunny. Holidays arrive and kitschy crap explodes onto every available surface. It's a sickness that's taken on mythic proportions.
How about you? do you exercise restraint in holiday decorating, or do you get a little carried away?
