Christmas Is Still Christmas Even As An Octogenarian

On Facebook, I belong to a group called “Miracle of Christmas” where people show off their holiday decorations. Most of them begin this festive adoration in late October. If that is what you like, go for it! Personally, I prefer to wait until after Thanksgiving.

As I look back, neither my mother nor my mother-in-law continued to decorate into their octogenarian years. We continue to decorate with a much smaller tree, a few knick knacks, our huge glass star made by my husband and lights on the yard bushes. Smaller, but satisfying.

I do love Christmas. It can be as much work as you want it to be...
