Day 6: Decorating!


Decorating the house, inside and out is one of the ways to bring the coziness of Christmas to your home.

Your mission: Capture the beauty of your holiday decorations.

Photo ideas:

  • The big pile of decorations.
  • Before and After photos of your room/house.
  • Standing on the ladder to hang a garland/wreath.
  • The mantle or other display area.
  • Some close-up photos of the decorations.
  • You/your family by the front door.

But wait… here are some more ideas… let’s explore wreaths, garlands and stockings a little further.

Wreaths and Garlands:

A circle is symbolic of eternity or eternal life, and that is only one of the meanings of Holiday Wreaths. Whether your wreath is a symbolic part of your Christmas or just a beautiful decoration it adds beauty to your home.

Things to consider:

  • Does your wreath provide the finishing touch to the decorations at the entrance of your home?
  • Do you use wreaths on your Christmas diner table?
  • Why do you have the type of wreath that you have?

How do you bring a bit of nature into your home at Christmas? Some people love to add a bit of nature with a fresh bough garland. Even if your ‘nature’ is faux or bought in a store it still is symbolic of bringing the outdoors inside, so it counts!

Perhaps you also hang stockings?

“The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.”

Are Christmas stockings a tradition at your house? What goes in the stockings? Where do they hang? When do you receive them?

Christmas stockings are a fun part of Christmas for many people but if you don’t hang stockings perhaps you’ll share recollections of Christmas stockings from your past, or another Christmas tradition.

Alternate idea:

  • New Christmas Pj’s, do you get/give new pyjamas on Christmas Eve?
