Well….December is finally here. And with it come lots of festivities. Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Ashura, Kwanzaa, Las Posadas, Bodhi Day, Santa Lucia Day or Christmas, I wish you all the best for your celebration. I myself celebrate Christmas and so during the month of December I may write about some of the traditions of this holiday. But pretty things, sparkly items, twinkling lights, flickering candles and gifts pertain to everyone whether you are celebrating or not. No better time than now does “Home for the Holidays” ring true. Getting your ‘nest’ ready to celebrate can be lots of fun with so many choices for style and décor. Parties, Open Houses, so much to do, taking the time to attend them and enjoy them all is key. Tis the season, so let the
decorating celebrations begin!
The photo below is me, Modmissy, ~3 years old on Christmas morning, holding my new doll. Notice in the background the artificial tree with mounds of tinsel, wood paneling (see post https://modmissy.com/2011/09/29/new-interpretation-of-70s-paneling/) and a kid size folding chair (see post https://modmissy.com/2011/10/12/folding-chairs/). Considering the times of which this photo was taken check out the gift of a toy gun (inside red circle) and ‘The Happy Puppy’ record (inside red square), the LP released in 1962 by Bent Fabric, well-known for the famous ‘Alley Cat’ song. Truly a blast from the past!
