On Christmas decorations.

Christmas decorations at my house consist of a lovely wee tree, a few lanterns, a couple of angel ornaments, and a garland of baubles on the mantelpiece. The colour scheme is white lights, and gold and purple baubles.

The different approach to decorations in different homes intrigues me. I had a conversation recently where a few people shared their own family traditions. There were homes where the colour scheme changes annually and woe betide any who introduce a rogue red bauble on a white and silver year. One friend spoke of her family’s ban on tinsel and coloured lights. Another likes to introduce every shiny, colourful light, bauble, bead, and streamer that can be found. Another still likened his in-laws tree (decorated in straw figures) to something from The Wicker Man.

Not very Christmassy.

All quite different. My question is: Where do you stand? Tinsel? Coloured lights? Inflatable Santa in the front garden?

In summary: decorations.
