It’s officially December and Christmas is just around the corner. When I take a walk or go for a short run, I see beautifully decorated Christmas trees shining brightly through the windows of neighbors’ homes. What I love most about Christmas is the scent of a freshly cut tree, a peppermint stick melting in a cup of hot chocolate, gingerbread cookies baking in the oven, and the warmth emanating from a wood-burning fireplace. Most of all, I enjoy Christmas decorations from the stockings hanging on a fireplace mantle, garlands covering stair banisters, lush wreaths on front doors, and colorful lighting installations. How will you decorate your home or office for the holiday season this year? Here are a few Christmas decoration ideas to inspire you to celebrate Xmas with festive love and gratefulness in your heart before the start of a new year.
