Two years ago we took an Pinterest idea and used it. We strung icicle lights in our hallway. We put them up before Thanksgiving and left them there through February.
We loved the way they looked, making a dark hallway brighter and cheery.
Last year we needed new strings of lights and with Emma's wedding we just didn't get any lights hung up and we missed them.
This year, I got new lights, and Tim hung them the other evening.
This was the first step toward Christmas decor. For those who may have missed that post, we are decorating early since we will be out of town before Thanksgiving and when we get back I have a big Christmas tea at my church that I am in charge of. It is four days after we return.
I am working hard to be organized and ready for the holidays and the tea, and our 9 day trip, so that we can enjoy the season (our favorite time of year) with little to no stress!
For those of you who have already celebrated your Thanksgiving or are from countries that don't do an official Thanksgiving day, when do you begin your Christmas/holiday decorating?
