For those of you who don’t already know, Christmas is a BIG DEAL in my home….really, in my extended family. When I say Christmas, I really mean the entire time between Thanksgiving week’s beginning and the end of New Year’s Day. There’s a lot of sappy and emotional stuff, of course, but I’ll save that for another day. Today is the day we discuss holiday decor.
Part of our love for the season, of course, is the decorations. In our world, it’s considered perfectly normal to have an entire collection of Christmas dishes. We even have a dish for the dog and cats that match my holiday dishware. No joke. I actually have a full service for 12 in my holiday dishes. At last count, I had 7 dinner plates and 8 salad plates, plus 5 bowls intact, and 1 with some chips. But it’s ok, it makes sense. It’s for Christmas. (My mom believed in the ENTIRE set of whatever, so for years we got pieces to add on to the dishes!! YEARS).
We aren’t going stop at the dishes, my friends. There’s also the 2 bins of ornaments. One is full of special, family ornaments, that my kids are already telling me “Mom you tell us about this EVERY TIME you take it out of the bin to hang on the tree!!” and I think it’s my most favorite part of the decor.
Once the holiday decorations come out, the holiday coffee comes out, too. You knew that was coming, right? I mean, we have Christmas mugs, we need Christmas coffee (and cocoa…and tea…)
My most favorite decoration of all time was a toilet lid cover that had Santa on the top saying “Ho Ho Ho!” but when you lifted the lid he had his face covered saying “oh, oh oh!” because…well, you can use your imagination. Most years, there was coordinating toilet tissue. No room is left untouched in this family when it comes to holiday decor.
From my mug to yours, I wish you all a very Merry Mugmas! Enjoy your holiday coffee!
