We have some star and snowflake projectors up. We are hanging some icicle lights today.. Will have to get a nativity scene next year, since they are so expensive :( .. I will just wrap our wooden cross with white lights :)
Society tends to be driven by the buck, which ruins Christmas. I love it but not the crazy shopping and over spending, the pressure and rush and buying just to be buying. It's nuts.
But I love a beautiful Christmas tree and seeing all the pretty houses at night. Love a good prime rib dinner with my family and friends. And I think about Jesus and the gift of being able to connect with the Creator, the real reason for the season. And fudge, that's real too. :)
