  •  We always start right after Thanksgiving. (11+ / 0-)

    And this year, we'll be away for a week during the season, so may as well have it up to enjoy while it makes sense.

    Three trees. Some lights on the porch. We don't really go all out in the yard. But something is nice. I have several nativities up year-round, like hand-made stained glass that is impossible to really safely pack up and some neat artistic, ones of various ethnicities. During Christmas, I think we're at 10 actively on display. LOL.

    Plus the village, which is not themed or fancy. I say it's timeless because of Christmas magic. There are some city things and a castle and random sorts of businesses we enjoy.

    But walking through the house with lights and sweet-smelling candles, I have to say fills me with great joy. It doesn't matter I'm not having tons of company. It matters that it makes me feel peaceful and happy.
