My husband and I began decorating the house for Christmas today. With our medical problems it takes us a few days. LOL. Yet, after spending basically the whole day accomplishing what we did, we were sitting and talking and I asked him What is your favorite part of decorating?
He said that hanging the Christmas bulbs was his favorite and went into describing various past events/instances and why that was his favorite. I really enjoyed listening to his memories.
My favorite part of decorating is arranging all of my Nativity Scenes. For me it is so calming. Now, I can not stop there....I also love to set up all of the Knick Knacks. Understand that for me with having the severe memory problems that I do, it is like opening Christmas presents all over again. YIPEE!! On top of that, my husband describes the memories that go along with them and we end up talking and laughing. It really is a special time.
One more thing that to me really makes Christmas decorations come alive (so to say) is the various Garland. They come in so many colors and just add that extra sparkle and brilliance to everything.
I just thought I would share and find out what your favorite part of decorating is and why? Looking forward to reading all of your responses. I also want to say Thank You for sharing.
