Do you decorate?
I really love the Christmas and New Year's holidays what with all of the decorations. You go to an office building, there are decorations. You go shopping, there are decorations. You drive through a neighborhood, there are many fine examples of exterior illumination displays that would make Clark Griswold envious. Even some truckers hang wreaths on the front of their rigs to celebrate.
But then all the decorations come down and are put back into their out-of-the-way hiding places, destined to gather dust until next season. Everything looks rather plain, doesn't it? Even barren of anything that resembles a celebration.
And that's why every year I leave out some decorations. I know it may look rather strange to some people for me to have Santa Claus figurines on a table, or the nativity scene on my desk or an angel hanging in a window or a candle in the window. But I leave a decoration or two out to remind me that I can celebrate all year long as I make a life worth living and Live Positive. And you can, too! Keep a decoration out next week and celebrate!
