Have you been to the mall lately? Whoa, as early as now, Halloween fever is building up already. The decors are beautiful and fascinating. Am not an advocate of witches and monsters, but I can't help but smile whenever I see Halloween decors because it reminds me of the children's happy faces whenever they get a treat. Here in our village, and most probably everywhere else, having Halloween home decor is a sign that there are treats waiting for them. As early as now, my kindergarten students talk of nothing else but their Halloween costumes. I wonder what I'll wear? Teehee.
But more than Halloween, I love to decorate for Thanksgiving. I love the smell of hay, and am excited to curve a pumpkin with my nieces. Since they are somewhat new here in America, it would be a treat to have them try pumpkin curving for the first time. Truth is, I have not hosted thanksgiving at home because our friends, the Slaughter's always invite us to join them. This year, for a change, we will drive to Arizona to celebrate thanksgiving with my sister and her husband. We'll follow the turkey tradition, complete with cranberry sauce and cornbread. I checked out several Thanksgiving tablecloths and am greatly inspired by the lovely designs.
Christmas is my favorite of all. This year, like the last, it's my sister's turn to drive to Houston from Arizona to join us for the winter festivities. We always decorate early. As soon as Thanksgiving is over, we start decorating for Christmas. I take my time decorating because even the simple task of decorating feels like a main event already. I find it enjoyable and I'm sure my nieces will enjoy it too. I have several favorite Christmas home decors, mostly the ones that have sentimental value.
Whew, as soon as Halloween decorating starts, it'll be non-stop til Christmas.. and then hmm... Valentine's day... and so on. Life is made up of delightful decorating!
