Decorations- decorations everywhere!

I love Christmas; I love giving and receiving gifts. In fact, I have my sibling’s gifts ready and I’m counting down the days until I can give them their gifts.

My problem with Christmas isn’t the season or being with family.

It’s not the endlessly crowded mall or overpriced gifts.

It’s not even the Christmas music from Halloween until Jan. 1.

My problem with Christmas is decorating. I hate it with a burning passion.

That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate looking at others’ beautiful decorations. I just hate decorating.

The way I see it, you have to dig this massive tree out of the corner you stuffed it into a year earlier and then all of the ornaments, the nativity scene, the fake snow (because Texas), the singing animals, all of it.

Once it’s all out of wherever, (in my case the top of our barn where I have to climb up precariously stacked boxes to drop down the horrendous mess to my eager siblings), you have to set it all up.

It has to look perfect. The tree, the lights, the star, the entire house is full of holiday cheer and all I can think is please let me be gone when it’s time to put it all back.

I love Christmas; but maybe I’m the Grinch with decorations.
