Our decorations would change through the years because Mother was so creative. We used lots of Magnolia leaves, holly and fresh fruit to decorate the mantles. Velvet bows were tied on the four-poster bed in the front room and the outside porch posts were wrapped like candy canes. We always had a fresh Christmas tree until Mother bought an artificial tree around 1972. It was much easier on our allergies!
The nativity candle that belonged to my Aunt STILL remains one of my favorite things…the design would dance on the wall when it was lit…It was always in the center of our round table.
As we got older, we would go to our friends house and help THEM decorate the trees—that was always fun…These are pictures from Christmas decorating at my house in 1979.
AND I had to fuss at the boyfriend to PUT DOWN the camera and help us with the lights…
And then there was time to snuggle with my then boyfriend…ROFL
THIS is what CHRISTMAS means to me…I hope you are having a WONDERFUL FUN Christmas Season…Blessings to YOU…~charlotte♥
