Hi all, DH and I have completed day 1 of 2 days of putting out/up our outdoor Christmas decorations. Someone asked me to put some pics out there for y'all, so I will. They are of last year's decorations. I confess, we do the same thing each year so there's nothing new execpt this year there will be no nativity scene. The nativity scene we've used for several years was torn apart last year by the fierce winds we get every winter, and we looked for a replacement last week. Would you believe, the only one we found (in seven different stores) was a blow-up version with the Peanuts characters. It's still in the store.
There's one more place to look for an outdoor nativity, but I'm not certain when we'll get down to York, PA. Probably not this week.
What we did find plenty of, were lighted penguins, bears, angels (already have some) and PINK PIGS - one on skis. Pray tell, what self-respecting, God-fearing Jew would have had pigs in the stable? So what do pigs have to do with Christmas?!!
We have a couple of wooden snowmen, a pole with lights to make it look like a tree, a sleigh with two reindeer 'pulling' it and wooden candy canes with lights attached to the tops. Since we live on a corner, there are a LOT of candy canes. : ) DH and I made them in years past, and that was a labor of love. LOL
Ok, I had some trouble uploading pics ("file too big"). I couldn't upload some I really wanted to, but these give you some idea of what we do.
Think snow for Christmas!
