Holiday Decorating Pa s s i o n at e A b o u t

By Lynette Chilcoat Decorating for the holidays infuses a home with a joyful glow, counteracting an otherwise cold, dreary season of gray days and long, dark nights. Some people are content with putting up a traditional tree and calling it good, while others go all out, decking their halls with fine details of magical winter ornamentation. Available surfaces such as sideboards and bookcases are often filled with holiday trimmings. Cheerful snowmen, reindeer, or a Christmas village on a shelf lend flair to a home. It’s not unheard of to see entire coffee and end tables, and, indeed, whole rooms, transformed to a gilded, glittery setting. Stepping into the yard, a different kind of world awaits, lighted in jewel tones and sparkling effervescence. Everything from giant baubles hanging in snow-enshrouded branches to faux deer on the lawn await the eye hungry for bright color and gaiety.
