But to start it off, here's the finest gingerbread house in the world.

And here's the best Christmas tree you will ever see in the history of the universe, ever.

I dunno if he has the pic anywhere public, but I follow Wil Wheaton on google+ and he posted a picture of his tree topper - Jack Skellington dressed as Santa.

I liked the idea so much that I nicked it, went to ebay and bought my own. Whenever it gets here I'll top the tree with it Smile

I've never found exactly the right topper - I had an angel for a while, but it's large and I'm not really an angel person. I am a star person, but the ones I really like are antiques and so, expensive.

This is the first year in a long time that I've felt cheerful about the holidays.

Merry Christmas to all.

Looking forward to it this year as well - I get four days off around Christmas, so it'll be a mini-vacation. Been a while since I had one and I do LOVE the holiday season.

This year's Christmas decorations:

Mini tree on top of the bookshelf.


Village - beside the stove.


Nativity is on top of the microwave.

We talked about maybe getting a bigger tree (MIL has said something numerous times about "getting us a tree" this year) but we just don't have the room. I like our simple decor!

We have done NOTHING apart from David hanging our advent calendar (it's a crafty one homemade by his aunt that we use every year). Need to get crackin'!

I've hung the leftover gold-walnut-shells-on-ribbon decorations I made as presents, one in the front window and one from the light switch in the lounge.

We do have some tinsel and baubles, but there's not much point getting a tree as we'll not be here for Christmas itself, and it'll only be me for most of December!

I might go crazy and make some paper snowflakes for the window Razz
