Thanks to a smart and thoughtful friend, I have a new favorite holiday decoration. Kelleen knows I struggle getting into the spirit of things come December, and likes to send me a pre-Christmas present so I can get excited about the coming holidays. This year’s really did the trick.
Saturday, I found a big box on the porch. Inside was a present with the best tag a present could have: “Open Me Now!”
Under the wrapping, I found a holiday-themed Lego set: Santa’s Workshop.
It includes the sleigh and reindeer, busy elves, and both Santa and Mrs. Claus. I was so excited I postponed all the chores I had intended to do, put a Christmas video on the TV, and got to work. The results were fantastic. Not only is the workshop with trimmings absolutely adorable (I love teeny stuff!), but it made me smile and laugh. Now it’s gracing my mantelpiece and making me happy whenever I think of it.
Thanks to Kelleen, I’ve shaken my holiday blues. The Grinch is history and I am really excited about the coming holidays. All it took was some cute combined with fun and frivolous.
What is your favorite holiday decoration and why?
