Now... On To Christmas

The turkey is gone, the Fall and Thanksgiving decorations are gone and today the Christmas decorations have come out.

These are a few (very few) of Carol's nativity scenes. They look like those of the smallest but she does have some with figures up to to 18". They are beautiful and from several different countries.

Timmothy has set up the tree and is putting the decorations on it. I admit, I am ready for the Christmas season. Of course the sooner it's over I can see spring down the road... a long, long road. (May is spring for us up here in the Northland).

Hi Bob... I've spent part of the last three days getting my house ready for Christmas. About 90% of the way there.

Good evening Bob,

I had friends over to help me decorate my tree last night with wine and snacks! I always enjoy our time and I'd say I'm 98% the way to having everything up! I like to enjoy the holidays so like to get my things up right after Thanksgiving!

Hi Bob fall is put away and Christmas is in the making around our house. Looks so pretty with all the high garlands and white lights on the windows etc.

Great post, Bob! Your description of transitioning from Thanksgiving to Christmas decor at home brings out the essence of the holiday spirit. Carol's international nativity scenes and Timmothy's tree decorating efforts paint a vivid picture of festive joy. Enjoy the season! 🎅🌟 #HolidayTraditions #HomeCelebration

I agree Anna "Banana" Kruchten , Christmas is the most beautiful time of year. The Spirit of Christmas is also beautiful.

Thank you Charles Ross - eXp Realty LLC . It is the Spirit that makes it so beautiful. One final touch is the Polar Express running around the tree (we even had the batteries on hand).

Bob "RealMan" Timm  against my better judgement, I took 90 per cent of the Thanksgiving decorations down... Tomorow the other 10%.. and only after it will the Christmas Decorations come up:)Endre

I have regressed in my Christmas decorating, haha.  Not that I ever went all out, but I used to at least put up a tree with some other decorations around the house.  I probably should at least put out the Nativity Scene though, haha.

How wonderful that your home is decorated and ready for Christmas. Hopefully you'll have a white Christmas and then a miracle will happen and you will have sunshine for the rest of winter. !!!  One can hope.

Bob "RealMan" Timm you know you'd always be welcome, Bob! Just two trees this year... I did one all glittery with silver and gold ornaments and one little one with my blue and white Delft ornaments from The Netherlands.

Good plan Endre Barath, Jr. You don't want the confusion of mixed holiday decorations.

Ours keeps growing and growing Brian England but I have never been much of a outdoor decoration person with the exception of an old projector (not LED).

Sunshine for the rest of the winter sounds really good to me Kat Palmiotti but believe it or not I am not much of a snow fan.

Bob "RealMan" Timm Delft Blue is the "official" pottery and porcelain of Holland named after the city of Delf. France has Limoge, Hungary has Herend, Germany has Meissen, Norway has Royal Copenhagen, Austria has Augarten, Russian has its Imperial Porcelain., England has Royal Crown Derby. The list can go on and on. I own a full set of hand-painted Limoges dinnerware for 13. I own Herend pieces, Russian Imperial pieces, Delf Blue pieces, etc. I love fine porcelain.

I can relate to that Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty as it truly applies to nearly every project I do, however in this case every aspect of Christmas decorating falls on my wife and son these days.
