I never had a Christmas tree until I married, so the only Christmas decorations that I had were the Snoopy and Woodstock ornaments that used to come with a miniature box of chocolates. (The winter I was in an apartment that had just the right number of cup hooks beneath the kitchen cabinets was my favorite when it came to hang them.)
Did you buy holiday decorations on a whim only to realize they don’t add to the holiday feel? If you “forget” to put those decorations out, will anyone notice their absence?
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Eliminate a holiday or seasonal ornament that has no sentimental value and that you don’t enjoy displaying.
