Christmas: Which Kind of Christmas Decorator are You?


Outdoor Christmas Tree

Christmas Time is Here?

So it’s that time of year again, when the Christmas tree makes its annual appearance and houses across the world will be festively decorated in time for the 25th. I always find when it comes to decorating for Christmas there are three main categories of people:

  1.  The people who do not, will not, nor have any intention to decorate. (Bah Humbug!)
  2. The people who decorate haphazardly with no care for order and semblance and that’s exactly how they like it.
  3. Finally those who decorate with such precision and obsessive compulsivity that frankly Christmas would be ruined if a piece of tinsel is out-of-place!

Do Your Baubles Match the Tinsel?

So which one are you? I have to admit I am guilty of allowing my son to help decorate only to rearrange things slightly when he’s tucked up in bed. I’m not however one for matching decorations or colour schemes. Our baubles have more meaning than anything with some personalised or from a special place and then just the ones we consider favourites. Although I will occasionally stick the tackier choices toward the back I don’t think it really matters.

My Mother however would decorate with such anal precision it was quite a military operation and ultimately sucked the fun out of everything. Growing up if it wasn’t red or gold it did not see the tree whether it was hand crafted or not!

If You Don’t Decorate was it Really Christmas?

My friend Liz is the complete opposite and an anomaly to me!! She point-blank refuses to decorate at all. She doesn’t see the point, want to exert the effort or wanted to deal with the mess. I see her point of view but come on not even a Christmas candle?? Seriously though people choose not to decorate for so many different reasons, some quite personal and honestly if that is your choice I completely respect it.

So how is your decorating going? Let me know which category you best fall into or if you are a mixture. I am definitely between two and three!
