I always loved holidays as a child, but as I've grown up, they have really given me something to look forward to. Whether it's seeing my family, a break from school/work/finals, or a fun party, a holiday is always something to gear up for. Loving holidays for me also means loving cute holiday decorations. It has been so much fun collecting my own and feeling like a real grown up as I decorate the house.
Insert: My Husband. He loves holidays. On the holiday itself. Not before. Not after. My husband does not love holiday decorations. Not a single bit. I'm not sure if this is a trend with all males, or just him. However, I'm pretty sure his head was about to explode when I made him come along to purchase our pumpkins at the end of September. (As my luck would have it, one of our pumpkins must have been bruised and is already beginning to rot. This is not helping my case.)
Anyways. Some of our biggest fights have been over my pre or post-season purchases of holiday decor. He can't understand why we should buy a Christmas tree stand in January (in his defense, we were moving soon and it was more stuff to lug around) or Easter decorations in May. Needless to say, he wasn't pleased with my Target/World Market haul last November after Halloween. However, I am loving the spooky touches, and it's a fun way to celebrate Halloween throughout the month since I'll be on a work trip over the 31st. And I waited for October to decorate - perfectly acceptable, right?
And, of course, my autumn table! (previously posted here)
How far in advance do you decorate for holidays? And what's your favorite Halloween decoration this year?
