Beginning to look a lot like christmas… indoors

It’s kindof a unusual sensation to be setting up Christmas decorations these afternoons, I have to say.

  • I savor the holiday & making our house look festive for the season, but I’ve been feeling conflicted inside because it just doesn’t feel like the holiday is approaching.

You see, I’m accustomed to a cold & bleak winter season that signifies the coming festivities. I was born & raised in the midwest, where there is no shortage of ice cold weather, falling snow, & holiday cheer to combat the major depressive spell brought on by winter. Every day feels like surviving as you option up gifts & string lights in the cold outdoors. The only relief is wrapping presents in the warmth & safety of your central heat at the end of the day. These afternoons, but, I live down in the south, & the air temperature sure is strange as the happiest day of the year approaches… Rather than bundling up in heavy layers to go out & shovel the driveway every day, we’re just starting to rake the leaves out of our yard. Instead of warming up by the fireplace with a moderate cup of cocoa, we’re still lounging on outdoor patios to sip on ice cold drinks. Everything feels just a little “off” separate from the temperature change that I friendd with Christmas for 26 years of my life. That’s why I’m trying desperately to keep our indoor environment as wintery & festive as possible! The first thing I did was to clear off our little gas fireplace so my friend and I could have a fake roaring fire for the rest of the month; Next, I decorated all over with piney garland decorated with fake snow & bells. Finally, I unfastened the furnace, so it would feel at least a little like Christmas via our indoor air temperature.
