 I must say I am surprized that the majority voted no decorations.
I just don't have the commercial christmas spirit. I absolutley hate shopping, unless it's for tractor parts or hunting gear or such. So at Christmas time I don't even go in the big stores. Celest puts up a few lghts inside and some mistletoe. I don't buy any guifts but I do give my nieces money, this year it will be a bag full of dollar bills.

 Huh, reading this sounds kind of grinchy. But we do have a big dinner with lots of relatives. We do hot mulled cider and are festive. I just burned out on the santa claus thing.

Merry Christmas everyone!
and certanly have a great new year!

Jon, I like your kind of Christmas, swapping lies with friends and family is the best part.

I am kinda a grinch at first, but I warm up to it and then have a great with it all. We a have a fake tree, we all have allergies!  I have 3-4 boxes of decorations that my gramma has been giving me a few each year.  Rita has several boxes of outdoor stuff and it took me 5 hours to put up what I did, and theres more to go.  I get part done and then want to just keep adding to it.

Tractor all decked out,...  Great, now I have to go to wally world to get more lights! 

Pashale, you never know what might happen.  I have a friend who works at the pentagon, he saw an apartmet that was eminating a green glow.  Kawasaki green to be percise, so being a Kaw-boy he had to investigate.  He met his future wife that night and now they have been married for a coulpe years and are very happy.   Heck its worth a try!

I saw the best decorations that i have seen in a while today. Its a little pine about 5' tall by a culvert at the junction of two state highways no houses around. Someone put some tensile on it and about a dozen red balls, it made me feel good when i saw it. I need to get a camera.

limbrat, there is a perfect little balsam growing on an old boompier out in the middle of a wide part of the Androscoggin River. It can be seen from the road. I always wanted to go put some battery powered lights on it for the Christmas season. ;D

I checked 'don't decorate' because I usually only put lights on a tree outside  that no one but me can see. Might put a bow on an arm load of fresh cut balsam branches and hang them inside for the smell. I used to just decorate a house plant so I guess my decorating is escalating :D

 8) Hello everyone, I was doing a search on Paulownia trees and low and behold, I found you guys! :o This is the first year I put up NO decorations! I made barbeque spareribs on the grill, a pasta salad, some collard :) greens and a nice peanut butter chocolate chip cake. Not too traditional, but me and the DH loved it! We only gave each other a little gift or two because we purchased our retirement property this past year, (45 acres of beautiful land down south of here) so all our resourses have been going towards that. :) Oh, that guy on your left? His name is Alladin, he's my breeder bull Dromedary camel.
