My first post on my Christmas blog...

Welcome to my Christmas blog! I just love everything to do with Christmas. I got the idea of a Christmas blog from Becky at 'Of Bluebirds and Roses.' She just started a Christmas blog recently and when I saw it I knew that I just had to create one too. I asked her first if she would mind if I made one. I didn't just want to 'copy' her idea. She wrote me back and said that she was glad that she had inspired me to create a Christmas Blog. Thank you Becky.

I have many happy memories of past Christmases. To me that is the most cheerful and joyful time of year. People seem more friendly and there is just a more pleasant atmosphere. I love to see all of the store fronts decorated. It really puts me in the "Merry" Christmas mood. I love to ride around at night and look at other people's decorated homes. I really like the ones with the more elegant looking decorations. Sometimes the more simply decorated homes are the prettiest to me. However...I do like to see a few that look like the one in the movie "Christmas Vacation".

This was my pink dining room one Christmas years ago. I was more into victorian style decorating then. My favorite color has always been pink. I guess you can tell!! I had a tree in 4 different rooms. Even my bathroom! Each one had different themes and colors. There is so much that I love about the holiday season. The most important being the birth of our savior. The real reason for the season is Jesus. I hope you like my Christmas blog and I hope you visit often.

Hello, Lee Laurie!!
What a lovely Christmas blog! Your header is just beautiful!!
I like the pink Christmas decor you've shown. So you have more than one tree also? The number of mine vary each year, but is usually around ten. I like to use different themes in different rooms.
I'll be back to visit often!

Hello Lee Laurie, I came from Becca's blog and I had a Christmas blog, but deleted it, so I am going to make another new one, but my decorations are mostly traditional and new, but have an extensive Hallmark Collection, so as soon as I get it up again, I'll have it posted on my blog. I love pink things and hopefully next Christmas, I will have one room with nothing but pink, white, silver, and clear glass. Great start--looking forward to visiting more. Hugs, Pat

Hi Lee Laurie,
Love your Christmas blog. I'm actually toying with the idea myself. Can't have too much Christmas, can we?
Thanks for sharing.
