I was originally going to make this a Wordless Wednesday post, but since today’s prompt for #AMonthofFaves is
Tue. | Dec. 15 – – show off your favorite ornaments, home decor, place to go, holiday drinks, holiday eats, holiday themed reads
I thought I’d flesh it out a little more and join in the fun! We spent this Sunday afternoon getting the house decorated…which, quite honestly, is mostly just the tree, but I do save a few books to put out every year.
|I reviewed The Stupidest Angel in December 2010–it’s the best Christmas-zombie story I know. I suspect most of you are more familiar with the other two books, though.|
We haven’t actually gotten around to watching A Christmas Story the last few years, but it’s still part of our traditions. As one of the great pop-culture icons of the holiday season, Ralphie gets two spots on our tree.
Honestly, aound our house, pop-culture icons are in season all year long.

|With a Weeping Angel atop the tree, this is how Whovians do the holidays.|
Our tree’s other major motif is mementos from places we’ve visited. We have a tradition of acquiring two things as souvenirs when we travel–refrigerator magnets and Christmas ornaments. We love turning the tree into a place to reminisce, prompting us to remember where and when we got each of these additions and reminding us of places we want to see again.
