Halloween & Autumn decorations

0

Fall has traditionally been my favorite season, although, for some reason, this year I just haven’t been quite as excited about it. I really enjoyed this summer and soaking up all the sun I possibly could, so I guess I’m just not excited for what is to come after Fall…that which shall not be named will be here before we know it and we won’t see the sun until the Spring. In an effort to get into the Fall spirit, I decorated our house a bit for the season, including Halloween, which is slowly becoming one of my favorite holidays. It’s the only time when pretending to be someone else is perfectly acceptable and even encouraged. It’s especially fun when it falls on a weekend, or a Friday or a Monday, when Halloweekend becomes a thing, offering multiple opportunities for multiple costumes!

 

Christmas decorations

I was so sad that I wouldn’t be able to decorate the house for Christmas this year because of an illness that impaired my walking ability, but as it slowly got better I was finally able to decorate a few days just before Christmas. I love decorating for Christmas every year because it makes the house feel so warm, cozy and festive. This is a sampling of our Christmas decorations this year.
