It is that time of year again when it is time for decorating the tables.. Christmas trees or however you like to arrange your Christmas decorations
Christmas lights are being erected in some homes and one would think we are in Europe , Canada or the U SA with the amount of lights some homes are displaying. We always associate Christmas with snow but here in the tropics the lights, for me, seem out of place. But it is what one becomes accustomed to.
At least the spirit is alive and the giving is just as profound .
For some reason this year I decided to get more involved with the table decorations… or maybe because I found this amazing store in Merida which ironicly is called Miguels…. a take ,I assume, from the store we have in Canada called Micheals where you can buy anything you need for craft making .
Below is what came out of my shopping spree…
The wreath I totally dismantled the purple adornments that I had last year and went back to the traditional Red … so now it has a new look .
I always find it difficult to get in the spirit of Christmas because every business I have owned and operated always centred around Christmas and by the time Christmas rolled around I was so tired and a little tired of the Christmas thing ..to really be in the spirit !. I don’t go overboard with decorations just a few selected pieces .
Wishing all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year from all of us at The Pickled Onion
