"New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on  other nights."

I have a tree up in every room of my house.  3 are just 2 foot, 1 in 4 foot and 3 are 6 foot . 

This is the 6 foot white with clear lights and gold ornaments I have up in my living room.

This is the 6 foot green with colored lights and ornaments with my grandchildren and great grandchildren picture and ornaments that my family have given me over the years it is in my great room.

This is the 6 foot green with colored lights and the ornaments are in pastel colors it is in my bedroom.

This  4 foot white with clear lights and old fashion ornaments is in my computer room.

I did not take pictures of my little trees.   Please don't laugh but I even have a small green 2 foot tree in my bathroom.

Here are the Santa's I have collected over the years and use in my Christmas decorations.

This little Santa sits in my computer room.

These two Santa's are really tree tops but I just use them on a cabinet I have in my great room.

My Santa pillow in the great room sitting in a rocking chair.

These three Santa's are in my living room.   I use pink to decorate in this room. 

Another pink Santa in my living room next to my pink poinsettia.

This Santa plays a song when you press his hand.  He is in the little room off my kitchen.

This old timey Santa is also in my little room off the kitchen.

This little Santa also shares a place in the little room off the kitchen.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing just some of my decorations.   I use a lot of poinsettias in my decorations and many items that have been given to me by my family over the years.

"I heard a bird sing in the dark of December a magical thing and sweet to remember.  'We are nearer to spring than we were in September,' I heard a bird sing in the dark of December."
