Christmas is Coming

December 1st, 
and that means the Christmas holidays
start in my house. 
And how did I mark the first day of the season?
It turned out to be very warm--in the 50s and sunny--
so I went outside and put wreaths on the doors,
a wreath on the wide picture window,
one on the deck gate,
and two on interior doors.

Decorating with wreaths dates back centuries,
so it's one tradition I particularly enjoy participating in.
These two Still Waters blog posts have more details 
about the history of wreaths:
