It’s been many years since I decorated for Christmas. The daughter was in high school with friends and activities of her own. I had to beg for help putting up the decorations. It occurred to me then that Christmas decorations are actually quite gaudy and tasteless: when else does one display fake swags of evergreens, flashing lights, shiny bulbs and baubles, and tacky santas? It was February by the time I managed to take down all that mess by myself and vowed never to bother again.
This year has been different. I discovered the faux stained glass installation I made in 1979. I’d displayed them for several years, then we moved to apartments/house with small windows so they went into deep storage. When I found them a few weeks ago, my first impulse was, “Bah! Humbug!” and toss them into the recycle bin. But both husband and daughter said, “NO!!”
