We're going to get a real Christmas tree sometime this week, but I couldn't get rid of the itch to start decorating, so we got the lights today. These are the globe lights that will cover our Christmas tree:



I've always had a thing about lights-- when I was little I was allowed to decorate my bedroom for the holidays, so I always put up white lights on my walls or wrapped them around my furniture. Now that I'm an adult I get to do it to my living room instead! (AND I CAN EAT ALL THE CANDY I WANT AND STAY UP LATE READING BOOKS IN BED. So there.)


Last but not least: we've had this skeleton hanging up on our door since Halloween. His name is Phillip. (He has no lower jaw. It's very sad.) I thought it would be amusing to give him a Santa hat rather than take him down completely. There's also a small ornament hanging from his wrist:


As I said to the husband earlier, "Even during the holiday season we should be reminded of our own mortality." (Morbid jokes. I make them.)

Our neighbors are going to think we're so weird. And they're going to be right.[image error]

Tina That is the cutest Santa hat EVER. I would totally love to be your neighbor.

Rebecca I think a jawless skeleton santa totally deserves a beard.

PS. Your lights are pretty. I actually bought Tardis string lights for mine, because I'm a huge nerd.

Anne Pags "Even during the holiday season we should be reminded of our own mortality." This joke is a sweet realization.

PS. Your lights look like happiness to my eyes. Also, your neighbors are going to think you're so rad!

I did that to a plastic slider we had in yarn web! I added a Santa hat and he caught a candy cand!

Kathleen B Haha, I have a bunch of colored icicle lights hanging around my window. It's beautiful, but when I sleep, they are so bright! I have to unplug them nearly every night, which saddens me to a point, but some nights I fall asleep with the lights still plugged in. :)
I love your skeleton! He is so amazingly cute!!

You bought TARDIS lights?!?!?!?!?! From where? I WANT SO BAD NOW! Also, Rebecca, check out my picture ;) I agree with the beard too.

To every Whovian, I have a Doctor Who quiz on here so feel free to check it out.

Rebecca I bought them from Think Geek. They sell out really quickly though so I had them email me when they came back into stock.

They look like this:

Abby My parents are too lazy to put up our plastic(not too proud of that) tree. They also say it is too dangerous for me to do it so........I guess I'll be treeless for now. Hope you have fun with your tree
