Sometimes I think by the time we reach this stage in life, decorations become a hassle With that point made, I have given away or thrown out the majority of my ornaments and am sticking to a small tree. It's something I have done for at least the last ten years. I can't 'not decorate', especially with my little granddaughter in the mix, but I can certainly cut back. Some of my old decorations placed here and there in the apartment, and a tree and and wreath on the patio. Baam! This is not mine, but a good example of decorating for everyone..And you can still see it from the Christmas dinner table..
