Christmas Clutter? And to Elf or no Elf?

Christmas Clutter? And to Elf or no Elf?

Sometimes people confuse me. The same people that put up Christmas decor on October 1st because “it made them happy” are the same people that took it down at 12:01 on 12/26 because it is too much clutter and Christmas is over. Now, your house is your business, but is Christmas really clutter?

Now I love my Fall decor and LOVE Thanksgiving most of all! What is better than food, faith, football and thankfulness? Orange is my favorite color so my house is beautiful all of October and November. Jesus birth is a gift, but Christmas can be stressful so I embrace the THANKS and indulge in neutrals! When Christmas pops up, then I replace orange with red. Other than the tree, I an just putting one color over another and when it is all take down then my old stuff goes back up…where is the clutter?

Why the rush? If it made you happy in October then let it make you happy in January! Am I missing something? After Christmas calm is the best time to appreciate the season!

Side note: My son loves the magic of this Elf and Sip is fun especially as we get creative and cater to my what son loves…but when it is time to go…that Christmas joy kill can be gone! We would never give it up…but he is our only clutter!
