Advent Calendar - Dec 5 - Outdoor Decorations

Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories for December 5
Outdoor Decorations

This Blog is pleased to join with other GeneaBloggers around the world in presenting this Advent Calendar over the next 24 days leading up to the Christmas celebration - a different topic each day. We will attempt to post on each of the topics. Our invitation continues to be open to other writers to join us here with your comments (See Nov 29, Dec 5, Dec 12, and Dec 19 posts here - laber 'Advent Calendar' - for the topics; or the link in the title, here).

Outdoor Decorations

I just about skipped this one, quite frankly, but instead I will continue the 'minimalist' theme with a comment on our outdoor decorations on the cabin, in retirement. The photo is from 2009, but the high and low wreaths are the same. We have colored lights around the window, and put colored lights on the left holly bush (rather than the 'white tree' thing over there) this year.

I'm sure many of the other posts will be much more spectacular today!  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. Sometimes "less is more," Bill. I love the post and thanks for sharing.

  2. I like colored lights! I thought I liked the white ones when people first started to use them, but I missed all the color.

  3. Thanks for the early comments. Hope I have corrected both links. Sorry about that! ;-)
