Reason #3 why I love Christmas: decorations, projects and beauty
I think it was Dostoyevsky that has a quote that beauty will save the world. Beauty is definitely a gift from above and I think it is so important for the soul. I don't like decorating when it involves buying expensive things, but I do like making things (including yourself) look the best they can in the simplest way possible. Christmas can be a time to make homemade gifts, cook/bake more, make our houses look prettier than they usually do and appreciate small pleasures like a fireplace or snow more.
A recent quote from NieNie's blog:
"I love this time of year when all of us everywhere do everything we can to make our homes look pretty. We decorate with glitter and sparkles and lights."
