When we lived in a house, I had tons of Christmas Decorations and used to spend a whole day putting them up each year. Coming to a boat I had to do some serious whittleing and just bring a few pieces. It’s not so much about the bling but about brightening up mid-winter and adding some cheer to those long winter nights.
I also love lights outside, so approaching the boat has a festive feel to it.
So, we have 2, 100 foot sets of Solar lights outside, which circuit the whole boat. These are brilliant and means that I don’t have to turn them on and off each day.
Inside we don’t really have sufficient room for a tree, so I have used a couple of pine garlands piled up on a cabinet with lights and decorations which I think does equally well.
Finally I simply took advantage of the fact that we no longer have wallpaper to worry about and taped bells to the walls, also hung glass baubals on the light strings that I hung along the ceiling.
Simple but effective in my mind and it adds some festive cheer to the end of the year.
