The Crate & Barrel holiday catalog came yesterday and it's all I can do not to call them, give them our credit card number and say, "one please! No, no page number, just one... of everything." In reality I never buy anything from the catalogs because I almost literally never buy clothes or home goods unless they're on sale, but I drool nonetheless. So because I can't actually buy all the fun stuff I thought I'd pass along my favorites in the hopes that it'll quell the urges.
As you can see, I tend to prefer Reindeer and Snowmen in my holiday decorations. This is for a few reasons - partly I prefer that the decorations are more non-denominational. There are several holidays in December in my mind - Christmas, Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, etc - and since I'm don't consider myself a "Christian" per say, I like to keep it a little more inclusive. Also, and this is a far bigger consideration, Santa only comes in December, whereas snowmen, snowflakes, and maybe even reindeer come in January and February when all of our holiday decorations are still very firmly in place. And then I can pretend that these are just our "winter decorations" and not our "embarrassingly overdue-to-be-taken-down Christmas decorations" It's all about practicality with me.
