Last week’s poll asked if you had lights in your yard. Over the last few years it seems less and less people are putting up lights for whatever reason. I wondered if it was just my observation or whether others had seen the same thing. Based on the responses to the poll it would appear that people just aren’t putting up lights like they used to. I hypothesize it’s because their lights have burned out and they hate the way the LEDs look. Why do you think it is?
This week’s poll comes courtesy of The Wife. She recently made a felt Christmas tree to which The Rooster (and eventually The Koala) can attach felt ornaments and presents to it. It’s honestly a really a cool thing and she had a lot of fun making it and The Rooster has had quite a bit of fun putting on and taking off the pieces. Growing up we made quite a few holiday items either at home or at school or other extracurriculars like Scouts. I still have a series of ornaments my family made back in 80s out of dough and my mother recently had to throw out a holiday candleholder centerpiece I had made in Cub Scouts–supposedly her favorite decoration.
Did you make a lot of your own gifts and/or decorations at the holidays? With the reduction of holiday lights out there, are you also finding less homemade crafts being made for the holidays? What was your most favorite item made, given, or received? Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and vote on the sidebar and then comment on below as I’d love to hear what you have to say. After you do both of those things feel free to check out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
