Thanksgiving is this week and I plan to decorate for Christmas the weekend after. I don’t like decorating too soon anyway. This is my first Christmas on my own and I’ve always said how I was going to decorate differently than my mom did. My mom always used colored lights, used ornaments to hide holes in the tree, preferred an angel on top. I’ve always wanted white lights and a mario star for my tree.
I made a Pinterest board (Pinterest rarely comes in handy) for my Holiday Ideas. Pinterest doesn’t offer much in terms of Nerd Decorations and while I have a bit on there, I got even more creative with my ideas. I can’t wait to do them so that I can take pictures of them. I have embedded my Pinterest board in this post. If you’d like to follow it to see all the ideas I have and stay tuned for the ones I will make, you are more than welcome to do so.
If you have any other cute ideas, share them with me!! If I like your idea, I’ll credit you in my next decor post on awesome nerdy Holiday decor.
I’m not a huge Christmas Decorations fan. I think my mom ruined that with the constant, crappy Christmas music, and her little freakouts because no one ever thought to wrap up the Christmas lights correctly, resulting in knots and tangles, not to mention the annual horror of having to go through every strand to find and replace broken and burnt out bulbs. I always hated decorated, until last year. The year before, my brother and I took down the tree and wrapped everything up so that we didn’t have to deal with it next year. You can imagine the relief when we brought up the boxes last year and saw that everything was wrapped and stacked neatly for us and decorating the tree only took about 2 hours rather than the standard all night event.
I’m so excited for this year. I get to do it all my way. And just to be a heathen, I’ll play Rock music.
