Realizing that we're only a week away from Christmas, I finally made a point of hanging the Christmas decorations I'd bought a little while ago for our front porch.
The decorations are simple, and they do not involve lights, because I didn't want us to have to pay for extra electricity. I also didn't want to worry about how to hang them. Rather, I picked up primarily paper decorations, as well as some gel decorations of a snow man and the words "Happy Holidays," designed to stick to the window.
Because there were so many snowflakes, the whole process took about a half hour, but the porch is decidedly more festive now. Here are some photos of the results.
It's not enough to purchase the decorations; you have to put them up.
