Our holiday decorations are really pretty easy to deal with – assuming we have enough batteries: it always takes more than we think, and more than we have, no matter how much we plan. And again this year, we ran out of batteries before getting all the lights done – the swags for the fence are still in their boxes. Our new nutcrackers are quite dashing. But every year, I do wish that the contemporary light strings had the same colors as the “classic” light strings. Purple, no matter how much I love it elsewhere, doesn’t belong in my Christmas lights.
