Such is the question I was pondering last night before I went to bed and still was pondering this morning.
My frame of reference include just a few men and I can’t imagine any of them decorating a house for Christmas as bachelor males. Even my mother wasn’t going to after my dad died, but I went over and decorated for her every year. She loved to decorate, but just found it a chore later on. Me? I always decorate for everything, even if I don’t believe I’ll have company, because for me, it’s special and it makes me feel good. Now, my next-door neighbor is big on lights….even for Halloween, he tells me!
I walk into a store that is decorated like this and I want my place to look like it, though it won’t be decorated quite as homey as this. And for the first time in years, I won’t have a fireplace. 🙁 But I have a lovely big patio, and that is worth much more to me. 🙂 Yes, it does get cold here. I would sit in front of the fireplace at my daughter’s house and enjoy the warmth on a winter’s day.
So tell me, if a guy is an Arctic wolf and has decorated for Christmas in his home on the lake in northern Minnesota, what does it look like? He’s an Arctic wolf, but not from the Arctic…He’s from Seattle.
So what do you think?
