2016 47c Star
 

One of the best ways to spend a chilly winter night is wrapped in a blanket with a cup of hot chocolate – watching the snow fall and admiring  the holiday decorations. 

Winter paints a lovely scene outside the window.  In the backyard, bushes are covered with a blanket of white.  The leafless trees cast blue and purple shadows on the freshly fallen snow. 

Inside, everything is decorated festively.  Holly-red candles flicker in each of the windows.  The Christmas tree – a six-foot Fraser fir – fills the living room with the smell of fresh evergreen.  Multi-colored lights twinkle merrily and reflect off the silver tinsel wound around the tree.  Its ornaments are a mix of family heirlooms and multi-colored baubles.  On top of the tree is a light-up gold star – a reminder of the Star of Bethlehem. 

Across the street, the neighbors have a small wreath hung on their front door, its red bow and colorful ornaments dusted with snow.  A Christmas tree glows warmly in their front window, illuminating a patch of ground outside.

Bright, colorful decorations – and the meaningful traditions behind them – have been an important part of the winter season for many years. They celebrate the holidays and bring warmth and happiness during the coldest time of the year.
