Christmas Decorations and Traditions - Olivia Denny

                         Christmas Decorations and Traditions

As the seasons start transitioning from fall to winter and Thanksgiving now officially coming to a close, the big question arises. Which families have decorated for Christmas, Hanukkah, or whatever holiday they celebrate? Many households decorate their homes the second there is a cold burst of wind, but others decide to wait until Thanksgiving is over, or until December. No matter when families decide to decorate, there are still traditions and holiday spirits they hold near and dear to their hearts. Here are some MHS Students' families take on this.

We start decorating before Thanksgiving because we want to get it over with before it gets too cold. Setting up the Christmas tree is my favorite Christmas decoration. A Christmas tradition that I cherish is a pickle ornament that is hidden around the house at Christmas and the person who finds it gets $20,” Cordle said. 

“We start decorating for Christmas after Thanksgiving because we don’t feel like it until December. If it were in my power, I would start near the middle of November or beginning. The lights are my favorite kind of decoration and something I look forward to every year is making my baked mac and cheese because it's good,” McCoy said.
