Christmas has always been my favorite holiday. Ever since I was a little girl, the holiday season has been a magical and enchanting time of year. My mother was the queen of holiday decorators. We’d have a huge tree and the house would be adorned with garland, stockings and other indoor Christmas decor staples. When I moved into my own home and began shopping for my own Christmas decorations, I realized just how much the “Christmas magic” cost.
From the outrageous power bill to the expensive fresh tree, each Christmas, many families spend almost as much on decorations as they do on gifts. I, like many Americans, are attempting to make the holidays more economical and environmentally friendly without truly sacrificing the quality of my indoor Christmas decor.
