Even though Christmas is one of the most heavily promoted holidays of all-time, it’s still possible to keep it simple. Despite what the TV says, not everyone is overflowing with Christmas spirit. So don’t feel obligated to go further than you feel necessary. Being peer pressured isn’t supposed to be part of the holidays. Before all the commercial investments it was about spending quality time with the people you love.
One of the main places where people go overboard is with Christmas decorating. As soon as the Halloween decorations come down, many people are in a mad dash to showcase their Christmas spirit. Some overcompensate with lawn ornaments while others try to imitate the Griswold’s by completely covering their home in lights.
Fortunately there’s a middle ground. You don’t have to smother your home in Christmas cheer to be normal. We have come up with a list of simple Christmas décor ideas that will make the minimalist inside you proud. Get ready to balance simplicity & holiday spirit!
