People have asked…how did you decorate for Christmas in an RV? Interesting question. I did anticipate Christmas and packed a tub of small items last year when putting the decorations away at the end of the season. Too bad THAT tub is still in NH and the miscellaneous tub of decorations came with us!
We had many first world questions to contemplate…tree or no tree? Stockings? A wreath? Outside lights? With a total of 350 ft of living space, there definitely needs to be compromise. It didn’t take long in deciding that a tree, real or artificial, large or small was not needed. One decision down, on to the next. Stockings also fell in the not needed category and quickly were taken off the list. But a wreath, the welcoming essence of the season, was determined to be necessary. However, when your RV is driven into your lot, hanging it on the door would be futile. So any good RVer knows it goes on your ladder on the back! Go figure. And the lights…well, if you know Bob he is the original Clark Griswold so the few lights we had were strung up outside! The remainder of the decorations inside are minimal, but created a cozy Christmas home for us.
What we learned so clearly is that Christmas is not in the volume of decorations (goodbye 10 tubs in storage). Christmas is in your heart, your memories and the true reason we celebrate the day…the birth of Jesus! As we await the birth of a precious grandchild here in Alabama, we pray you all had a very Merry Christmas. May you each find Christmas in your heart all year long!
