Can you believe it, Christmas Day is five short weeks from today? I couldn't believe it when I just counted it out on my calendar. Where has this year gone? It has truly flown by, and I haven't even begun to plan my Christmas Decor.

Last year, the boyfriend and I decorated his front living area with his Department 56 Snow Village collection that has been building since childhood. He has now accumulated a substantial number through purchases on eBay, and the great care that was taken with the original pieces from his family.

We want to make this an annual tradition. What special traditions do you and your family have at Christmas? Leave comments below.
