Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas. Not “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays”. Merry Christmas! Hanukkah gets to be Hanukkah. Diwali gets to be Diwali. Regardless of what you believe, let’s call it what it is without the fear of being “politically incorrect”. Christmas.
Now that I’ve blown off the steam caused by that yearly pet peeve, I wanted to share some pictures of Christmas decorating in different colour schemes. This may be a bit late for those eager beavers who begin their Christmas decorating as soon as Thanksgiving is over, but food for thought when you consider what direction to go in when decorating next year.

I’m not getting to every single colour scheme in this post but will instead finish with a classic, monochromatic red Christmas decorations:
For a less traditional twist on a monochromatic red scheme (hint: pink is a tinted red).
I hope that you have found these pictures entertaining, if not inspiring and I wish you a very Merry Christmas.
