How You Deck YOUR Halls...

We asked our readers on Facebook about their favorite decorations to celebrate the season. Here's what they told us:
"I think this year I'm putting out my manger and that's it. No tree." —Terri Murphy
"I like strategically stringing white lights throughout the inside of the house and turning the lights out...this is wonderful when it's snowing outside (:" —Cindy Kelly
"I like putting the tree up and decorating it, and lighting holiday scented candles, but probably won't put tree up this year cause my hubby is going to be deployed. I will probably go to my hometown." —Elizabeth McElwee
"I have a lot of decorations I've collected over the years. I have one ceramic figurine that I paid .00 at a yard sale, and it's almost 50 years old. It has a date stamped on the bottom of it. I usually have a theme table that has red & green linens and special decorations that have sentimental meaning to me. My husband and a close friend chop down a Christmas tree on our friend's property. I determine how to decorate the tree based on its shape and size. Our only decorations outside are wreaths, but the inside always looks festive. Scented candles always are nice, too." —Glynis Buschmann
"I love scented candles! I fill the house with festive smelling candles and decorate the tree in our garden with fairy lights. I drape them around the fence and shrubs, too.
