One of my favorite parts about the holidays is all the pretty decorations. I love setting up our Christmas tree and decorating it with all of the ornaments that we have collected over the years. I also love stringing lights around our house and putting a festive wreath on our front door. It’s such a beautiful and magical time of year!
When it comes to decorating, I would say I have a classic style. I love white lights and I treasure ornaments that are homemade. Our tree is filled with ornaments that our kids have made at school, as well as ornaments that my husband and I made when we were kids. We also have quite a few that were given to us over the years. Each ornament tells a story and that’s what makes our tree special!
Speaking of personal decorating traditions and style, Kmart and Sears recently conducted a survey that found that:
- 1 in 4 Americans will begin to deck the halls one month before the holiday.
- 41 percent of Americans defined their signature design as “classic,” followed by “colorful” (37 percent) and “vintage” (12 percent).
- More than half (58 percent) of participants felt the most essential decoration for the holidays was the Christmas tree.
- Nearly 25 percent of Americans choose decorating as their favorite holiday activity, with listening to Christmas music and shopping as other favorites.
The holidays are right around the corner, and no retailers are better prepared to help you deck the halls than Kmart and Sears. Check out some of the great items I bought at Kmart for just under $100.
I can’t believe how many great items I got! What a great value and the best part is now my home is even more ready for Christmas. Check out the Kmart Holiday Collection for more great holiday decorations!
