“Christmas can be celebrated in the school room with pine trees, tinsel and reindeers, but there must be no mention of the man whose birthday is being celebrated. One wonders how a teacher would answer if a student asked why it was called Christmas.”

“The joy of brightening other lives, bearing others’ burdens, easing other’s loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas.”

Budget friendly Christmas Decorations

Image

I rarely use any money on christmas decorations, as we`re often away at Christmas. However, I do have a tiny collection of random decorations that I put up every December to make our apartment christmassy. Most precious to me is the the Advent Star, the Advent calendar and Santa as they are things that I`ve had since I was a young child, and bring back so many cherished memories.

The rest of my decorations I`ve bought at several budget-friendly stores. The children figures was about 8$ total, and the red angels about 6$.

Last year, I even made a decoration from some old silver garland and aluminum foil, which turned out pretty great and didn`t cost me anything!
