Get ready for the Holidays - It's a Wrap!

Wrap your doors with loved ones this X-mas!

This is one of two doors that gets covered with Christmas Cards

OK, so many of you are asking, "How can I display all of my Christmas cards?"  Well, I have an answer for you.  I can't take credit for this idea because I copied it from my dad who has been doing this since I was a young child.  A few days after Thanksgiving, I wrap the door of my coat closet with fun Christmas paper and add a large bow.  Not only is this is an inexpensive way to decorate the house but when the Christmas cards start to arrive in the mail, we are ready to tape them on the wrapped door for all to see.  This wrapped door of Christmas cards is quite the topic of conversation when we entertain people for the holidays.  Our family loves to see these cards so much that I leave them up until the end of January and sometimes into February.

A note of caution -  many years ago, while my niece was babysitting our kids, she was looking at all the Christmas cards on the door.  She noticed a really cute boy in one of the cards and said that she wanted to meet him.  Well, I will spare you all the details but an intervention took place so that they could meet and lo and behold, after years of dating, they married.  

You just never know what relationships might transpire from the Christmas door.  Enjoy the holidays, it's a wrap!
