Advice From My Christmas Decorations

  • Just because someone is shinier than you doesn’t make them better.
  • Hang around those who are different—you never know who you’ll meet.
  • If you fall, you might break.
  • Sometimes it’s good to be a shiny single strand, other times it’s good to be all clumped together. Both have their time and place.
  • Hide yourself away every so often so you remain captivating and appreciated.
  • Even though sometimes you’re left on a shelf, know that your time will come again.
  • Lights that blink too fast can give a mighty headache. Slow down!
  • If you’re all tangled up you’re of no use to anyone.
  • It’s bad enough there was no room at the inn. Don’t make it worse by excluding from the creche as well. Who said there couldn’t be parrots, or giraffes, or even a bachelor uncle or two?
  • There are worse things you can do than hang out on your front porch wearing a red bow.
  • If you have to be up on your roof in the snow and ice, at least make sure you’re lit.

What do your decorations say to you?
