22 Days ’til Christmas: Naturally

Christmas is the only holiday I deem worthy of decorations (except the jack-o’-lanterns on Halloween) because it lasts longer that a day. I’ll be putting up some more decorations this weekend while we wait until much closer to the 25th to get our tree. Walking by the river lately we’ve come across two reindeer some unknown artist has crafted from detritus and just a little wire. Oak galls, twigs, berries, and even some trash all add up to some excellent seasonal, if ephemeral, art. We heard from another walker that there was another deer that we missed. Aren’t they cool?

Why not walk through your neighborhood to see the outdoor decorations at other people’s houses? Or do some foraging for twigs and pinecones to make your own like the anonymous artist did for the reindeer above. Happy walking.
