After the whirlwind that was Halloween 2020 I was so decorated-out that I really didn’t want to think about Christmas. Some might ask “what’s new?” After all, as most of you know the whole C-word shebang isn’t my thing. But I got there eventually and after much effing and jeffing, The Witch at OneandSeventy’s 2020 Festive Yuletide Home finally emerged.
There was never any doubt I‘d be retrieving my beloved Yule Log from storage. But being bombarded on Instagram by square after square of beautifully decorated homes since early November did nothing for my increasingly Bah Humbug attitude to dragging out the sparkle.
And then the village committee (of which I am now somehow a part) decided that our Halloween Trail was such a huge success, we should have a Christmas One. Oh bloody marvellous. Shot myself in the foot there! I could hardly play grinch when the neighbours were making such an effort, could I?
Between you and me, I’m kinda glad they suggested it, or our little Victorian cottage might not be looking quite so pretty. Awwwwww. But Shhhh… don’t tell anyone I said that.
And so here it is. The School House in all its festive glory.
Come on in and enjoy my Festive Yuletide Home Tour 2020. Watch out for a little rogue Creepmas. If we had the room, I might be tempted to Santa Hat the whole of Halloween and leave it up all year!
And there you have it.
I hope you enjoyed The Witch at OneandSeventy’s Festive Home Tour 2020. After much procrastination, I ended up loving putting together this year’s Yuletide decorations. Every time our lights come on, they fill me with such joy and hope for better times to come.
Now though, I have to admit I’m looking forward to a little time off. It’s been a massively difficult and stressful year for us all and despite spending most of it not leaving the house, I still managed to be run off my feet. No doubt you have too.
So I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a very magical Winter Solstice. As they say, the night is darkest before the dawn – the light will soon return. In the meantime, I hope the darkest time of the year brings you a chance to rest, recuperate and regain your energy after the challenges of 2020.
A hui hou,
