Better Poker

In September 2002, we decide to vacation in Myrtle Beach, the golf capital of the world so that I could play some golf and at night do some shopping. That's when we became crazy on Christmas decorations. We saw decorations which we've never seen before and we would spend hours and hours looking at everything. At that time there was 9 Christmas stores, stores such as Christmas Mouse, St-Nick Nacks, Christmas Village and others, but unfortunately, there's only 2 left today.

The last time we were there which was in 2008, I took my mother with us. When we came back, I was so scared going through customs as we were allowed to bring back no more than $300 worth of souvenirs. Lets just say the trunk was full, under the seat were packed and my mother was surrounded by stuff on the back seat.

Now, every year, after the last kid rang the door bell for Halloween, we start taking the Christmas decorations out. It takes about 3-4 weeks to put everything up, since we have to take lots down first and those are full days work. Every picture frame is taken down so that Christmas pictures go up.



Every room is decorated, yes even the bathrooms. Our fame to be are the nutcrackers, more than 100, from 2 inches to 4 feet. We have a village, with lights and lots of hand made stuff which my wife as done over the years and lets not forget outside. Now all this is done while Christmas songs are playing and at night it's Christmas movies.

Once every thing is up, we get to enjoy all the decorations for 6 weeks, up to the 14 of January and then we take another 2-3 weeks to take everything down (goes faster to take down) and we start all over again on November 1st.



As you can see, Christmas is huge for us, we're the talk of our families, we are crazy....LOL




I wish all the PSO members, Happy Holidays
