There is one way in which I am not like my mother. She decorates for the seasons as if there are prizes for best, most and first. I, on the other hand, only buy pumpkins for pies and pepitas. So when it comes to seasonal decor, do you or don't you?
I haven't visited in a few months, but I know what my mom's house currently looks like: hay bales and pumpkins and maybe a kitchy scarecrow are in the front yard; Indian corn hangs on the front door; placemats have been replaced with ones shaped like fall leaves. There are orange candles and garlands of leaves and apples.
Autumn is my favorite season and I gladly welcome the crunching leaves, crisp air, and fall/winter holidays. I suppose I'd rather enjoy the changing seasons with pumpkin picking or apple cider than redecorating for a few short weeks or months. Also, living in an apartment, I suffer from a lack of storage. I can also be supremely lazy — my one attempt last year of holiday decorating was a scarf wreath, and it's still up.
So, do you decorate with the seasons? Share your reasons in the comments!
