Everyone who entered the living room for the first time took a step backward to recover from the shock of bright multi-colored lights on every wall and piece of furniture, the bright tinsel hanging over every picture and mirror and the many flashy hanging accordion-style ropes that covered everything in sight. And to add that final 1960's touch, we had a reflective "Merry Christmas" banner hanging in tatters across the drapes. With the over-sized and well-lite ceramic tree from the 1970's along with the Christmas tree covered with lights and ornaments, it was a site for sunglasses.
Let's just say I knew we had hit our target when someone exclaimed, "Wow, it looks like Christmas was shot out of a canon in here!"
And how was your Christmas?
