Merry Christmas

We have our stockings from Armenia, along with the ones my mom needlepointed for us years ago. Nativity sets from Italy, Austria and Prague. An entire mafia of Russian Santas. Four trees (I blame my husband). We have ornaments from just about everywhere we've been together: Lake Placid, Catalina Island, Helsinki, Hong Kong, St. Michaels, Seattle...

So you could say the house is ready for Christmas.

But I'm not. How'd it get here so fast this year?

Oh you're so close ... you must go to Jerusalem and buy yourself another nativity set... the Christmas decorations there are amazing - so sentimental considering the location!

So pretty and festive! Very, very pretty. You've done a lovely job :)

Wow! We only have four decorations on one tree...I am so scared to open up the boxes to find out how many made it through the latest move.

What a great idea ... to have the nativity scenes from those locations. I just posted about creating memories and traditions ... and I think I may have to beg off on your tradition to have nativity scenes !! Wonder if I can find one in Delhi?

Okay, you have me beat into shards! But please visit my blog to see my 'Old Age Will Come' tree so I won't feel so deprived! (www.elaineinarkansas.blogspot.com)
Just LOVE your blog!
If you lived in Arkansas nobody would turn a hair if you showed up with dung on your overalls.
But we have a lot more space.

These are all so gorgeous! Will you be adding anything to this collection from there? I know that Islam is the dominant religion there, but is there anything that you *could* get there?

@ Jen A - there are tons of Christian decorations here, from Nativity sets to hand-carved rosaries. Looking for the right piece, but you know I'll have one soon enough.
