The dark green trees, bright red stockings hung on fireplaces and the many different colours of twinkling lights in windows definitely show the arrival of December and the preparation for Christmas.
Despite the miserable weather and the dark days of winter, the festive season brings so much sparkle and light.
We have three trees in our home, one decorated by everyone in the lounge and the Mini Mes have their own in their rooms too. It's lovely in the evening when the bright colours illuminate the darkness.
The theme this week is the colour.
