Since college students leave for break in the middle of December and before we leave we have finals, the holidays get celebrated at the beginning of the month.
Once everyone returned from Thanksgiving Break, it was time to break out the Christmas decorations and prepare for the holidays. This year, one of my roommate’s mom gave us a wreath to hang up. We also have Christmas lights strung everywhere. To decorate the walls, we attempted to wallpaper with wrapping paper, but gave up only half way down the hall. Of course we also have mistletoe hanging in the door frame in between our kitchen and living room.
It is fun to see how other apartments decorate as well. Some people hang stockings, some put up small trees, and some have holiday themed window clings. It is easy to get in the spirit when everywhere you turn there are decorations or someone talking about the holidays.
This year, my apartment even made little holiday cards to send to our family and friends. We took the pictures while we were dressed up for a Christmas party we were attending. My roommate then picstiched them together on her phone and this is what we came up with:
Happy Holidays from my apartment!
