Watched two successive episodes of May The Best House Win on etc, one on Halloween houses, the other on Christmas houses. Both were too extreme for me. I couldn't imagine my children, my grandchildren, and myself living in any of those houses. The most I have for Halloween are three Barbie-size witches on broomsticks that my youngest sister sent me from Sydney years ago and a lighted parking sign for witches that I bought, also years ago. As for Christmas, we hang huge, fancy stockings on the divider between the dining room and the studio den; I bought them at Rustan's when Chito was only 16. Both episodes reminded me that I should never spend any more money on holiday decor--because most of them are really gaudy and because I do not want to increase my storage problems.
