Question of the Day #1,154

My mother has been talking to elves.

Last week, on the phone, she said, "The elves are driving me nuts!"

"The elves?" I asked.

"Yes, they're being very naughty. I keep telling them to behave, but they don't listen."

"I see," I said.

"Oh, you'll see," she said.

Turns out, she's right. They're hanging from the chandelier.

And swinging from the railings.

What holiday decorating detail do you obsess over?



  1. Your mom's cute, and so are her mischievous elves.
    I get a little nutty about the electrical cords...I think it spoils the effect when they're too visible.

  2. The Christmas tree. I decide on themes, and the proper execution must happen. I even coach my little one on how to decide where to hang ornaments.

  3. Lights on the tree. My kids tried putting only two strings on it this year, and I had a fit (then added at least four more strings). Merry Christmas!

  4. Nativities. I collect them and they're taking over the house.

    Love your mom's elves!
