One of the things I enjoy most about the Christmas season is checking out the Christmas displays in different neighborhoods. While Andy and I were in South Jersey today, we took some time to view Christmas lights/decorations. Since I’m a huge Snoopy fan, we went searching for homes with Snoopy/Peanuts displays. We managed to locate some Snoopy Christmas displays, including the one pictured in Delaney’s, a restaurant in downtown Cape May. Of course, many homes featured an array of lights and decorations filled with holiday cheer. I never grow tired of seeing them!
One of the most favorite parts of Christmas is the act of decorating my space. When I was a little girl, I enjoyed watching my grandfather setting up the Christmas lights in the living room. It always took a couple hours for him to arrange the lights, but it always looked like a work of art when it was complete. While I currently don’t live in a home with tons of Christmas lights, I love bringing out my Christmas decorations for my room every year.
Since I enjoy everything Peanuts and Snoopy-related, the following items all feature the characters in their Christmas element.
I also have window decals picturing Snoopy and Woodstock by the Christmas tree, but I will take photos of them later in the week, when the room lighting isn’t reflecting too much!
Today is a ‘staying local’ Saturday: the only big thing that Andy and I did was go pumpkin picking at the buffalo farm in our area. I enjoy searching for pumpkins, and I’m so glad that there was one in the farm that was in great condition. I also made sure to bring my itty bitty Snoopy and Linus, since they rightfully belong in a pumpkin patch!
A couple years ago I would have been extremely annoyed at spending a Saturday night at home. However, now that we need to save money, especially since we’re getting married next summer, it’s important to keep track of what we spend. If it means spending a weekend night at home, so be it. It will be a productive night; I have lots of reading to catch up on, and Game 7 of NLCS is on, so it will be entertaining.
I’m glad that I have all four Easter Snoopys! I chose them by randomly picking packages. The Easter Snoopys were sold in sealed bags that you couldn’t see through them. I still randomly chose a bag with anticipation of the new Itty Bitty Snoopy that would come home. Gladly different Easter Snoopys were selected.
