It is the most wonderful part of the year in spite of the fact that it is a hectic time of year when we are so busy trying to buy the perfect gift, create the perfect ambiance in and outside our homes, and juggle all the party hopping that comes along with the season.

Furthermore, looking at all the festive displays helps us all get in the festive mood to create something of our very own.
