I like tasteful
Christmas decor. My DH, on the other hand, adores
the most useless, tacky, enormous, ear jangling holiday themed gew gaws he can drag home
If it's big, lumpily made, sheds little bits, plays tinny carols incessantly, has flashing lights, glitter, real feathers (angels, you know) and/or fiber optics, he's in love...
apparently, it's hereditary, as a couple of days ago, his dad brought over a bunch of stuff (from RiteAid - 50% off!!!) & it's just dreadful - a motion detector Santa thingy (which only detects sometimes) that sort of plays Santa Claus is Coming to Town, whilst dropping bits of twigs & fake holly, & some similar items. DH also loves little Thomas Kincade villages that plug in, plus little other table cluttering scenes (fortunately, he bought these for his mother).
Do we just live with all this stuff in the interests of holiday peace, or is there any way to tactfully suggest that we don't need more
