Celebrate the holidays with Scarlet Wilson!

Christmas is a big thing for me.  Some people might say I’m a little obsessed.  I have a number of traditions that I’ve developed over the years.  The biggest is my obsession with Christmas ‘tat’ as my husband likes to call it.

Ornaments of every description, pictures, tree decorations, stuffed animals, nativity scenes, anything that lights up… Yip.  I love them all.  And they are probably in my cupboard.

There is a certain famous shop in London that opens its Christmas Shop every September.  (See below).  Think of me as the proverbial child in a sweetie shop as soon as this happens.  One the traditions I’ve developed since being a published author is to buy a Christmas tree bauble with the year on it from this shop.  (Also see below!)

Although this years hasn’t made it into the photograph yet – the latest addition is silver.  I’ve already emailed them to request purple next year.  Although I have a million tree decorations, these are definitely my favourites!

    1. I had to look up “Christmas tat” to see what it means in Scotland/UK. :) We’d probably refer to it as kitsch.

  1. What a wonderful tradition to commemorate your authoring years!! It’s always fun to decorate for Christmas.

  2. Scarlett, I too collect ornaments! I try to get a new one every year. My favorite Christmas party is the ornament swap the ladies at our church has. We eat, then draw numbers and start swapping, the ladies can be down right ugly if they want a certain ornament, lol! All in good fun though. When we go to the mountains of Tennessee, I always make time to go to the Christmas shops even if it’s the middle of summer.

  3. I am with you I absolutely love the Christmas season. We have a store called Wights with 30 decorated trees throughout the store. I could go on and on. It’s beautiful.
