Deck the Halls
If holiday decorations bring you joy then this is the year to go all out! And don’t be afraid to decorate early. After all, you’re going to be spending a lot of time at home this holiday season so you might as well enjoy it as long as you can!
Just remember not to overexert yourself. You can decorate in stages by decorating a different room each day. Another great option is to get an artificial Christmas tree as they require less maintenance than a real tree. But most of all, make sure you have fun decorating for the holidays!
