    I'm sure many of you have decorated your homes or offices for the Holidays. Let's see them! Post your pictures on here!

    OK, people might be shy to share. So here's mine:

    We have 3 trees this year, 2 full sized, one small. As with previous years, we have one non-disney tree, one completely disney tree, and a new, smaller one that has only Disney globe ornaments.

    First, the non-Disney tree that is in the living room.

    BTW, even with this non-Disney tree, there is an unintentional "Hidden Mickey" in this tree. Can you spot it? :)

    There are several Disney-themed holiday decorations in the living room. This is on a side table.

    And these are on the console table behind the sofa.

    Up in the bedroom level, I have this displayed on a cabinet.

    And now, comes the Family room where the majority of the Disney decorations are. First and foremost, there's the main Disney tree. It is populated 100% with Disney ornaments, and the poor tree is now sagging from the weight of the numerous ornaments.

    As you might be able to tell, this is also where I have my "wall of pins". The following are a few close-ups of the various ornaments that I have on the tree.

    There's something interesting about the tree. I typically host 2 holiday parties for my friends each year. We normally get large crowds (typically between 12-25 people). One game that we play is that in the Disney tree, we hide two small Tweety ornaments. So I tell everyone that in the Disney tree, there are two "hidden Tweetys". The first person to find a hidden Tweety on the tree wins a prize!.

    I think you can guess the commotion after that, because everyone will try to crowd around the tree, and at some point, people are crawling on the floor, contorting themselves in different positions, trying to find these hidden Tweetys! It is a lot of fun, and we do this every year! :)

    The other tree sits on a console cabinet behind the sofa in the family room as well. It has only Disney globe ornaments. It is flanked on both side by Donald holiday figurines, and a giant Mickey on the floor on one side.

    That stocking is pretty huge, as you can guess from just looking at it.

    Is this "wow" as in amazingly good, or "wow" as in "you need to go seek help"?

    OMG. If my sister-in-law saw these photos, she would first die of jealousy and then demand your address so she could visit and pay homage.

    My wife and get a pretty nice wreath each year from a neighbor (this year's is in the shape of a peace sign) along with sprays of evergreens and red berries. They are all outside. Inside decorations consist of displayed Christmas cards/pictures and some funky figurines and a few old-looking ornaments hanging here and there. Nothing to see here, folks! Move along.

    We got this Hannukiah (candlabra) that has lightbulbs instead of candles. Each night you screw more of them in until the whole thing is lit up. Tonight's the first night, so we screw in the central one and one of the soldier ones. As you do, you recite a blessing. Blessed be G-d, ruler of the universe, who blessed us with his commandments, and commanded us to screw in the lightbulbs of Hannukah.

    Incredible Zz, I have never seen that many Disney pins, two walls full of them, framed. I have been to Disney at least 10 times while my daughter was growing up. For you to collect that many pins you must have been there many more times than that. I don't collect them, but if I did I would seek you out for some rare ones to be sure. I have been to the original Disneyland on the west coast a couple of times as well.

    Sorry about the size I do not manage to control. Maybe you have to press Ctrl and rotate a mouse wheel or something.

    I will take the decorations down on 6th of January.
