I love some of the ideas I saw in this article..in fact, I just might "borrow" a thing or two! One observation, however, "minimalist" and "holiday" should never appear in the same article together....(seriously?)

I love Christmas! But I like to decorate our tree on Dec. 13, that was our oldest daughter"s birthday! So to remember her we all do the decorating and our grandchildren and our daughter do the tree together!

Great to do list article. Very helpful and well thought out! Being organized sounds like a lot.... but if you do a little everyday leading up to the event the results are..... memorable!
