One of the benefits, in my opinion, of having never spent the Christmas holidays in your own home is that you do not have to decorate.

We make special trips to see the lavish decorations at the U.S. Botanic Gardens and around the Whitehouse elipse and enjoy the tree and decorations at my parents' and sister's houses, but haven't ever bothered to decorate our own home.

There's a chance that I'm not off the hook this year (plans are very much up in the air) and it's got me thinking decorations contingency plan.

What I do know is that I'm not going with this motif:

If it works for you, however, a zombie nativity set can be purchased from fetishforethics on Esty.
